    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    full time benefits, managerial experience, training opportunities, employee accommodations, friendly environment

    Cons

    work all holidays and weekends, pressure to achieve targets, lack of community involvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage each employee individually. Working mostly with a work force age 18-24 everyone has different outlooks on life and different things going on every day. Get to know employees and find the style of management that helps them reach their potential.
