    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company places a strong emphasis on the employee experience and provides a wide variety of tools and training for the employees to succeed. There's a lot of great technology to experience and learn about while also getting an incredible discount on purchases as well.

    Cons

    Promotions in the stores is basically a waiting game, and it can be especially hard to get into a leadership role at a store that performs well.

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

    Pros

    Job is easy. Anyone can do this job.

    Cons

    Interview process will never gain great employees. They don't retain talent.
    No Diversity In Omaha Locations. Very trashy benefits. Walmart has better benefits... they don't like people of color. Omaha location

    Advice to Management

    Just work at the Apple Store. Wait they are not smart enough. Most leaders here just stand around thinking they know stuff.

    Make learning fun. Try creating a culture. Join LGBT events in the city. Quit only hiring white people.... Diversity bring in sales.

    Pros

    Great opportunities if you get good managers and a great company culture that strives to put employees first definitely great for college and high school job.

    Cons

    A lot of managers go unchecked and employees leave due to lazy managers who are allowed to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Quit sitting in the office and get out on the floor with your employees to help them feel that you are as invested as they are in the company!

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

    Pros

    Can be a really fun workplace. Management is very responsive of good work, you are often recognized. You gain a ton of knowledge about technology.

    Cons

    They push and push sales, credit cards, Geek squad. Can be very stressful trying to meet lots of unattainable goals. Daily performance tracking and monthly reviews can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push so many different goals. Don't encourage salespeople to sell products they don't think the customer needs. It should be about meeting the customer's needs.

    Pros

    Fun people and a great atmosphere to thrive in and have a good time while being a little laid back.

    Cons

    Numbers are extremely too important for a non commission positon and you will be talked to a lot about your performance. Even several times daily.

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

    Pros

    Good company, treats employees well, retail is struggling but they are doing their best to take care of all employees. Would definitely recommend.

    Cons

    Hours are not always consistent. A few managers are not qualified and let the power go to their head. Obsession with shrink gets old.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within the company. The managers that are home grown are way better than the ones outside. Also, remind managers that this job is a second gig for a lot of people who make a lot more cash at their regular job than the managers do.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Best Buy offers a great employee discount on products in store and on their website. They also offer incentives to continue sales training.

    Cons

    Best Buy has sales quotas they expect you to meet. Depending on who your supervisor or manager is, they might be very demanding in this regard. They make bonuses based on their team meeting or exceeding sales quotas.

    Pros

    Work environment is good, discount is great, pay is good for what you actually do, management is actually helpful if not "meeting goals"

    Cons

    Hours can vary for part time, no benefits for part time, monthly goals can be unrealistic some months, commission behavior even though you're not on commission

    Advice to Management

    Part time benefits would be great
