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

    Pros

    Decent hourly wage (depending on store location)
    Fun environment to work in if you like technology, electronics, etc.
    Not too difficult to move up in the company (lots of crappy employees, so the few good ones stand out)

    Cons

    Holidays SUCK! (Black Friday will make you hate people)
    Management (Sups/managers) seem to just push the workload onto the select employees who actually do work, and ignore those who just stand around and talk with each other.
    Not sure how well they will continue to do as a company since so many other places are cheaper. In the past people would come in so they could talk with "educated" employees before making big purchasing decisions (tv's, appliances, etc.) but with the internet research is becoming easier to do on your own, so less of a need for sales people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't shove all the work on the few employees who actually accomplish stuff. Why should I bust my but for the same hourly wage other people are making who are standing around talking and never engaging customers or doing anything productive?

    Pros

    Discount that is decent. And The employees can be nice.

    Cons

    Politics and popularity dictate reviews, promotions, and pay raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team is pathetic at best, they need to follow the rules all the time not as they choose. Low moral fiber as well as a need to always lie.
