Pros

Peers were amazing to work with, but like Starbucks they are loosing their talent fast.

Cons

Upper Management was a joke. The red head ran the place the the Marine Corp. Sorry, but talking down to people does not boost morale. If you sell a lot they are your friend, if you don't, your job is at risk.

Advice to Management

They know it all, so why bother. They better change their core competancies and management strategies to raise retention rate. You are losing your talent! Why?

    Pros

    Anyone is willing to help you or answer a question. A lot of eLearnings to familiarize yourself with your job.

    Cons

    You have to be a quick learning and be able to self-manage. Keep track of your number and put yourself in good standing.

    Advice to Management

    Input training/orientation times manually for the new employees. Had difficulty remembering how many hours and what days I did orientation/staff meeting by the time I learned how to manually clock-in.


  2. Great pay in comparison to industry

    Pros

    again the pay is pretty good especially the bonus potential.

    Cons

    the stress level is ridiculous, the district managers verbally tell you to align with the company values, while at the same time they wink and nudge at you to through those values out the window and gain results at all cost, all whilst protecting themselves.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the people who are used to the "old Best Buy" and their archaic ways of running the business. also Hubert Jolie is doing (what seems like a very) good job, but they nee to work on streamlining of the systems. but the biggest issue is the employee experience and the way you treat employees (especially the department managers, and sups) and respect and promote a work/life balance!
