Pros

Hires store employees right out of college for entry level roles Many career paths available, you can easily switch from different capabilities across the company Great discount and benefits Flexible scheduling Open environment, networking is encouraged and does not seem to bother anyone

Cons

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

Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Line level associates will always have a job and it is not pressured commission sales. Very good first or second job company.

    Cons

    The lead supervisor or manager roles are constantly getting eliminated and downsized. This is not a company for someone who wants longevity any more.

    Advice to Management

    stability is not there they are changing for the online market but leaving the stores behind and not caring about the customer base that made best buy big in the first place.

    Pros

    Employee discount is amazing, had a handful of fun people to work with. Often got free stuff from vendors and from contests.

    Cons

    Leadership is out of touch with reality, sales practices were impractical, district and corporate managers could care less about you. Too much to count.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more! So many hard working folks that are paid poorly despite huge product knowledge. Often lost great employees because of overworking.
