    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Usually very flexible with scheduling and allowed for me to be in school while working full time.
    -Fun, fast paced environment
    -Great employee discount
    -Opportunities for personal growth
    -Commitment to diversity and inclusiveness that went beyond a statement

    Cons

    -Entry wages were fairly low compared to cost of living but still met min. wage requirements.
    -High turnover with both line-level and managers led to confusion

    Advice to Management

    The one thing to think about is the level of support and access to on-the-job perks such as gyms, health and childcare at the corporate level vs. the line level. When I worked there I was always confused by the amount of benefits Corp. employees had vs. those in sales.

    Pros

    The discount is pretty good, though not as good as it used to be. Working with new technology is rewarding if you are into tech.

    Cons

    Poor store level management can result in high turnover rates and increased strain and stress on remaining employees. Staffing needs to have more foresight so that high traffic periods don't catch everyone with their pants down. Politics prevent those who deserve from getting promoted and those that don't deserve a promotion get it out of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like humans not pieces on a chess board and maybe the turnover rate won't be as bad.
