    Pros

    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.

    I’m a new hire with a lot of experience however I am still coachable and willing to learn. Victor and my direct supervisor as been absolutely amazing with how they put training and real life situation in front of you. They establish foundation and are excited to see you thrive.

    Cons

    Light on staffing but these guys know how to make the adjustments needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep mike - victor - Albert

    These guys are rare !!!! EXTREMELY RARE !!!

    Pros

    They send you to training to help you become knowledgeable about the product. Had Intel, Samsung, Apple reps all help grow your knowledge on their brand.

    Cons

    Performance-based scheduling so if you did not do good or sell their insurance your hours would be cut. Very competitive environment.

    Pros

    Great environment to work in - employees are laid back and emphasize having fun while working. Employee discount is great.

    Cons

    Being pushed to meet sales goals that are sometimes unrealistic. Did not like being pressured to sell warranties and credit cards that customers did not need.

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

    Pros

    Helped pay for my education and provided healthcare. Great for high school and college students. Great team/family culture.

    Cons

    Considering that it is a premium retail big box store, with very high end products and a lot of training involved, it is hard to make a full time career after a certain point. The pay (for full time, let alone a specialty) does not match the amount of work that can be involved.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Best Buy is helping customers enhance their lives through the latest technology.

    Cons

    If you are not under the right management, you may feel like you are stuck in your position.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of your company. Treat them like I do not matter and what they think doesn't affect your business and you will be proven wrong. I have seen first-hand how a general manager can turn the atmosphere of an entire District around. To drive Improvement and to decrease turnover rate. I'm talking over 30 internal promotions in less than 2 years, and one of the best work families I've ever been a part of.
