    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, very outgoing, extremely helpful employees in every department. Competitive between departments but overall a great environment.

    Cons

    New GM is kind of an uptight person full of sarcasm. Some people will just delegate but not help with the clean up process at closing. Favoritism was a thing there. Danny the assistant store manager was amazing and extremely helpful. He was always up for helping out where he could honestly he was probably the best most respected manager in the store.

    Advice to Management

    If you are in a management position embrace the position and know that you are the one in charge not the employees under you no matter their length of employment with the company.
