Certain positions are starved for employees, so it's easy to get hours and hard to get fired.
Very clique-y. Certain positions (especially cashiers) are segregated from the rest of the employees.
I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)
Overall, the company is fun to work for, they have a wonderful benefit package, fair perks, and a pretty solid 401k match. Generally, the environment is enjoyable and people are friendly.
I would say that the overall direction of the company as of late is downward. Middle management in the company is preventing any sort of growth, and the annual restructure limits it even further by temporarily displacing people and then relocating them to lateral level positions, new responsibilities and new employees. This constant state of change allows people in middle-upper management to stay busy until the next restructure, while not enabling growth for the company. You will find yourself satisfied with the current, but with little prospect for future development because of the companies inability to let go of old, no longer performing talent.
Advice to Management
Stagnant district and territory level positions should be a sign of a problem. Consistently moving people around and not permanently displacing them for lack of performance does not resolve problems. Giving unattainable goals to our shareholders is also problematic seemingly every time we release quarterly earnings. Publicly issues goals should be attainable, and not missed on the average by more than ten percent, it leads the public and shareholders to think that the end really is near.
