Pros

A great company to work for in upper management if retail is your thing. Great pay, bonuses are lovely and there always advantages of getting free trips and product. Knowledge of new electronic products before it hits the stores is a plus.

Cons

As a regular associate the pay could be better; they are the one who directly deal with customer interactions good or bad. Best buy deals with a lot of 3rd parties for deliveries and geek squad which can cause a lot of issues. The company is constantly changing there structures and policies which could be good or bad depending on whether it benefits the company or the customer. Health benefits they provide aren't that great for what you pay per check. You don't get a thorough thanksgiving and don't get to take advantage of Black Friday.

Advice to Management

You need to be able to adapt to change working for this company

    Pros

    Growth, Non-commission sales, Fun environment, Caring management, Generous Employee Discount, Flexible Scheduling around school, tuition reimbursement, stock discount,

    Cons

    Compensation - Base Pay, Break/Lunch policy, 1 year stock hold policy

    Advice to Management

    Microsoft, Samsung, and Apple are all non-commission retailers and offer great compensation - base pay rates. We will continue to lose a lot of great talent to these partners if our base pay does not get more competitive.
