    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my coworkers as they were a group of intelligent individuals. The Geek Squad corporate personnel were very good about providing the necessary tools to perform mission critical jobs.

    Cons

    Store leadership was lacking focus and an understanding of how technical support operates (they applied sales tracking principles to measure success).

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start out, training is so-so but you do learn alot on the fly. Decent benefits package.

    Cons

    Low pay caps, Retail hours,Little respect from management. Employees are over-worked and underpaid. Little to no training is offered unless you take it on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they're worth, you get what you pay for, cheap labor = employees who will not care about the customer or the job, they'll show up when they want and act how they want.
    Pay your best what they are worth, so much money is made that could be invested back in the employee so the customer truly gets a good experience, not a half-hearted sales pitch. Make them feel like they're worth it, and they'll give you all they've got and more.
