I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Pay, Benefits, Bonus structure and company geography lend to Best Buy being a great employer

Cons

Frequent travel that is often last minute, inconsistency in performance management, highly subjective decision making by leadership, inconsistent human resources practices. Annual restructures lend to a high level of anxiety due to fear of losing your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand your workforce. The company claims to be employee focused however their actions rarely support this statement.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working around technology and troubleshooting problems for people and client base. The employee discount is nice to have but it doesn't even come close to making up for lack of compensation and laughable bonuses.

    Cons

    No room to move to more in depth and complicated positions within the IT field. Best Buy highers outside companies to fix their internal hardware. Pay is low and doesn't keep up with market rates. Maybe Best Buy should higher fewer more qualified individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher more creative, innovative, and hard working managers instead of just riding on straight out of high school sales employees.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexible scheduling, co-workers, discount, cool store atmosphere, Geek Squad Culture!

    Cons

    long hours, understaffed, poor computer systems, compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a strategy and stick with it and fully invest in it. Geek Squad precincts across the country are in dire need of remodels and tools to correctly do their jobs (systems). Good Agent's don't get paid enough to stick around and we are constantly getting additional fulfillment services added to us. You're taking a premium brand and turning it into a problem center.
