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

    Pros

    Great environment to work in, ample room for promotion and training. Ability to quickly become a manager.

    Cons

    Sometimes Best Buy can be too pushy with the sales tactics or how many items a sales person has to offer to a customer. Just to check out can be a big hassle with the customer being bombarded with so many offers.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The employee benefits are great. Above average pay, 401K, inexpensive insurance, and the employee discount is wonderful.

    Cons

    The major concerns this company has is in it's hiring process for retail management. For a company who employs such amazing corporate employees, the store management is lacking. A lot of the stores I helped consult had good management, but there are so many horror stories of favoritism, nepotism, superiors having relationships with their employees. My store was no exception.

    Advice to Management

    To corporate management, focus on the details when hiring for retail management.

    Pros

    The work environment is interesting, you get to experience the technical side and the retail side of the process.

    Cons

    The negatives are that there isn't much room for one to progress through the company unless you plan on spending 15+ years at the same location.

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

    Pros

    The learning environment and customer service experience is invaluable. The employees are like a small family. An excellent retail experience. Bonuses come when your store hits!

    Cons

    Managers showing favoritism. Limited promotion opportunities. Rude customers. Technologically challenged clientele. Pressure to hit, sometimes unreasonably high, goals each and every day, both on the sales floor and in the operation side of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Try to treat your employers fairly. Reward good behaviors and numbers. Reprimand bad behaviors, habits, and numbers.
