    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    If you work at a store and you are not management, you work your hours and then you can go home. Done. Don't have to think about it.

    Cons

    Store management sucks. It depends on the manager, but who schedules people for a 7 hour shift without a break, not even 15 minutes?
    Hires with the promise of being able to apply for better opportunities within the company, but those are empty promises. You'd have to kiss ass for quite a few years to get anywhere that pays something more than $10/hour.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your customer facing employees. They are the ones your customers meet, not all of you sitting in your fancy office chair.


  2. "Not a bad start"

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Usually fun team mates whom enjoy competition and goofing off while being productive. The majority of the time if I needed time off they would approve it.

    Cons

    GM and Mobile manager was great but everyone else in leadership was absolutely horrible. I could honestly say they are the reason I left... that and the pay for what we did SUCKED.

    Advice to Management

    Go to your garden, throw dirt on yourselves and pretend you're a carrot.
