    Pros

    Discount, positive, looks good on a resume, training, experience for future jobs in sales, good costumer base for the most part

    Cons

    I had major issues with management, I had issues with sexual harassment, I was promised so much but never given anything that was promised, I spoke with someone about the problems I was having and she told me to suck it up but it was her job to address it anonymously but instead told people, favouritism was a serious issue.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and take action in serious situations

    Pros

    Best buy is a good company, the best part of Best Buy is the great people. Best Buy is very flexible with almost everything.

    The down falls to Best buy is that the people that move up aren't alway the best for the job, it's more about who's friends with the right person.
