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

Pros

Decent pay, good discount, amazing coworkers, not an entirely strict / rigid work environment, personable managers who are willing to listen to your scheduling needs / concerns, not strict about tattoos and piercings (a lot of this might vary from store to store however)

Cons

Horribly rude and demanding customers, declining hours during non-holiday season, very high pressure during holiday season, re-org got rid of some great managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please figure out a proper business model and actually care about your employees, like you claim.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    -Really good employee discounts, especially on cables.
    -You don't have to figure out what to wear to work everyday.

    Cons

    -Company seems to be on the decline.
    -CEO promised not to work employees on Thanksgiving or have greatly expanded holiday hours and turned around and did just that (2013).
    -Salary is mediocre, at best.
    -Little room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give employees a reason to stay on board, rather than just see the job as a stepping stone to another job elsewhere.

    No opinion of CEO
