    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun
    Knowledge
    Brand
    Company is good and fun when you have a good team and management that doesn't breathe down your back. If your team is stuck up, loud, not customer friendly then you'll have a bad experience.
    Working with a good team will bring you guys jokes, fun times, and less stress.

    Cons

    Management
    Pay
    Unorganized
    Time Consuming

    Management is always micromanaging all associates. Moving up in the company is all based on politics. If you don't suck up to management then goodluckk getting a full time or supervisor spot. Long days at times but having a good team will make it seem fast paced.
    Some stores are very unorganized since most associates are lazy. Pay is good if you're in school but not good to make a career out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Less Micro Managing
    Respect Associates
    Better Pay
