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

    Pros

    It's usually a pretty upbeat environment; pretty much everyone gets along. The job itself is challenging and usually quite rewarding.

    Cons

    As with most retail positions it is often quite stressful. The store leadership is sometimes lacking, and there is little recognition given from superiors for the work done. Many of the associates there are lazy and only in it for easy pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective in the hiring process for all positions, especially management. Store leaders as as a whole need to have a healthy balance of a strong work ethic, personability, and systems knowledge.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    enjoyed working with co-works, and free e-learnings, discounts, employee raffle and benefits

    Cons

    Although, it was an non-commission position; your constantly being told to attach services toward customer product, effectively becoming less about customer service. Overly goal oriented, and less focused upon employee satisfaction, and more on co-partisanship. I've enjoyed, this position because of fellow employees made it easier to cope. Yet, I would never return, or suggest others to pursue a career or employment with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Disorganized, ignorant and completely dismissive of employee suggestion(s). Upper-level management would persistently attempt to brainwash employees, and imply upon gaining more attachments then customer satisfaction. In addition, continued annoyance of micromanagement and peer-to-peer review yet, instill employee vs. employee competitiveness; along with contradicts in-store policy, when comparing toward corporate guidelines.
