    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 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Occasional difficult customers. Other than that. No real cons regarding Best Buy and the environment. There are occasional customers that are difficult or rude, but it's not that bad.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay compared to similar jobs, endless amounts of benefits, really fun place to make a career.

    Cons

    A great culture starts with a positive leadership team to keep the employee force engaged. Unfortunately this is not consistent in every store.

    Advice to Management

    It starts with you!

    Discount is neat, good path to work up the ladder if you wanted to.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, bonus pay, PTO for vacation and sick days, time and a half pay on holidays, fantastic insurance 401k and stock options.

    Cons

    Minimum of 40 hours a week. Everything else here is fantastic but it would also depend on location. Certain employees lack work ethic but it's up to you to do your job so it hasn't cause me any issues.

    Advice to Management

    NA
