    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.

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

    Pros

    Work was challenging and repair quotas were hard to get at times but co workers were great.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, poilitics. At times it came down to who you knew not you as an employee. the repair warehouse in chino, ca was shutdown and 300 were laid off so that best buy could save money after hyping us up for months telling us how great we were doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care more about the employees that put you where you are at now.
