    Pros

    Fun environment, great management, decent pay. The employee discount is amazing on some items. Coworkers are usually like minded people.

    Cons

    None that I can really think of. Somewhat hard to move up. Very competitive work environment, but some people find competition fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to spur personal and social growth, as you meet many interesting customers and co-workers. You also learn about new technology and stay ahead of the curve, due to the constant influx of new products. The discount is also great on many items.

    Cons

    The leadership, both in-store and company-wide, shows a strong disconnect from what actually happens on the line-level. Corporate is often changing policies to better fit their agenda without thinking about how it will affect those of us that work on the store-level. The sales floor also often gets special treatment and benefits, that the rest of the store (warehouse, Geeksquad, and asset protection) aren't privy to.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closely to the floor-level employees as they are the ones who have to deal with the fallout caused by corporate-level and in-store management decisions. Also, do a better job encouraging the behind-the-scenes workers such as the warehouse team via the occasional nice remark, kick-back etc. The amount of micromanagement is also absolutely horrid in-store. Work on treating your employees like capable adults, until their behavior proves otherwise.

    Pros

    For me, the employee discount. Not sure if it's the same today as it was a few years ago, but if you love electronics it's a great place to work. My co-workers were good people too, that definitely made it enjoyable.

    Cons

    The morning meetings were a drag. Having to be there at 6:30am Saturday morning, usually once a month, was not fun. Granted, the managers tried to make it as painless as possible, because let's face it, I don't think they wanted to be there either. Meetings usually consisted of store performance review (numbers, data, etc...), employee awards, new product rollouts, training.

    Advice to Management

    Take care to recognize the hard work of your hourly workers.
