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

      Pros

      In my many years at Best Buy, I've been amazed at the caliber of people with whom I work. Team members bring an enormous amount of passion to the work they do, and Best Buy leadership shows it cares for its employees through good pay and benefits - and continual review so that we can do our best to deliver an excellent employee experience.

      Cons

      Super fast-paced and can be overwhelming at times - but if you focus, have a willingness to learn and contribute, and can find the ability to enjoy the ride, you'll be here as long as I have - or longer! I'm truly grateful.

      Advice to Management

      Pay attention to your employees' bandwidth and energy - and your own. We're all driving to great outcomes, but need space to breathe.

      Former Employee - Computer Sales Consultant in Oakdale, MN
      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

      The discount was amazing and I bought way too many things when I worked there. Also, Best Buy does a lot of internal promotions.

      Cons

      Some of the coworkers were rude, and management was unintelligent.

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

      Pros

      You get to work indoors!

      Cons

      Everything else. Horrible working conditions re: management and other workers watching you, waiting for you to make an error. Very Clique-y. Managers don't want to do their jobs, will tell employees to say that they are managers on the phone to customers. Punching out to use the bathroom. A coffee cup icon is used to show that you are not on the phone! Why not just use a person sleeping? The whole culture of this department...

      Advice to Management

      What an awful way to treat people. I can't believe that I stayed as long as I did. Talk about "Big Brother"! I am embarrassed as a Minnesotan that this company is head quartered here. Just say NO to Best Buy, both as a customer or an employee. They are shady both ways.

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

      Pros

      I like that it was fast paced business where things are always moving. Co workers were nice and easy to get along with. Some leadership were really welcoming and nice as well.

      Cons

      Hassle to get days off. Most of Leadership is not welcoming and give off a very uncomfortable vibe. You either fit their little "squad" or didn't and if you did not it was a horrible place to work.

      Advice to Management

      Please try and make your workers feel more comfortable.
