The 2nd best retail company to work for.

Department Supervisor (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Best Buy

ProsIf you're looking for:
money as a student.
a retail career that promotes performance.
a great employee discount
flexible schedules
great benefits

ConsInconsistent performance management
Non commission sales
Pay grades for line level associates
Broken Communication - By the time the message gets to you, it's a totally different vision than what the CEO stated. Last minute notifications or no notifications at all. Hardly see anything planned out well on a store level. (I don't mean all stores...but alot of them)

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't announce it when you're doing visits to stores. Do it randomly so you can get a true vision of how your businesses are running. That's the only way you're going to move from last min district visit preps until 1am to consistent non-negotiables.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
