    Pros

    developing good people skills, friendly environment, good discounts, flexible schedule, learning selling skills

    Cons

    constant evaluation and being shadowed and watched to sell and perform, no breaks guaranteed unless you work more than 7 hours and 15 minutes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guarantee a 15 minute break for between 4 hours and 7 hours and 15 minutes. Also if someone works over 10 hours, give more than a 30 minute break.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary was good in comparison to other retailers The company used to be amazing. Focusing on the employee and opportunity for growth was abundant.

    Cons

    They reorganize every year, which leads to anxiety about loosing your job. There is no incentive to grow with the company any longer, because the higher you go the more of a chance your job will be eliminated. They recently rolled out a year ago the United States Operating Model and for the most part, it was a good idea, but it put managers in reviews with associates more than running the floor or working in their discipline. They rolled out an asset protection lead position that was amazing, but then took AP away from the door and wondered why shrink shot through the roof... then realized that was crazy and brought them back to the door. Think before you act BBY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it about the employees again. Everyone is miserable.
