    Mike - Victor - Albert

    These guys are 1 unit and know how to pick talent and grow a team. They are EXTREMELY ethical and the definition of servant leadership.

    Hold the highest expectations around behaviors. Recognize and promote good behavior while constructively coaching poor behavior. Encourage, motivate, develop your employeee. When you're the SFL.

    Pros

    In the right store and right situation it can be a fun work environment.

    Cons

    There's a lot of internal politics that lead to people getting passed by when they deserve promotions, while people that don't deserve them continue to move through the company with no real skill.

    Advice to Management

    Don't base an employees salary on their peers but on their ACTUAL worth.

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

    Pros

    Great people. Most of the people seem to genuinely care about employees and customers. It really is a friendly and fun environment most of the time. The culture has definitely shifted for the better. It is starting to show with our growing profits.

    Cons

    I don't blame Best Buy, but the retail schedule is terrible when you want to start a family. It's impossible to get days off (especially weekends), and the holidays are miserable. Work life balance is the #1 drainer on this company. Managers also feel pretty overworked most of the time. 1 more salaried manager, and maybe another hourly supervisor would probably help with both the time off problem, and the stress levels of the leadership teams at each store.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility with scheduling.
