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

    Pros

    Best buy when I was working there (from 2013-jan2017) was a great company to work for. Great pay for a beginner's job and friendly workplace.

    Cons

    Best buy has made some changes that have made the workplace worse, less friendly, and less of a place you'd want to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old best buy style.
