    Decent company. Good benefits. CEO is out spoken about current events. They have an Employee Assistance program.

    Cons

    Trainings are all online. Majority of leadership at store level are corrupt. HR department is unresponsive. No one makes sure you’re being developed. If the gm isn’t doing it, your out of luck.

    Pros

    With the right mentor in your department you can really learn alot. This company is always encouraging you to learn so it is an absolute perfect match for me.

    Cons

    The annoying hazing program, aka getting your blue shirt, which is just Best Buy's hazing program to make you feel like a noob for 2 months at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the hazing, but besides that great job!
