    Pros

    Employee discount, employees and management were amazing. Plenty of hours to go around. Super willing to work around my schedule.

    Low pay but thats typical in retail. Not always the most opportunities to move up.

    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.

    I have been working at Best Buy (More than 10 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Great work environment, decent pay, excellent discounts.

    Cons

    Excellent discounts, spend way too much! Raises are yearly and based on performance which can be out of your control at times.

    Advice to Management

    Add more incentives to promote better performance. Less focus on credit apps and more on customer satisfaction (can go hand in hand though).

    Great benefits for full time workers. Really wish there was better advancement opportunity I have worked there 5 years anday have fin ally reach a ceiling of advancement in my store.

    Very petty business practices. Really asked to do a lot for pay and if business is slow they kind of expect you to invent business.

    Pros

    Consistent communication, development, skill building, customer service experience. Bonus structure, promotion, friendly staff, great benefits, management appreciated feedback and opinions.

    My only complaint would be that the store is open 7 days per week for Very long hours, holiday hours,.

    The management teams I've worked with were great. Always communicating, listening and very understanding. I gained much experience during my time at Best Buy.

    Pros

    Great team environment, great college job, no/ low pressure sales, flexible hours, easy to make friends, dedicated to customer experience.

    Cons

    Not ideal for a mom or someone with young kids as hours, especially holiday, are very demanding. Management makes or breaks the experience which varies vastly from store to store. Bonus is now awarded based on entire store's performance instead of individual departments which is what it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    When a long term employee expresses that a potential management candidate is probably not a good match, listen.
