    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

    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

        pay is decent, but still not enough to support

        Cons

        they're very quick to find reasons to fire people they don't like I have never worked for a company that was so all about using your vacation time for every little thing they are not flexible with scheduling you are constantly being watched and micro managed you can get fired for having your phone, while all the managers are constantly on their phones they expect you to work overtime they use the most complicated/outdated...

        stop treating employees like theyre high school students don't get so mad when someone puts in their 2 weeks stop with the favoritism you need to understand that peoples lives don't just shut off because they're at work, we all have families and we cannot control when they need us

        I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        there are tons of people that have been working for best buy for 5+ years which I find amazing. The discount at 5% above cost was great until best buy realized they had to cut their prices to compete. Their concessions from vendors are awesome.

        Cons

        The dress code is a little dated, upward mobility is lacking, they do not offer mobile store jobs anymore.

        I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        There are a lot of pros that I have liked so far, and continue to benefit over: -Employee discount is very beneficial -Flexible schedule with students -Military friendly workplace -Lots of online and on site training. Always kept up to date.

        Cons

        With this being retail, there are certain negative traits with best buy: -Customers. People sometimes come in and dehuminize or harass employees. Management might have to remove people on a regular. -Sales oriented. Numbers are pushed to a point where an employee's job may be at risk. This is an hourly job, not comission. -On hand items: Customers may get mad and a lot of times we may not have items that...
