    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you love consumer electronics and don't mind working weekends and nights, Best Buy is the place for you. The atmosphere is VERY competitive. Despite not being on commission, all employee sales are tracked. If you have a great positive attitude and are willing to put in a ton of hours than promoting is possible.

    Cons

    As with most retailers, be prepared to give up practically weekends and most of your evenings. As an assistant manager I was paid quite well, but typically worked a 11+ hour workday. Also during the winter months, expect to work up to 6 days a week and average 12 hours+ a day. Sales managers do not typically work mornings, so all of your evenings and weekends are spent there. I loved the constant change and all of my employees, but I didn't get any time with family during the holidays. If you have poor performance for than two straight quarters, expect A LOT of pressure to get better or get out. Not a position for the weak personality.

    Advice to Management

    I lost my job (as did 2,000 others) during the last restructure. 12 years of experience didn't matter much. While financially I understand why the cuts were made, I certainly believe there has been a reduction in knowledge and experience throughout the company. Next time there is a major restructure please do not force your employees work an extra month knowing they won't have a job. That was truly torturous.
