    Pros

    the pay isn't bad, bonuses are good when you get them

    Cons

    Management sucks when we're slow. 3 customers in the entire store and 50 employees but they're constantly yelling at employees to find customers to sell to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't nitpick your best employees. Employees leave management, not companies.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, employee purchase program, great vacation, benifits, and a company that truly values their employees.

    Cons

    Retail hours, Stock Purchase program needs a face lift, and new employees get the same amount of vacation as a tenured employee

    Advice to Management

    Set a more structured interview process, interviewers need to go through a "How to interview program" remember they are the face of the company to potiential employees. I would have HR do final interviews with top internal and external candidates to guarentee a fair and unbaised interview process has been done.
