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

Pros

Fun employees, fast paced environment, cool products

Cons

Store leadership is micro managed by district staff. Long hours and then you still end up doing more work at home. Store are consistently understaffed due to payroll restraints. This leads to frustrated customers all the time everyday.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micro managing and creating distractions from the things you actually want your management team to accomplish. Let your store managers run the store. Respect peoples need for work / life balance. Many other companies have found a way to schedule for the needs of the business without devaluing peoples family time.

    Pros

    you are getting paid, and the employee discount is awesome.

    Cons

    management is horrible... very little room for growth... horrible sales ethics (management) all they really seem to care about is their bonus... horrible training (kind of just get thrown out there)... getting a raise is so hard!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    show a little more concern for those people helping you get an extra pay check and help with their development
