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

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Great Discount
    Fun technology
    Know about products/play with products before release

    Cons

    Not great pay
    Management thinks their poop is made of gold
    Leniency only if you're in the cool kids club
    No promotion unless you kiss ass, no matter how good you are

    Advice to Management

    When someone reports a drug dealer in the store to district, it would be best to act on that instead of ignoring it.
    Promote based on ability, not on the ability to kiss ass.
    Take care of your people who are good at their jobs instead of chasing them away.
