    Management, culture, pay. Job position for asset protection is a joke. The deference method to stop theft does not work the MAJORITY of the time and standing or being in just one spot is horrible

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Decent pay. Nice perks. Good team environment depending on location.

    Cons

    No way to ensure a transfer. I moved out of state under the impression that I had a job waiting for me in my new city. Boy was I wrong. I went through the interview process being treated as if I had never worked for the company before. The managers in my new city were horrible at communication and I had to reach out to them at every step of the process. I never even heard back from any of the stores I was looking at transferring to.
