Open environment, networking is encouraged and does not seem to bother anyone

Annual reviews do not allow fair compensation increases
Still going through a rebuild phase which does not provide stability for anyone

Continue making strategic decisions that will grow the company with the least amount of negative impact to the employees and customers

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Warehouse conditions were much more pleasant than I expected. My co-workers and managers were all very friendly and welcoming. There was a genuine feeling of teamwork.

    Cons

    Only a few hired as seasonal temps were able to stay on permanently. I would have loved to stay, but wasn't chosen. This particular D.C. only operates on 1st shift outside the holiday rush.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your temps because they are working just as hard as the regular employees.
