Former Employee - Department Supervisor

I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent training and networking opportunities, great benefits including tuition reimbursement.

Cons

Leadership positions are very stressful! Lack on continuity in communication...expectations vary from manager to manager, store to store. If you have an excellent manager, you will do well and learn a lot. But often managers are promoted based on numbers, not on managerial and leadership skills. High turnover in management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to talk to each other! Get on the same page! And give your employees some security by not "reorganizing" and letting people go every single spring!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and implement more of what your employees would see on the sales floor. We interact with customers on a daily basis. We know what sales and what doesn't. The stores operate completely differently now as they seem to be more along the lines of Apple Stores. They don't have the same lovable atmosphere that Best Buy used to have.
