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

    Pros

    Nothing, really. I guess the pay is okay for retail, if they like you and you’re buddies with the managers.

    Cons

    Managers play favorites, take part in all the drama, lie to your face. Not one “manager” over 26 years old.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, most of the time you are out on the road in clients homes and not tied down in a store. Great employee discount.

    Cons

    Multiple managers that act as if they are your boss. Actual boss is located hundreds of miles away and has very little contact, except when you do something wrong. Very little praise given.
