    Pros

    A great place to work for anyone at any stage in their life. This place is accepting of all who seek employment and treat you like an individual. I would highly recommend (and have) to apply at BB . We have fun and the time flies by.

    Cons

    There is Nothing unexpected from retail . Management is terrific at keeping on top of any issues and resolving them quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work:) I truly am privileged to have become employed by BB.

    Pros

    Best Buy is the second company that I have worked for. I am 18 years old and started right after my 17th birthday. I could not ask for a better company to work for. They train to the best and will focus on the areas you struggle with. They give you the opportunity to move to different positions in the store and will train you through and through to make you perfect at your job. Leadership at Best Buy is absolutely amazing. Coming from a company that the leadership did not pay attention to you, help you with your areas of need, or help me balance my work and school schedule at Adidas, Best Buy is the complete opposite. The understand that school comes first then work. Not all management att all stores will be amazing but the leadership at store 1193 from the time I started to now is absolutely amazing. I could not be more thankful.

    Cons

    The layoffs that took place where such a disappointment because we lost some very good supervisors and managers.

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

    Pros

    Amazing Co workers, we had amazing managers before they got rid of them all, AMAZING discount, overall good company to work for, they make sure their employees are knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Mainly focused on numbers, little to no hours, bad managers, they throw you into a position.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire all the good managers and don't keep the ones who treat employees like they are stupid. I LOVED my job before my now only assistant manager made me hate going to work. You guys got rid of the only good managers. If you want to improve you business, fix your crappy managers and take back the good ones.

    Pros

    team work
    pay bonuses
    competitive
    educating
    discount
    it's non-commission but there are plenty of benefits. my favorite part about my job was the family relationship that was created within my department. everyone supports each other and works as a team and we always "have fun while being the best"

    Cons

    slow computer systems and long holiday hours

    Advice to Management

    spend more time getting to know your employees, not just the other leadership.
