One of the worst jobs I've ever had.

I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There really wasn't any pros. They hire people with no experience, but are picky for no specific reason. Discriminates in both employment and treatment of current employees.

Cons

No opportunity for advancement, horrible treatment of employees, highly unethical.

    Can be a good company - but its all about cutting costs and piling more work on workers

    Pros

    Generally the company culture is good - people really care about doing the right thing.

    Cons

    As with most companies - you are very important until they want to cut costs - then you aren't so important anymore. Focus is on too many things which makes the core business suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the politics - if you actually listen to people vs. just senior management you might hear some interesting things.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The discount wasn't terrible, not much else though.

    Cons

    You aren't on commission, but they ride you like you are. Underpaid and under appreciated. If you hit your hard to attain numbers they don't care. If you are under they ride you. It's a terrible job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There isn't much to say. Don't rely so much on the overpriced geek squad protection packages to turn a profit.
