    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason any employee would give is the discount, even though it's not that great. It also provides many opportunities to advance and move up.

    Cons

    There is absolutely terrible communication between employees and management, at all levels. That problem directly leads to a complete disconnect between corporate, district and store levels.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money on hiring and training.

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

    Pros

    Working at Best Buy has been fulfilling at furthering my exceptional customer service abilities.

    Cons

    I think metrics are necessary to compete. However I believe customers sense business is more about metrics than service.

    Advice to Management

    Do not forget the human element while fighting for relevancy.
