    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    It was a lot of fun working there, while they had a solid General Manager in place. The training is great, and the discount is wonderful.

    Cons

    Policy depends entirely on the General Manager of each store. This caused very high turnover during transition periods, and no real sense of job security.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pick and choose when you want to follow policies, based on whether or not the result is advantageous for you personally.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generally nice coworkers, not including management. Training was pretty thorough. They talk a good game about ethics and doing right by the customer (they don't actually do that in practice though). If they practiced what they preached they could create a nice atmosphere where people were willing to pay a little more for good service from non-pushy, knowledgeable salespeople. It's too bad they don't do that.

    Cons

    Very high pressure atmosphere. Managers can be downright mean to employees who aren't performing to their ridiculous standards. They expected huge sales numbers in a little store that had less than 100 customers walk in per day. With so few customers coming in, it was impossible to actually meet those goals. Especially when you realize that most people just come in to look at stuff that they're going to go home and buy...

    Advice to Management

    Stop being jerks to your employees. Your employees do their best but let's face it, they're paid the same as grocery store baggers so the high stress environment is just going to make good employees quit, like I did. Also, cool it with the aggressive sales tactics. It scares customers away since no one likes pushy sales people. You guys already mark up all your products, you can't afford to be scaring customers away too....
