    Micromanaging kills moral and makes great employees leave

    Pros

    Flexible Scheduling when you're at school or a parent Fun talking to customers

    The upper management are too strict Must work weekends Long black Friday hours

    Stop being so strict. The "promo zone" does not work when no one is talking to you in the promo zone.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great discount, coworkers can be great.

    Cons

    Management thinks they're the best thing since sliced break, and working with people always has varying levels of frustration depending on your patience.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with your employees. In my 3 years at Best Buy, 1, maybe 2, managers have really tried hard to connect with the employees and make us feel like we were vital to the machine that is Best Buy.
