    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Amazing discount on most products, fairly laid back and fun working atmosphere, and the company as a whole has great values and benefits for employees

    Cons

    Vegas market shows a lot of favoritism so if you want to move up, you better know somebody. I was with the company for 10+ years and never did I have a problem moving up or feeling like I mattered as an employee or person until I worked in the Las Vegas market. The pay was fair but performance reviews and raises were like pulling teeth.

  5. Fun and Great if you have the right manager.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Leadership is there, benefits are alright and the discounts are what really help staying here. Some of the managers are open to associates moving around to different areas such as an employee going from computers to mobile. From time to time they even give out movies tickets, event tickets and raffle away some nice things to employees.

    Cons

    Depending on who you get as a manager, work hours kind of suck. Managers seem to give employees more hours depending on who they like more, rather than who sells better and or has a better customer relationship. I remember being top 3 in sales and having people return just to see me, yet I was getting less hours than most full time employees in the store and my area.

    Advice to Management

    Management should really look more closely at who they bring in as leaders. Most were great but I personally had a very bad one. He was one of the main reasons I quit and moved on despite compliments and praise. Another thing would be to stop making associates follow a script. Nobody likes being talked to like a robot. I would go off script and talk to customers as people and friends. Much more effective than the checklist...

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Benefits, employees/coworkers, training programs, bonus structure (heard it was veing revised though).

    Regular restructures makes it difficult for advancement/job security.

  7. Great Employees but Terrible Management

      I worked at Best Buy part-time

      Pros

      The employees are so welcoming, and you really feel as though you're part of a family. As a part-timer, if you ask for more hours they'll give you more hours. Great employee discounts.

      Cons

      Hours: If you're hired as a part-timer and you ask for more hours, they'll work you full-time hours but will make you keep part-time benefits... unless a full-time spot opens... and you apply for it... and you interview for it... and you get it. And they'll schedule you as they please. For example, they put me down for 8 days straight by scheduling me the last four days of the last week of a pay period, and the first...

      Advice to Management

      Stick to a single policy. Some managers will allow customers to get away with returns/exchanges out of policy while others are strict about it. If an employee firmly tells a customer they can not return something and the customer asks to speak to a manager who lets them do it, you make your employees look like the bad guys for saying no while the managers look like the heroes. Follow the law. If the law states that...

      Pros

      Depending on department, working with product is exciting. The pay is very competitive, and the employee discount is great. The company invests in their employees with monthly trainings and a two week course to teach selling skills.

      Cons

      Holidays can be hectic and depending on location, the store may be understaffed

      Advice to Management

      Continue to train employees and keep doing what you are doing. Try to prevent favoritism and Crack down on idle chatting employees.
