    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Management is very involved in helping employees move up. I can honestly say every manager I have worked for takes pride in seeing their employees move up to positions that they have prepared and worked hard for. Managers do everything in their power to help associates get to the next level. In my experience.

    Cons

    The focus can be misguided sometimes. We are told to look at one thing and make sure it is done well then criticized when something else is put on the back burner. Not everything can be focused on at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus around customer experience and employee experience.

    Happy, friendly people who enjoy bettering each other and helping one another to become a better store and people.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Excellent work culture, great management, fun environment, competitive initial hire retail pay, VERY supportive environment. Overall, a really fun place to work compared to most places in retail.

    Cons

    Difficult work-life balance, difficult to move up within the company (to a corporate level position) unless you want to spend years training to be an ASM or GM.

    Advice to Management

    Please take more time in your hiring process. For specialty positions such as Geek Squad and BBYM please do NOT consider outside applicants unless they have extensive experience in another similar area, as these positions require more knowledge than the typically entry level position (thus the higher pay grade). Other than that, keep it up! You're doing great!

      I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Decent pay Plenty of OT during the holidays (If wanted) Great leadership exposure Sundays are time and a half

      Cons

      Need to have open availability Poor work/life balance Bi weekly pay (Hard to budget) Its retail so being sick or needing a day off for a doctors appointment or to do something with your kids is like pulling teeth

      Advice to Management

      Have more understanding for a non salary employee if they need time off. Stop guilt tripping and belittling employees when you need something done. Be professional and stop engaging in employee banter and or insults at the water cooler. Corporate employees have absolutely no idea what goes on in a store, try promoting from within the company to further drive efficiency and revenue.
