I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great development if you work with your leaders on it.

Inside and outside training available.

Really care about their employees.

Some of the best benefits in the industry from healthcare to financial advisors to family planning.

Corporate is very hands on in developing the company in a great way based on customer service.

Holiday pay is great.

Non commissioned in most sales positions but great bonuses if you hit goals.

Cons

Every store runs quite a bit differently, management per store really controls how the store feels and operates.

PTO when first becoming full time is unbearable low.

Advice to Management

Employees need a way to better understand how they are impacting he company and that what they are doing is actually helping the company progress. Employees seem to lose motivation due to not understanding the growth of the company.
