    Great Job, good flexibility. The work you put in at Best Buy is what you get out of it. I've been working there for 2 years at Geek Squad as a Consultation Agent, I was able to become one of the best in the whole So-Cal market, pay increase and awards.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the few retailers that is successfully staying afloat against amazon. Phenomenal discounts. Company culture is positive

    Cons

    Depending on your region, the mid level management is terrible. My store in particular pushed out their most talented people through immature management techniques.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better General Managers who you can trust will help you get buy in from your employees instead of crushing them with a elitist mentality.
