    Pros

    the pay isn't bad, bonuses are good when you get them

    Cons

    Management sucks when we're slow. 3 customers in the entire store and 50 employees but they're constantly yelling at employees to find customers to sell to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't nitpick your best employees. Employees leave management, not companies.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best Buy is by far one of the best companies to work for. Great pay, great discount, amazing benefits for part time and full time employees. Best Buy really cares about their employees and wants them to excel.

    Cons

    Every store is different. Management needs to stop favoring certain employees. Favoritism is strong in certain Best Buy stores. They threaten to fire someone who calls off 3 times in 1 month due to being sick. But another associate can call off twice a week for 2 months straight with no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Management should not show favoritism towards employees and treat everyone the same.
