    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at two store locations, and both were positive experiences. Decent pay for the work, no commission so the work environment is friendly. We do bonus if we hit productivity numbers for the month which is an extra plus. Extra pay for holidays. Paid time off for full time and up employees. LEGIT Tuition Reimbursement for full timers. Extremely flexible hours and vacation time off is always accepted. As I'm looking for a career now, it's going to be hard to find something better than what this company has been giving me. if you work hard promotions are vast and fastly achieveable.

    Cons

    it's a retail job, you have to deal with difficult customers and situations, there's a lot of work and responsibility, and you have to work holidays, but the team tries to make it as fun as possible for all.

    Advice to Management

    More direct critique and on the spot training daily to move up quickly in the company.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great people, cool technology. I loved working there, nothing really to complain about. I would highly recommend anyone work there. So fun!

    Cons

    They sometimes tried to make you sell things to people who didn't nee the items just to sell stuff. So I didn't like upselling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Try to encourage people to move up in the company more. Be nice to everyone.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, store discount, stock discounts, health plans, tuition reimbursement, and yearly reviews for a raise.

    Cons

    Corporate Management is always changing how to run the company on a store level. The expectations are set too high so there is a lot of turn around in the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t change the way we sell every quarter, stop using silly movies and gimmicky sales tactics to train us for one quarter and then realize it doesn’t work so you implement a new plan next quarter. It is an unnecessary use of training time and causes confusion.
