    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really fun and easy work. As long as you have product knowledge, 70% of your job is to help customers with their tech needs, the other 30% is to sell all the add-ons Best Buy wants.

    Cons

    Management doesn’t reward good performance and corporate pretty frequently restructures the company, which often cuts positions and closes stores.

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

    Pros

    The leadership team at this particular store genuinely cares about our well-being. We have quite a lot of customers that come in and make our job worthwhile. They're kind and considerate. Working with electronics–with my department being Home Theater–can be a very fun job for someone who loves technology.

    Cons

    I've talked to a lot of my coworkers about management at other stores. According to them, the leadership team we have at our store is the best they've had. More often than not, the leaders at Best Buy overwork their employees and focus on numbers more than mental health. With all retail jobs, there are some customers that can ruin your entire day. I have–for the most part–had very kind customers who make me appreciate my job. You just have to be prepared to deal with upset customers and not take it personally.

    "Soul Crushing, Credit Card Driving, Customer Tricking Nightmare."

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Discounts on accessories were choice.

    Cons

    literally everything else. You were expected to stab each other in the back, sell things to customers they don't need, and straight up lie if it meant you could get them to fill out a credit card request. Hell, if they kept applying and killing their credit, great! More brownie points for you. It's a good springboard if you want to work for any of the companies represented in store at a retail level, but my god, it's not for people that care about their customers.
