    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hours can be flexible, fun environment, easy job, They don’t want to fire you so you get away with a lot, no one really holds you accountable for arriving late/other issues

    Cons

    Pay, you’d work hard dealing with tons of customers while you make pennies and bosses makes disproportionately high wages for less than a fraction of work, management is lazy and pretty uninformed or even uninterested about their job and your job for the most part, communication all around is lacking, everyone shares info within their own friend groups
