Current Employee - Best Buy Sales Associate

I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The technology we sell is most up to date, Employee discount and benefits.

Cons

Leadership roles for women are too difficult to get, cash registers are ancient and difficult for full timers to reach 40 hours with the exception of holidays, when we are worked 17+ hours on Black Friday.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize loyalty or you'll get the good ones leaving the company for pennies more an hour and a couple extra hours per week. Don't judge your employees so hard on their inability to sell or convince customers of services that they really don't have the money to buy.

    Pros

    Very fun atmosphere

    Learn a lot about selling and communication

    Cons

    Managers make it feel commission orientated
    Most managers yell a lot when having a slow day
    Very low salary pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees more and motivate them to sell yelling does not make us happy to sell
    Keep employees actively involved by training when slow not yelling

    Pros

    If you are a business major and want to learn about the inner working of a major fortune 500 company then Best Buy is for you. They are forthcoming and transparent on how they run their entity.

    Cons

    It is a challenging environment as far as discrimination, inappropriate relationships and in certain locations women may find themselves not being valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment where women are comfortable and encouraged to grow professionally. Stop the social promotions.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
