    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    If you love people, this is a great place to work. The pay is pretty good for a retail job, and the environment is always pretty exciting. there is tons of new gadgets and tech to go around. So anyone into computers, phones, or TV's should have a blast.

    Cons

    Some of the management can be a little hard to get along with, and moving up in the company can get tough because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to employee suggestions and ideas . Also take to consider the good that is going on in the store rather than the bad

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee discount. When I was there it was cost plus five percent. This could be a significant discount depending on the item, especially store brand stuff.

    Cons

    Very little product knowledge training. What was given were simply glorified ads provided by the manufacturers. Unless you are already knowledgeable on a particular subject, you're ill-equipped to answer questions.

    Advice to Management

    More and better quality training.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great Salary, limited carrer growth in th current landscape of the company, has rebounded well from the position the company was in just a few short years ago

    Cons

    Reduced Leadership causes problems in a growing enviroment of resposibilities, they are often piling on additional requirements without supporting the labor model to accomplish the goals at hand

    Advice to Management

    Add labor back to the stores, and secondary leadership positions, in the smaller stores the requirements are become more and more unrealistic

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay. Decent bonus structure. Things change up fairly often so you don't get bored easily and keeps you on your toes

    Cons

    Not really built for growth/development now. Built for sustainability, so there is a short ceiling for promotion compared to previous setup prior to the last reorg.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on what got the brand to its pinnacle, while still respecting the need to adapt. You have to come into leadership roles ready made now already knowing it all, which doesn't provide encouragement for someone looking to build from the ground up

  10. "Customer Specialist"
