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.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Overall, I love this company. It is a great job to have while being in school or just starting out. It is a company that you can grow with and there are many paths you can take.

    Cons

    Your store's management team dictates how the store runs and the moral.

    Sometimes training and coaching isn't always consistent. Or it can take awhile to get the word out about updates and changes.

    New full-time employees PTO hours are extremely small. Has taken me almost an entire year to even have enough to take a couple days off.

    Hard to get promoted in smaller stores.

    Advice to Management

    I would look into how to fix PTO/pay issues. I know a lot of people who have worked there for 3+ years and make just as much or less than new hires.

    As well as finding a way to enforce all of management to coach and train employees. That is how the store runs smoothly and employees grow.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Probably one of the better places to work as far as retail. Competitive Pay, Decent Bonuses, Nice employee perks/discount

    Cons

    Internal Politics as you would probably get with any other retail job
