    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most people that work there are very welcoming and very helpful to the newbies. I say “most” only because there is always that one person who doesn’t get along with anybody. There is a discount as well as accommodations! Not incredibly demanding physically. Especially in comparison, for example, to a grocery store job. Get to be in touch with all the latest consumer tech. STRONG sense of ethics when it comes to... topics of any kind of discrimination or verbal abuse.

    Cons

    This is a Fortune 500 company. Ultimately every employee is going to become just another number on a performance spreadsheet or similar P&L report. This is also a retail establishment, so all of the usual qualms that come with working in retail apply at some point or another. Sense of Job Security is quite lacking. A restructure of the sales floor labor happens a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes your employees don’t need to deal with the vagueness that you’ve become accustomed to dealing with while working at Best Buy. That kind of stuff leads them to go looking for other positions on websites like this.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Full timers get a decent amount of time off. Employee discount is decent. Management in both stores that I have worked in have been laid back and approachable. If you put your head down and work, then you will do fine.

    Cons

    Bad choices/prices on healthcare options
