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

    Pros

    Its like a family. I love it. They are very flexible and they are not like other sales companies that are way too pushy.

    Cons

    Dont really have anything bad to say about the company just a few employees that are lazy but that is just at my specific location

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    Really good benefits if you're full time. Awesome employee discounts. GM at my store keeps things fun with cookouts or contests. Usually get acknowledged for doing well/ going above and beyond.

    Cons

    Pay starts out not much better than most places but there's a lot of room to move up. Unless you're full time there's not a lot of hours or incentives to "go above and beyond".

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you care and acknowledge when they're doing well. You can't get us raises all the time but sometimes a "good job" goes a long way. Keep your employees happy and they'll keep your customers happy!

    Great Benefits and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    They don't care to highly on the amount of work you put in. They always want more. They are not loyal.

    Be more fair and lead by example.

    Pros

    There are decent opportunities to grow while working here. The pay is not great, but it could be worse. Your hours really depend on your ability to get your job done and to be profitable.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay enough. Absolutely no overtime is allowed unless there is some extreme emergency. Benefits are only good if you can afford to pay a LOT of money.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more. The "profit sharing" is such a small amount when you are a line level employee that it is disheartening.

    Pros

    Opportunities aboud if you look for them. They wont be handed to you. Expect to do some politicking.

    Cons

    Store unrealistic goals for revenues.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with the blue crew and hear their voice or their side of the story.
