I worked at Best Buy

Pros

Decent pay for the work I did, plus I got to talk about technology and help people understand technology better.

Cons

Some of the managers were a pain, but most were a pleasure to work with. There were cliques and if you weren't in one you could feel like an outsider.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to micromanage and nit pick!

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of Room to move up, and plenty of opportunities to learn new skills about computers and other electronics and appliance commodities.

    Cons

    Numbers culture is definitely a factor, while not focused on constantly, they are brought up enough to remind you that you are worth more to them if you have bigger numbers rather than have a good work ethic. (Reiterated many times through many coworkers.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit, hiding everything behind buzzwords, and act with more realism. The corporate culture isn't everything. Act like people from time to time.
