The managers don't really care about much, they just show up and hide most of the time that they are there.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsIt is what you make of it, but don't expect anyone to really help you out. If you start to do good most of the managers will notice you and I kid you not

ConsNo one really cares about what you do. You don't get any type of training whatsoever. You just show up pretty much, everyone hates working there, even the managers, which would surprise most people as to how can people not like working selling technology to customers? It's one of the easiest jobs out there.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey should get new management, they should hire people who are suitable for the job, people who are excited to work and who are leaders, not managers who can barely walk, or walk with their cell on glued to their hands, while walking everywhere and not even looking up. From the moment she walks in to the moment she leaves she is on her cell phone no matter what. (this manager is the worst one I have ever seen.) Not even joking!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Career started out great but rapidly faded through lack of leadership

    General Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Good GM Salary, benefits and discounts, access to online training to to increase product knowledge.… Cons: Company is extremely incestuous, all of leadership is aware but nothing is done to curb this behavior. This takes place at junior and senior leadership… Advice to Senior Management: My advice to upper management is to spend as much time and effort into training junior management as you do store management and hourly employees.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
