    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours. The tasks. No micromanagement. Helpful crew. If you need to work it's a start. The tasks are within reason but once hired there are things you start to notice as you work. If you have a strong work ethic you will get many tasks quickly because there are some very interesting characters working.

    Cons

    No training so you'll be the only one working a shift as a new hire and you nor the manager of the day will know how to address certain tasks. The hiring process. No healthcare for part-time. Not many full-time positions. No union and bold statements are made about it. No accountability. Big push for credit cards which is a desperate attempt to manage sustainability. As a tech retail company, you would expect the best technology but it's extremely dated.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Much more than just a number in each location I've been at (which is several), all upper management seems to notice issues and genuinely cares. Pay is decent, though compensation grows with more investment into company

    Cons

    Don't expect a quick career. Be prepared to put in a few years if you're looking to move into management. Possible to jump up quickly, but mot hiring is from internal. Need to be careful about pay.
