    Former Employee - Inventory Specialist in Houston, TX

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great experience for any retail, the benefits and discounts, sometimes its solo and laid back.

    Cons

    The hours can be long when doing inventory trucks.

    Advice to Management

    More consistent times for truck being done rather than being done so late.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Seeks to treat employees as humans and offers opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    You have to be aggressive with your personal development. To a point this can be good but there needs to be more accountability in place for leadership to seek ways to push you grow. This isn’t just a monthly review . Growing is not always doing better on the numbers the next month and that seems to always be the focus.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your self to set strategic yet aggressive goals to not see your top 4 talented employees work in the same role more than a year.

    Money is their main focus, they don’t care if you’re sick or have an emergency come up. Working on thanksgiving is actually a sin. Stressful to meet rev goals. Takes a long time to move up.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Constant Training, friendly atmosphere, informed on current sales trends.

    Cons

    Forced to try to get people to buy their credit cards, even if they don't need one. You are supposed to fill a quota with those where you either give them the credit card or at least run their information to see if they qualify, which can hurt their credit score if they aren't interested.

    Advice to Management

    Less Credit Card apps, then it would be a great place to work.
