    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great development if you work with your leaders on it.

    Inside and outside training available.

    Really care about their employees.

    Some of the best benefits in the industry from healthcare to financial advisors to family planning.

    Corporate is very hands on in developing the company in a great way based on customer service.

    Holiday pay is great.

    Non commissioned in most sales positions but great bonuses if you hit goals.

    Cons

    Every store runs quite a bit differently, management per store really controls how the store feels and operates.

    PTO when first becoming full time is unbearable low.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need a way to better understand how they are impacting he company and that what they are doing is actually helping the company progress. Employees seem to lose motivation due to not understanding the growth of the company.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome work environment, fun interactive workplace, very social daily routine, interesting conversations, and overall cool tech that we get to play with leads into an amazing work experience. I have loved working for Best Buy. I plan to peruse a career in the company.

    Cons

    Not too many cons. Revenue goals can sometimes cause small stress or competition, but we don't get paid commission so it wont affect our paycheck. It is still retail, so holidays are crazy, but still fun.

    Advice to Management

    Jesus, Kody, Marshall, Cameron, just everyone at my home 1146, keep doing what you're doing. I love you guys.

    Friendly environment. Good pay. Good/flexible hours as well as friendly management and friendly co-workers. Good experience and good discounts. Excellent first job experience.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you love people, this is a great place to work. The pay is pretty good for a retail job, and the environment is always pretty exciting. there is tons of new gadgets and tech to go around. So anyone into computers, phones, or TV's should have a blast.

    Cons

    Some of the management can be a little hard to get along with, and moving up in the company can get tough because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to employee suggestions and ideas . Also take to consider the good that is going on in the store rather than the bad
