I have been working at Best Buy as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Flexible. Smart coworkers and managers. Opportunities to grow. Ability to help the company change.

Cons

It's a large corporation, and working across teams can be a challenge (technology / geography).

Change happens slowly. BBY's biggest problem is fixing everything that's broken and improving customer experience at store and online.

Advice to Management

Continue to work with your teams to build consistency and streamline both Process (how the projects get tackled), and Technology (the way everything talks to each other).

Try to hold people accountable for their work, and try to get meetings running more efficiently. There is often 5-10 minutes of dead time as people show up/ deal with tech issues/ introduce themselves. This adds up.

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

    Pros

    Do what you love doing, work with people, coworkers genuinely nice

    Cons

    Training provided is extremely sub par, managers have attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees. I was left standing for 4 hours waiting for my manager to return. Continual "I'll be right back" and never actually coming back. 2 full months and literally no hands on training. Only one person on my sales team actually went through sales training.
