I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Decent pay, great discount, great employees

Cons

Expensive health insurance, a lot of redundancy with leadership, lack of focus, management is too busy flirting with the cashiers and going out drinking than running their business. A lot of failure is considered "opportunity" they never get rid of the managers that check out mentally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Know your leaders. Talk to your line level employees. Your leadership or lack there of is killing your business.

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

    Pros

    Working with all the department exposes you to different technologies.
    Retail experience was eye opening.

    Cons

    managers care more about the sale and pushing the "black tie" than the actual customer experience. realize the job is not service but rather retail, you will have to push items and try to up sell customers.
