Advice to Management

Actually listen to your employees, don't just blow us off with empty promises. I only worked there for about 7 months but management was insane, expecting something different doing the exact same thing every day

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Best Buy is a company that trains their employees very well. Everyone, including part-time employees understand where the company stands financially everyday and also learn business acumen. There is a lot of room for growth. Many people work themselves up from part-time employees to managers and even district managers.

    Cons

    The work is not hard but it can be stressful at times with specific budgets that must be met everyday. The managers have very specific things that must be taught out which they get passed down from their district managers. There is always a new company objective, so this job is for a person that handles change very well.

    Advice to Management

    Management usually is just doing what are they are being told to do. There is a lot of accountability around performance. It is retail and sales and this environment by itself is stressful.


  2. "Good college/high school job."

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

    Pros

    Well known company and looks good on resume. Teaches great team work skills. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Not enough communication and to much coming from corporate office who tries to make one plan fit all stores which isn't possible. Do not pay enough for the responsibility they put on their employees. Of both stores I was in they micro-managed their employees to much.

    Advice to Management

    Have more trust in their employees and do not micro-manage. Pay employees not by job title, but by the responsibility they have.

    Take care of your customers + Take care of your employees= Successful company.
