Pros

Growth opportunity if willing to change locations. Plenty of learning opportunity if management gives you the time.

Cons

No consistency through out the company. GM of stores can re- write policies as they see fit. Annual pay raises are extremely small for line level employees.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good job for a college student. Better than average pay. Looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Way too serious. Employees are a mix of high school drop outs that don't plan on going to school, but do plan to climb the best buy career ladder... Even if they've held the same position for 5 years. Still trying. Some stores budget is too high, so no bonus. There is no encouragement to sell more if you get paid the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit promoting high school drop outs with no degree to management. Especially because of favoritism.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture at the corporate office is a refreshing change of pace from my previous experiences at very white collar companies. I think this leads to workers here being extremely dedicated to Best Buy, as I've never seen so many long careers at one company.

    Cons

    This same culture that is refreshing, also could be attributing to their downfall. The place is a ghost town at 2pm on a Friday... ever heard of a 40 hour work week people?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture, better recognize the talent.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
