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

    Pros

    Coworkers are normally fun to be with and are like family for the most part. We all struggle together especially during the holidays.

    Cons

    High expectations without incentive. It was always clear that opinions were not welcome. Management was almost never helpful. Most of the time it was almost impossible to get a manager to help out.

    Advice to Management

    Lift up your employees.

    Pros

    Decent employee discount. That's about it. Everything else about this company sucks. Literally everything else. Do not work here. Period.

    Cons

    Absolutely everything. The software this company uses is outdated, slow, and inefficient, nobody, especially management has any idea what they're doing, the company will go so far out of their way to screw over their employees it is astonishing.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your you-know-whats.
