    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits, pay, and training that is emphasized makes the job worth the time. there's a bonus structure in place that gives employees an incentive to perform. There's a company wide culture of developing employees into future leaders. The 401k package and tuition reimbursement are fantastic as well.

    Cons

    The hours and craziness during the holiday season can be a little overwhelming. At times, the goals set by store management versus Corp may be unrealistic at times. Not a huge fan of the return exchange policy either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff proactively, work harder to make employees better, and always be approachable!!

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
