I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

At the time I worked at Best Buy it seemed like there was plenty of upward mobility if you were willing to put in the time. Everyone I worked with was very close-knit and it was a great store at the time.

Cons

Unfortunately by the time I was let go as a seasonal employee due to school, the company was changing. It was becoming highly revenue driven and didn't feel the same as it did when I first started.

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

    Pros

    Decent culture, dependent on the store. Company is now probably headed somewhat upright but they're not out of the rough yet.

    Cons

    Out of touch management, constant changing of procedures, common-sense decisions being overruled by out of date policy. Old CEO was terrible, thank god he got canned.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding compensation again and get rid of the high school part-timers, they're what's giving Best Buy a bad rep.

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

    Pros

    Very fun coworkers! I made quite a lot of long time friends there.

    Cons

    Sell Sell Sell Sell Sell

    Even if you're not in a position where you can sell, such as Geek Squad PC repair, you're still pressured to get credit card applications and sell.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to realize they can't compete with Walmart and that physical stores are going out of business.
