I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Friendly people, great corporate campus, ROWE is fantastic, great discount, lots of opportunity once you get your foot in the door, constantly changing environment, great experience.

Cons

Salary is a bit low compared to the industry, but worth the trade-off in my opinion. Very responsive to the state of the economy, like all retail.

Advice to Management

Bump salary ranges to keep top talent from leaving the company for other opportunities. Make Best Buy a place to grow and know you will earn what you deserve.

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

    Pros

    The hours aren't too bad. Discount is nice. Good as a job for stepping stone on your way to something else.

    Cons

    Management that constantly revolves. Lack of vision and competence at store level.

    Advice to Management

    Promote talent. Fire more supervisors and managers when they can't do their job.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A paycheck.
    Notice down below how I marked work/life balance as 5 stars; this is because they scheduled me SO LITTLE that I had nothing but time on my hands.

    Cons

    Constantly cutting hours
    Horrible pay
    Too much sales pressure
    Annoying management
    Rude/condescending customers
    Some of the coworkers were very moody, easily frustrated, and "friendly fired" on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Stop harassing employees about making sales, they are trying! It seems like they see numbers instead of human beings.
