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

    Pros

    Good Coworkers, Good amount of breaks. Tattoos allowed on the workers. managers were chill. Enjoyed the environment overall.

    Cons

    Didn't really like working cashier. The hours weren't the best. They made me work when I had pink eye. It was black Friday.. they let me off at some point, was still dreadful. Working customer service sucked if someone called out.

    Advice to Management

    Stay chill, thank you for the happy environment. Thanks to the company for that discount.

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

    Pros

    Depends on the store, but it feels less like a job with coworkers and more of a family. Different work environment than other retail stores. The company itself is great, the stores can be a drama filled trainwreck at times.

    Cons

    Sales driven goals with zero incentives. Yearly raises are a joke and are based off the store's performance, not your own. In a few years the new hires will be making basically the same as you. Also moving up into leadership positions is impossible unless you are one of the manager's favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Stop only caring about credit cards and recognize the employees that are working hard every single shift.

    Pros

    company values employee development
    laid back coworkers when not busy
    part timers bonus (NO other companies do this)

    Cons

    not flexible about holidays, but they make that very clear when they interview you

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

    Pros

    Great people and a fun working environment. Every day I find myself enjoying it more and more and I've only been there for 6 months.

    Cons

    Never have the same shifts week to week. This makes future planning difficult which does hinder my lifestyle a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing but try to find away to help the new kids a bit more. Our e-learning program is great but so many of the new kids are struggling and leaving because of it.
