Featured Review

Former Employee - Sales Associate

I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people are genuine and honest. The company pays fairly well for retail. The hours are flexible and understanding. There isn't a competition between you and your coworkers. They support you... getting your education.

Cons

The standard daily operating systems get messy. The nights can be hectic due to inventory. Holidays are always exhausting.

Advice to Management

Lead your people in ways they wouldn't expect to gain training from. No one wants to be forced to learn. Keep it inclusive and interactive to the best of your ability.

Current Employee - Team Lead

I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great place to work, They care about their employee a lot, very friendly ambiance. Great perks.

Cons

Physically tiring sometimes. Pay could be a little higher for the amount of work.
