    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.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy

    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.

  10. "Easy job but I would strongly advise to not ever work for this company read below the facts as to why I advise not to."

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

    Pros

    Laid back environment, freedom to move departments within 3 months, simple tasks, not to much to worry about, customers left happy most of the time.

    Cons

    This is to make you understand the experience I had while working for this company. System interface would change only for worse causing the entire store to shut down and close. Me and my co workers were consistently harassed by our assistant manager. Constantly brought it up to general management and corporate and nothing would change. Company promoted me to warehouse position and increased my pay as well... Within a month I had that taken away from me as well as a decrease in salary with it. Strong lack in management it seems as if managers only worry about their department rather then the entire store.
