    Pros

    Great Company overall. They have great benefits such as 401K, Potential Monthly/Quarterly bonuses, Health, Dental, Vision, Accommodations, Employee Discounts, Child Care, Tuition Reimbursement, and Some Paid Holidays. Depending on the store you go , you can make some life long relationships. Some managers go above and beyond for you and make you feel like a family.

    Cons

    HR informs General Managers directly with ALL information given. Some GMs are ethically terrible. They literally tell other leaders that "it doesn't matter" when someone goes to HR because HR just goes to them. Leaders even say that certain associates are moved to certain store or areas of the store "to get fired". Essentially, they are set up for failure. My former boss made statements about interviewees, yelled at associates in front of others, and would even cuss at us. It'd be different if you had someone on your side.

    Advice to Management

    Associates will work harder for you and willing to stay as long as you encourage them. Words of affirmation go a long way. Tearing someone down and being condescending will only cause high turnover.

    Pros

    Good benefits and open door policy

    Cons

    Worst communication between managers on providing updates. Also not giving employees the pay they desire for the work they do.

    Advice to Management

    Need to provide better training and teaching leaders how to communicate to their agents rather than the agents try to figure out what to do by themselves

    Best Buy is a great place for me to work for at because a lot of it is technology based and I’m told that I am pretty tech savvy.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Co workers I’ve kept relationships beyond

    Cons

    You very rarely saw any people of color move up in the company and also some of the racist jokes told in the “chalk talks” and stereotyping black customers by every 5 minutes asking to watch a different person. Looks more like a buddy system in place.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t know if there is hope for this company they are barely holding on. I would say however treat everyone equally and give everyone a real chance if they deserve a promotion.
