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

Pros

For most it was a great work environment. It was like working with your friends everyday. Got to pal with the newest electronic gadgets

Cons

Management shifts are frequent, and not always for the best. Some managers just get cycled around when they're not meeting their goals. Training can be spotty an not 100% informative

Advice to Management

Invest in your infrastructure to make employees jobs easier, and provide better quality training instead of a video have actual trainers who are certified

    Pros

    Worked in the Best Buy for Business group. Good management, great teammates and it helps to sell with a big brand name behind you.

    Cons

    The department was constantly fluctuating with what we could sell, our pay structure, management groups, etc. Bad communication and teamwork with the stores. There are far more lucarative companies to work for in terms of $ to put up with this inside sales environment. The rest of the company treats you like the ugly step child that no one wants to help.
