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

    Pros

    Discounts were probably the only upside of this, and even that at some point they tried to remove. I

    Cons

    There is no people development, here the keyword is POLITICS. Workers are micro managed and if you don't perform on demand management will retaliate, mostly by cutting your hrs. Employees feel unappreciated and moods are more often than not down.

    Advice to Management

    Those people you look down on are the ones doing the REAL work, without them you wouldn't have a job.... Learn to appreciate.
