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

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working at this company, it was great, and the friends you make quickly become family.

    Cons

    The HR center seems to not care about employees, and see you as just another number in their system.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and bonus incentives
    Great training programs to develop customer service and communication skills to help with later jobs
    Great job to further understanding of the business world
    Helps you develop the ability to multitask and prioritize

    Cons

    Management is always under high performance pressure and that pressure tends to fall hard on to the entire team as a whole
    There is an "unspoken" expectation to put in whatever hours are necessary to get the job done on or off the clock
    There is a lack of follow through in procedures starting at the top, but people are held accountable/terminated in lower level leadership to cover up for the lack of execution of plans
    Most leadership does not care about you as a person, you are just a dollar sign to them
    It is understandable that it is a business to run and you cant make decisions based on emotions, but they literally will tell you that you are replaceable and make you feel unvalued as a contributing member of the team

    Advice to Management

    Learn about your employees. Find out what is important to them in life and show them the value in what they are doing. People don't push for the company to make money, everyone is motivated by their own personal reasons so don't write them off the moment they give up. Also learn better time management and delegation processes to ensure you are not requiring your employees to put in so much unpaid overtime.

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

    Pros

    At this job you learn a lot. Wheather it's learning communications skills, leadership skills, or just basic selling skills, I would say this job is a good entry level job.

    Cons

    Even though this is a great job the compensation isn't much for what is asked of you. Not being a commission based job I believe the pay should be higher.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that management communicated with their employees in a nicer way or were there to advise employees on things other than work.

    If you want to move up in the company you have to kiss ass like no other. Management are extremely rude, and tend to be two faced.
