I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The Employee Discount and the Coworkers are the two Pros for this company. I'm not really complaining about the hourly salary either. Its more than some places, less than others. Overall a decent pay rate.

Cons

Management is sometimes incompetent and is not easy to work with. Was told they couldn't schedule me out of my availability (the only exceptions as that you can't request both Saturday and Sunday off) and I constantly got scheduled out of my availability. Also, was constantly micromanaged

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees and let them do their jobs. Do not micromanage.

    Great team members, however, all employees are over worked and under paid.

    The team I worked with was awesome, the company is very indecisive about major changes, lots of bad managers.

    Pros

    Awesome environment with other employees, cool products to work with all day, and in a couple of months you will be schooling everyone you know on electronics!

    Cons

    Lots of terrible management that a lot of the time only care about you "numbers" and performance. Which sadly, in return creates a impersonal experience with your leaders. Changes from corporate that trickle down in to stores a lot of the time feel "inaccurate" to what actually is going on and the changes usually don't fix or help to make the customers or employees experience better. Seems like corporate is out of touch with its stores. EXTREME lack of communication all across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees input more. LEARN HOW TO SCHEDULE! Finally, make accurate communication to employees on what is being said to you from your GM and DM! Stop hoping they figure it out on their own.
