    Pros

    BestBuy has amazing leadership, from Hubert Joly all the way down to the GMs. I've never once felt like I couldn't talk to a leader at any level, unlike other companies' cultures. The company has prided itself on Expert Service, and is continuing forward with plans to provide a better customer experience. If you work hard, there is plenty of opportunity to move up in the company, and resources are even provided for you to learn new roles that you want to apply for. Recently announced the number 1 company for sustainability in the country!

    Cons

    Scheduled weekends and odd hours, say goodbye to spending most holidays at home. Thus is the life of a retail associate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push towards a better Blue! We can absolutely maintain excellence and drive less-than-stellar locations to improve.
