    Pros

    The supervisors and upper management were very personal and understanding when it came to working together as fellow employees as well as them overseeing you as their employee.

    Cons

    Working in small cubicles are not meant for everyone. It was difficult to concentrate on the tasks at hand while trying to not focus on the variety of noises and disruptions around.

    Advice to Management

    I would sugges that this company not outsourced their work to different countries and to make sure that they employed Americans in America.

    Pros

    The pay is nice for the actual work they make you do.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is not good. Rarely do I ever get two days off in a row. And nearly never have a weekend off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't belittle the employee in front of the customer just to make management look good, it just makes the company look bad as a whole.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with great technology and people. Employee purchase plans are second to none. Always a fast paced place floor and exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Management micromanages above and beyond what is necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that employees are more than warm bodies. They have the best "seat in the house" to give great feedback on how to best make changes to better serve the business and employees.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The other associates were great to work with. Location was close to home. For the most part, the customers were fun to deal with

    Cons

    Wanted full time, was given part time after being told no full time was available. 2 weeks later, they hired someone on full time. After getting 34hrs/week during the holiday season, was cut to 15hrs/week. High turnover in area management.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At a corperate level BB really seems to have its employees best interests in mind.

    Cons

    On a store level all the managers are ever concerned about is today's numbers and shoving unwanted product down peoples throats.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue on what customers really want. Most don't want to be asked for the 50th time whether they need help, or be badgered into buying extended warranties and geek squad services.
