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

Pros

pros there is good people that work there

Cons

big boys attitude, they treat their security like they are step childs or errand boys, they cant get breaks, or lunch they have to work from 5 hours to 9 hours with out it while the special treatment sales get 3 to 4 breaks and lunch.

Advice to Management

pay attention to who is really doing the work, its usually not your favorite people considering they walk around or when management has meetings they all run to the corner and hide. so funny to see bbym/ home theater/ computer empty an the sales in the corner of applicances while customers walk around

    Approves of CEO

    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.
