    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Build long lasting friendships with co-workers. Friendly environment. Expand knowledge on a fast growing tech industry.

    Cons

    Very highly detailed work. Difficult to multitask during busy holiday hours.

    Advice to Management

    Make your store feel like they are there to reach a goal together not individualistically. Too much emphasis on BB cards & daily $$ goals can make workers grumpy & pushy to customers.

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

    Pros

    Best Buy is by far one of the best companies to work for. Great pay, great discount, amazing benefits for part time and full time employees. Best Buy really cares about their employees and wants them to excel.

    Cons

    Every store is different. Management needs to stop favoring certain employees. Favoritism is strong in certain Best Buy stores. They threaten to fire someone who calls off 3 times in 1 month due to being sick. But another associate can call off twice a week for 2 months straight with no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Management should not show favoritism towards employees and treat everyone the same.
