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

Pros

Fast paced culture with enthusiastic people. They encouraged bold activity, plus everyone likes to get discounts on the latest electronics.

Cons

Focused on the numbers instead of the people, which is why they are falling by the wayside as Internet based companies like Amazon are continuing in their success.

Negative Outlook

    Pros

    You will make friends for life. Great first job where you will learn a lot of skills in this job that will help you in future careers. Plus the discount isn't too shabby either.

    Cons

    You won't move up unless you are a favorite. There is not as much growth in this company for employees as there once was previously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are valuable to your company. They put in effort everyday to be the best they can for you.
