I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

discount on product, work with cool gadgets, lots of young people

Cons

Hours get crazy during the holidays, just cut labor and managers at all stores

Advice to Management

Pinching pennies is fine, but stop making it so difficult on the employees.

    "We don't think you're fit for a promotion"

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

    Pros

    Looking back on my 4 years spent there, I appreciate the knowledge I gained around the products.

    Cons

    No development was put into me, no matter how hard I tried to move up. I consistently had good numbers, but still had unnecessary pressure put on me because "I wasn't good enough to be promoted." They hire people with NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE for leadership roles.

    Advice to Management

    Develop the people that desire opportunity, and don't promote your friends because they're your friends.
