I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

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

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy helping customers find what they need without having to make a second trip.

    Cons

    The company acts like they care about other things than attaching their protection plans, but in reality if you work there you'll realize the truth. I've even heard supervisors tell employees it's ok to sell the customer a cheaper product (even if it doesn't fit their needs), so they can afford the extended "warranty." If you have morals, I would work elsewhere.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (Less than a 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 Management

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