I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The managers at my store were very understanding and allowed for flexible schedules. They were great about teaching very good selling skills. They also promote from within.

Cons

During the holidays you were expected to give up every aspect of your life and work super long hours. The managers could get too familiar with the employees which made them bad at managing them.

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

    Pros

    Playing with cool gadgets as soon as they come out and helping people solve tech related problems or come up with cool ways for customers to enjoy technology.

    Cons

    Every year there is a restructure where you can end up losing your job, get your pay cut, or no matter how well you perform or high your annual review score is, you can be denied a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the employees before you lay them off. Losing your position and being of an extremely high rank within the company based on performance, while other stores who aren't ranked half as high as you get to keep their jobs seems counter intuitive as far as keeping the strongest employees in your possession and getting rid of the weakest links.
