    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    Love majority of the staff, even a lot of the managers and customers. There's a lot of young, fun and knowledgeable employees here. Plenty of recognition from management (although this can vary from employee and department.) Lots of training (to be fair, I was hired as a seasonal and needed to be rushed to the floor but there is always constant training both on the sales floor, vendors teaching you their products and...

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement. Stressful at times. With all the talk about the company going under, it just makes it harder to enjoy your work. It's retail, so of course you'll have your fair share of rude customers and too many expectations. Sometimes the traffic gets so slow you don't know what to do with yourself, especially when you're just trying to meet your daily goals. I liked my managers on an individual...

    Advice to Management

    Company loses a lot of time and money simply trying to cater to "the customer." I've seen them grant absurd discounts to rude customers just to make them happy and treat their loyal ones like crap. On that note, stop allowing resellers to come into your store and buy you out of your best sales/products just to meet your goals. You guys will do ANYTHING to meet those goals, including messing up your employees numbers and...

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

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers, good for a first job, flexible hours, interesting customers, great place to learn business and learn about new technology, decent pay for younger workers.

    Cons

    Constantly changing, Managers don't always respect associates, Managers rarely back-up associates, don't always promote from within the store, training is nearly non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. We spend the most amount of time with customers and know what small changes can improve the customer experience. Allow for more training time with new products and procedures. Also, start giving recognition to the associates that clearly bust their butts every time they enter the building. You will lose them as employees if they do not feel appreciated.

    Former Employee - Special Agent in Woodland Hills, CA

    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    Company car, paid gas. Technology perks. Best Buy discount. Some nice clients, who sometimes tip. Direct management was very supportive, but senior management seemed to be busy being politically correct and less busy handling actual issues. Something nice was that you got a company phone and could use it to retrieve your jobs and create notes. You *could* do a full day's work without going to the store, though management...

    Cons

    Uniform. In-home (all of it unless tipped or nice clients). Some business clients would get angry. WORST: for special agents, the sales process - the sales people were technically brain dead, so every sales process had to have a special agent present, and in most cases we were the salespeople. Guidance (the call center) was not very helpful most of the time, often they would simply hand you the problem with little...
