    I worked at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Best Buy has great policies and work standards in place that if you are willing to follow, can lead to a fun sales life.

    Cons

    Pay is very little to the amount of work expected and required on a daily basis. Management is shotty to say the least. Had two of our male amangers sleeping with three of the female associates, and these female associates were obviously given priority over anyone else regarding promotions, giveaways, etc..

    Advice to Management

    Replace Management, fix your pay scales so that they actually have anything to do with employee performance.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the constant changing of technology and the need to learn about new products on a regular basis. Great incentives if you have a decent team. Hubert Joly has done tremendous things with the company. One of the best things I received was an all expenses paid trip to Puerto Rico for being one of the top sales people. It was hard work but well worth it for the trip.

    Cons

    My pay did not reflect the amount of work I put into the job. A lot of younger people worked in my specific store, which typically led to unnecessary drama.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employee veterans better. Start by paying workers accordingly, the hardest worker shouldn't be paid less because of sexuality. They should also be compensated when new employees start off making more than someone who had worked there for years. Turn over might be better if you cared more for the hard working veteran employees.
