Pros

Usually always hiring, not hard to get hired, better than a fast food job

Cons

Company does not care about its employees though it would have you believe that is does. Pay is very unfair and uneven. New, non-experienced worker was hired for same position as me and received over $2 more an hour than me and other associates. In fact, the person was most critical to our department and was there the longest actually got the lowest pay. They treat you like a child as well. Not much good about this job.

Advice to Management

The management are just overpaid peons as well. They have no authority to fix the real issues that are wrong with this company.

    Pros

    Latest & greatest products, competitive pay, discounts, benefits, ability to bonus, guaranteed sales

    Cons

    No work life balance, district support and above micromanage off of scorecards, horrible training rhythms for new hires, understaffed in stores

    Advice to Management

    Allow for all revenue bands to have department supervisors to take the stress off of store management

  2. Think twice before working in IT Procurement

    Pros

    Benefits.
    Building is nice. It has almost everything you need during the day.
    Discount is ok but not good for TV's, computers are large priced items

    Cons

    Worked in Procurement. Very disorganized, Managers and Directors play favoritism at any cost. No real advancement. No work from home policy. Leaders state open door policy but when approached, told they are to busy. The "Cool Gang" group attitude is accepted, which managers etc are a part of. If you don't belong you do not get any say in group decisions, Bonus's are part of hiring package but never paid out. Processes are worked on in depth just to be dropped with no further communication until they decide to do it another way. If you want to apply for a different position within Best Buy your manager has to approve it before you can submit a Resume. If you are considering this group, ask how many people have actually left this group in just the past yr. on their own. Need I say more?

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is actually going on underneath you. There is a lot of unhappy employees
