    Pros

    The management is fantastic. They listen to their employees, frequently praise them for good work, and give promotions to people who deserve them. Getting time off is fair as long as you speak with a manager. The discount is great, there are tons of opportunities for growth, and they make retail better than it usually is.

    Cons

    Retail is always difficult so it is annoying to have to work on holidays and during the holiday season, but that is not Best Buy's fault. Communication from corporate can be weak sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Please update our in-store systems. Best Buy is the largest consumer electronics store in the world. The computers and technology we use in the store should be top-notch.
