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

    Pros

    Greenville, NC Store #386 is based in a college town so it has a very young, active employee base with many of the employees hanging out outside of work. The store pushes a team motto and does a lot of extra curricular events outside of work, ie awareness walks and community events. Monthly all-store meetings started with hilarious videos and prizes for top sellers, ie gadgets or company stock.

    Cons

    The employees and management has a high turn-over rate as managers shuffle to different stores trying to work their way up the ladder. It can make for an inconsistant work experience. Some managers will play with part-timer's hours to keep them just under full-time, ie 39 hours a week leading to inconsistent hours for part-timers, ie 15-18 hours one week, 39 the next week. Everyone fights for full-time positions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work at Store #386 WALK THE PLANK!

    Pros

    ROWE program - ability to work from anywhere and have own hours
    Great campus
    Very laid-back environment

    Cons

    ROWE has gone too far in some areas. I could go for 2 weeks at a time without seeing anyone who reports to me because they didn't need to show up at the office. Makes collaboration difficult.

    Need to rethink the dress code - yoga pants do not belong in the office!

    Don't expect to get promoted if you're smart and work hard. You only get promoted 1 of 3 ways: a director or vp likes you, you are active on social media and tell everyone about it, or you threaten to leave.

    Advice to Management

    All of our good people are leaving, and if you haven't noticed, it's really hard to get outsiders to apply. Get digital leaders within dotcom who actually understand how to use the technology they're selling.
