    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employee discounts!!! Most of the sales people are extremely nice and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Everything else about the job. No one cares about anyone but themselves. If you have a problem and take it to someone you think you trust, it gets taken elsewhere, then everyone knows. Upper management are sexist. The list goes on.

    Advice to Management

    The advice is to corporate. Talk more to the little people. Your not getting all the information that is there. Your only getting what you want to hear from people who are kissing your butts to make themselves and their own paychecks!

    Pros

    Better pay than most retail stores

    Cons

    Incompetent managers. After going through the process of hiring (agreeing to background check, drug test, etc), I sat and waited for them to call me to let me know when I would be joining the team. They called me at 8:45am on a Sunday and said "you start today at 10am." No joke. They hadn't even told me yet what I needed to buy for my uniform yet. Who in their right minds gives just over an hour's notice that they are expected to report to work when they have heard NOTHING for almost two weeks???

    Advice to Management

    Give people more than an hour's notice when you want someone to work. Also, don't let an incompetent person run things when it comes to hiring new people. I will actively dissuade people as best I can to not work for you.
