    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discounts are pretty great and one of the very few reasons I'm still working there. I love the fact that I get to work with the latest electronics.

    Cons

    For a full timer that runs the warehouse, pay is a little low in my opinion. There is a constant issue with scheduling and hiring where the warehouse does not have enough people to work efficiently on truck nights, then we are asked why we don't finish in a timely fashion.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other better to ensure your employees aren't left high in dry by themselves, especially in the warehouse. Pay your full time employees a more competitive pay and treat them like human beings and not like chess pieces if you want to ensure they stay and the turnover rate won't be so bad.
