    Great leadership that provides vision and direction. Fun atmosphere and place to work.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours are there if you work for it. Or else you will only get very small shifts like 4 or 6 hours. I would say its worth it during the holidays.

    Cons

    The lob itself is very taxing on the body. Over time you will feel it. Also there is very little love for the merch team. Depending on the store you are located you will be everyone's fetch boy.

    Advice to Management

    Support the warehouse like you do the sales floor. And get EVERYONE on the same page! If I can sell anything in the store as a warehouse employee, the sales team should know the basics of operations as well.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my 4 years at BBY corporate. There is a strong culture that is very positive. It is fast-paced, but I enjoyed that. For the most part, people care about others and there is a good work-life balance

    Cons

    BBY attracts a lot of talent, and managers tend to stay in their positions for a long time. This limits opportunity for advancement for people that are ready.
