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

    Pros

    Ample excitement and competitive salary. I would work again in this brick and mortar electronics retailer and would tell others of its pros.

    Cons

    The retail industries erratic scheduling, high stress, and mandatory holiday work make, an otherwise perfect employer, more of a short-term career choice.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees more say in scheduling. Plus, rotations on holidays would also allow one to raise a family with such a retail position.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount, great work environment, and fast paced

    Cons

    You've got to be all over management if you want hours, accommodations, etc... Wish the discount would include Apple, and Consoles.

    Advice to Management

    Choose more wisely who you pick as department supervisors.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours with the right management, and a fun environment to show off incredible technology

    Cons

    Individual sales tracking leads to pressure and re-enforcing of ideals hour after hour every day can get old fast if you're not hitting your hourly goal.

    Advice to Management

    More control over managing our customer's deliveries and installs to guarantee quality and the best buy promise. lately things have shifted into a lower quality with the 3rd party delivery crew who don't know how to do their job and protect product... the bar has been lowered and i'm pretty sure it's going to make best buy figuratively trip over it and stumble back to where they were in 2011

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Almost no accountability, no one cares what you do, other than stealing, and calling in sick, management doesn't seem to care what people do when they are at work.

    Cons

    Pay doesn't go up, they don't care about education level, someone with a Master's Degree receives nothing more than someone with a high school diploma, advancement seems to be only for people without education

    Advice to Management

    Let the founder take the company private again

    Pros

    Best Buy can be a pretty fun place to work, with some pretty fun people to be around. The only good part was the fun ppl you work with, including the seniors/supervisors when they weren't on you about selling stuff(which eventually died down, then it just sucked) and the discount, which is sick on accessories.

    Cons

    However, in operations(cashier/customer service) you have to push stupid deals onto customer who don't want them and if you don't sell enough then you get in trouble and could get written up. So then you start doing everything you can to sell the crap, even if you don't tell the customer the whole truth about it. Then, if the dept at a whole isn't meeting quota, you have a meeting early on a Sunday morning where everyone has to show up and listen to the saaame b.s. we always hear about. "The supervisor could sell like crazy, they did it no problem, why can't you guys" blah blah blah.

    Advice to Management

    uhh..dont make people go to stupid meetings early sunday morning if they are doing well. and why can't you jump on a register and sell a magazine subscription once in a while.
