    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fun work environment and great coworkers. Sales floor is fast paced and busy. Associates aren't paid on commission but expect high pressure sales targets to hit each month.

    Cons

    Hard work is rarely rewarded and expectations are high. Getting promoted is based off of performance and politicing with management. If you want to move up you have to be a yes man and just do what is asked of you.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits for full time employees

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant within Best Buy, I’ve worked in several locations and they’re all the same. It doesn’t matter how good you are at your job, or how hard you work, as long as you’re buddy buddy with the right people. They continue to cut lead positions, making advancement even tougher. Maybe they were good to work for at one point, but definitely not anymore.

    Working for a great company. They give great benefits only if you are full time. Management is always great. Never any major problems

    Cons

    The pay scale is a little off. They should offer all benefits to every employee part time and full time.
