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

    Pros

    Generally fun experience, usually friendly with staff and cool things to play with, constantly learning new things and techniques. Good overall not to stressful usually.

    Cons

    Management lurking over you constantly, job security not so good. Most staff scared they may be let go at any given time

    Advice to Management

    Get some training on how to talk to employees and make sure they not only you but senior management also follow those rules. Also micro managing is not good for the well being of employees

    I liked that the upper Management came to visit the store, however if we had one-on-one introductions that would be great too.
