I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Above average starting hourly pay

Cons

No trust or care about employees. Work Thanksgiving. All employees must be patted down before leaving the store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs to be more hands on training and more accessibility of management

    I worked at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Employee Discount was the only good thing employees can get out of the company.

    Cons

    Growth and pay. The pay is horrible and the opportunity growth, good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school!

    I worked at Best Buy as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Used to allow ROWE work environment, but now the CEO has killed that- it's just a miserable place to work.
    2. Everyone has covered parking.

    Cons

    1. Witnessed and was told by my bosses that Best Buy does not hire people over the age of 35 into the IT roles.
    2. Witnessed and was told by my bosses that there are some jobs that men do better than women, including mine, and that they would not hire any more women into the group- no matter how qualified.
    3. Witnessed and was told by my bosses that they do not hire Indians because, and I quote here, "They smell funny".
    4. Work load and time frame was outrageous- your hair is on fire every day. There is no relief.
    5. Everyone, including contractors, cannot take vacation during the "busy time" which is October through the end of February.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I was told by my bosses that it was cheaper to hire young and payout rarely for the discrimination suits, it really pisses me off that you can't treat an employee like a person.

    Also, the ROWE work environment was incredibly successful and made it a great place to work.

    Ever since the Turkey fiasco, you've really let the corporate headquarters fall into disrepair- the carpet needs replacing and the walls need painting and the bathrooms are always disgusting.
