    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very fast-paced environment but a lot of good support from the team. Co-workers at the time were amazing, and the manager was the best. I learned a ton and every day was different. The employee discount is great.

    Cons

    So fast-paced that you're constantly rushing around. Frequent call-outs from less-reliable employees meant that we were frequently understaffed and we'd end up working longer hours- a good paycheck but exhausting. Schedules are all over the place, meaning they schedule you wherever they need someone- open, mid, or close- and it's never consistent. Most retail positions are like this but like I said, frequent call-outs means that it was often the case I'd be scheduled off at 6pm, end up working until 10 or 11pm, and then be required to come back in at 8am. Felt like I was always at work.

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

    Pros

    Once you learn the store plano (layout), it does not require much thought and is relatively simple as you unload trucks and stock the inventory on the store floor.

    Cons

    The management gets noticeably upset when workers use restroom or go on lunch break after their shift when they are asked to stay past scheduled time.
