    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Entry-Level sales and retail experience. Depending on the management of each store, can be beneficial as a stepping stone to better career paths.

    Cons

    Limited ability to move up in the company. Limited personal growth depending on management. Retail job, so interacting with difficult customers at times. Low pay and generally part-time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting top-paid performers. While this is a short-term cash consideration, the long-term effects never benefit the customer or the company.

    Cons

    The pushiness by managers and their "over-dedication" to the company, at the expense of the individual employee was evident at all three of the stores I had worked at. The managers sink a bare minimum of 60+ hours a week into the company, often closing or opening the store at least 4 days a week, and sometimes closing and then opening the next morning, which led the managers to form tight-knit circles among themselves,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing so defensively. Allocate more staff for higher management and mid-level management to encourage more people to become involved in leadership and given the change for job promotion. The company policies in the district I worked in (at the time, D-49), hurt the managers by overworking them, to the point of exhaustion and waking up hungover from past nights closing, then early openings. Look more after your...
