      Tons of in store politics, district level management and above couldn't care less about what's best for the employees, they treat everyone like commission salespeople despite not paying commissions, top performing stores are punished with unattainable goals the next year, favoritism rampant, benefits have been sliced to the bone for full time employees

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Employee discount, bonuses, and fun coworkers. I get to see many different products my friends and family have never heard of.

      Cons

      Stressful at times and upper management doesn't listen to their employees a majority of the time. There are times when I feel I don't have control over who is employed in my department or what hours they work when I may need them the most.

      Advice to Management

      Pay more attention to the little things and listen to your employees

      Current Employee - SWAT Specialist in Fairborn, OH
      Recommends
      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Autonomous, self-motivated position, that thrives on one's ability to multitask. The key role at every store that ensures a world class customer experience. Very rewarding. Great benefits. Great learning experience. Great Company.

      Cons

      The SWAT position is the counter balance to every transaction, transfer and receipt made within a store, which is a very daunting task due to human error. Limited growth if you're good in the role.

      Advice to Management

      There should be a mentorship program within the company to harvest talent.

      I have been working at Best Buy part-time

      Pros

      - Flexible schedule. You do need to give 2 weeks notice for a schedule change, but as long as you do this they will honor your schedule. It's also easy to trade shifts if you need time off too. - Employee discounts. We get some major discounts on electronics. It's amazing how cheaply we get cases and other gear with the discount. As a college student, this really helps me save money on my electronics purchases - Great...

      Cons

      - Forget holidays; you will get the actual day off, but forget traveling or actually going further than the town where your store is located because you will have to work the day after the holiday, the day before, or both days. - Little opportunity for advancement. At my store there are not many opportunities for career advancement; however, if you are a college student like me this won't bother you very much, but if...

      Advice to Management
