No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Entrepenurial spirit, Flexibility, People, Culture at the time was great

Cons

No documentation - starting over, again and again.
Retail experience outside of BBY wasn't valued

Advice to Management

Stop with the weekly purges, if the talent is weak - get rid of them but a weekly purge is demoralizing. Your problems won't be solved by a couple of high powered executives - it will only be resolved when the organization starts working together - not out of fear.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount, good co workers, okay management

    Cons

    Pay, no weekends off, unrealistic goals

    Advice to Management

    If the customer says no, then it's no. Don't hassle the employee for not making a giant sale every sale. Not everyone on earth is rich.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working Electronics, this is the place to be, Employee discounts and promotions were the best I have ever experienced. And the poeple I worked with were some of my favorite. Like a small community.

    Cons

    All business, Hours dropped a lot and as a Full-time they only needed to give you 34 hours and tried to as much as possible to keep in budget. Raises were almost a never occurrence, and sometimes Management just seemed not to care.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better! Just do it
