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

    Pros

    I was a customer service representative and the customers were tough but the culture and benefits are good enough to even it out. The discounts were great and there was plenty of room to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Management could be incompetent, especially when hired from outside. Compensation was not the best either, but that depends on your department.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire any managers that haven't worked for Best Buy before. They are always a mess and it makes employees looking for promotions angry.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is willing to help. Good work environment. Best Buy cares about their customers and it shows on coaching.

    Cons

    System issues happen from time to time, some more than others. Some people seem like a perfect fit for management, but are not given a shot. Corporate in MN has way more job opportunities, we are kind of left behind with just sales.

    Advice to Management

    So many amazing people who are willing to move up in this company and are not given a shot. The potential is easy to see, sometimes it seems to be based on metrics instead of metrics and someone's relationship with their peers.

  10. "Great once you master it"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You have tons of tools at your disposal to figure out answers. Fantastic culture within Geek Squad. Once you have built your team and set a rhythm and expectations you can have a lot of fun. Very transparent goals for entire company and great culture.

    Cons

    Shrinking resources, consolidation of roles, but I can honestly say this is what the company needs to do. It will always be tough until you put in a lot of time even then turnover can sometimes hurt since other retailers can sometimes pay more!

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with your employees and be real with your communication. It’s okay to be extra confident and optimistic but make sure you acknowledge things can be tough.
