    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    BestBuy has amazing leadership, from Hubert Joly all the way down to the GMs. I've never once felt like I couldn't talk to a leader at any level, unlike other companies' cultures. The company has prided itself on Expert Service, and is continuing forward with plans to provide a better customer experience. If you work hard, there is plenty of opportunity to move up in the company, and resources are even provided for you...

    Cons

    Scheduled weekends and odd hours, say goodbye to spending most holidays at home. Thus is the life of a retail associate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push towards a better Blue! We can absolutely maintain excellence and drive less-than-stellar locations to improve.

        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Best Buy

        Pros

        Outstanding atmosphere to work in and the give employees reason to be successful

        Cons

        It can be a bit challenging moving up the ladder within the store as they like to bring up people from other stores or districts

        Advice to Management

        Make sure you listen to your employees thoroughly

        Disapproves of CEO

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

        Pros

        Frequent Breaks and a good manager/supervisor to individual sales associate relationship (for the most part). The hours are reasonable and fit your schedule well. They have a break room that has tons of amenities that are helpful for recharging.

        Cons

        The customer base is not very technically informed, so generally you will need to dumb down your explanations especially if you work in tech sales. The sales goals for my store were $8,000 a day, which wasn't a problem on most days because I worked in the computer sales department. The goal can feel daunting and if you have a slow day or the system fails to catalog your sales then you might get a talking to by management.

        Advice to Management

        Understand that the sales goal is good but needs to account for the fact that customer levels are variable and therefore cannot always be met.

        I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Rarely a boring job, and you learn a ton about everything technology. I believe working at Best Buy is a make or break based on location and your fellow employees. Management is huge, if you have a good manager and you like who you work with, it can be fun, fast paced and the day can fly. The reverse is also true. Pay is ok for entry level positions as a full time associate. Below industry standard because of no commission....

        Cons

        Working for Best Buy is all about location. If your store management is bad, the experience will be bad. You will get tough customers anywhere you go, some places more than others, but it really comes down to who you work with. So the experience can vary greatly, store to store. Micro management was irritating at times, like I said, depends on management. Scheduling can be a bit scattered, and call offs were frustrating....
