    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Two Caribous in the corporate headquarters

    People will run you over for a Caribou. No promotions, layoffs frequent, empty qubes all over the buildings they still occupy.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.

    I worked at Best Buy for more than a year

    Pros

    Cool internship with cutting edge tech. Supportive staff, and an incredible project. Gave real work that would be used in production! Has the opportunity for post internship full time job offers.

    Cons

    As an intern, there are no downsides to a job like this. Best Buy is still transitioning from a hired contractor to a full time tech employee company. It's a good time to get into their Ecommerce department.

    Advice to Management

    Continue this internship program! It has received only positive reviews from everyone that took part in it.

    Current Employee - Senior Storage Engineer in Richfield, MN
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Always something happening. Always something broken, and hence you will have something to fix!! Active 24x7x365

    Cons

    Screwed if you are a contractor, especially if you are going through a 3rd party Asian firm. Watch how many hours you work, or, if you work more, then make sure you get paid for the same.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, and learn. There is a reason why Amazon and other companies are growing while Best Buy is not.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The salary is not too bad, although it is not very good. Employee shopping discount.

    Cons

    Most of the management is Indian, and they tend to promote or help employees who are both Indians. Asians, especially Chinese, will find it harder to get help. Unfair treatment will occur.

    Advice to Management

    If you still hire someone just because they are Indian, but don't have any skills (do not object to hiring Indians, but hope they are capable of hiring). Your company will only go downhill in the future
