Employer Summary

Paychecks are great, but that’s not all you get with a Best Buy career.

When you come to Best Buy for a career, we want your best. And we know you do your best work when you don’t have to worry about things outside of work. You know, the ‘what ifs’ in life.

Well, at Best Buy, you can relax.

Our full range of benefit options offer the protection you need today and in the future.

But that’s not all. We also have an excellent employee discount at our stores (so you can use all the super cool technology we sell), generous time-off programs, tuition and adoption assistance.

The specific benefits you receive will depend on your job function and where you work, but we think you’ll be pleased.

    Company match 401k (100% for the first 3%, then 50% for the next 2% coming to 4% match if you put 5% in). Employee Discount is 5% above cost so it varies from item to item but generally averages out to be pretty good.

    Best buy was a great learning experience for a young professional. It taught me a lot about retail and sales. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about going into sales.

    It is very helpful and considerate, Of the Glassdoor company to provide such great benefits for their employee's. "The Best thing about the benefit package is it Gives Employee's a since of appreciation, and Just goes to Truly show just how much the company really cares" .Benefits such as Retirement plans , Vacation paid time off, Free lunch and snacks, Apprenticeship program's,Tuition assistance , reduced and Flexible Hours and many more . Are all of Great assistance not only to myself but for co-workers as well. Together I feel as if its a great start to making the world a better place by providing the labor and the service and receiving the Benefits and or rewards there after." In life there can always be worst" so there e is really no worst thing about the benefits package . I am eager and I look forward to the Phenomenal benefits package.

    In my experience as an employee for Best Buy, I have learned that I am just a valueless set of 7 digits to the company. While the employee discount is wonderful and my co-workers (even the managers) are extremely approachable, the benefits are horrible, even for a part time job. I get 4 unpaid sick days per year. The first two absences (even when called in advance) will land you in the Administration office, where you will subsequently be interrogated as to why you were absent, and given warnings to not be sick again. This is a day at the beach compared to what happens the next time you are sick. As I phoned in a third time for a terrible cold I was having, I was told passive-aggressively to "try and find a way to get to work, and power through it" which I calmly decline to do. At this point, I was told how I will be "talked to" the next time I came into work, and instantly terminated If i was sick again. If nothing else, this policy cemented the idea in my head that my employment there is meaningless, and that I am as disposable as the tissues I blew my nose into.
