    Pros

    Management gave positive and constructive feedback without being negative or condescending and was encouraging in the way they coached you so that you could better serve customers and grow and improve as a team member at Best Buy.

    Cons

    Working long holiday hours

    Advice to Management

    Make sure not to show your favorites too much, it can really alienate your employees when they are suppose to work as a team, and sometimes you don’t even realize you’re showing it so just be sensitive to what you say and how you say it and who you say it to.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I enjoy the sales atmosphere, and speaking with customers everyday. The ability to use your own opinion to recommend is a good feeling.

    Cons

    I do not like the all over schedule, it would be nice if they were more structured. And the Lynchburg, virginia location is not a good place to work for. Poor management, poor hours, poor pay. All over a bad location.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Learn the standard operating procedures, get on one page and learn to treat your employees with respect, and maybe, just maybe, they will stay longer than they are now.
