I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Fun Environment.
Customer Centric Selling Strategies.
Work with the latest and greatest technologies.
If you show up everyday and focus on the customers first and their needs and come to work, you can advance very easily if you are consistent in your efforts and can produce winning solutions for the customer and the company.

Cons

Really not many, its retail, so if you understand the demands of a retail job then you will enjoy your time there.
If you don't understand that retail is demanding, requires long hours at times, and you have to work with customers constantly and problem solve constantly then this is not the job for you, all retail has the same demands.

Advice to Management

Keep investing in your people, they are your companies greatest asset! Continue to build partnerships with your vendors and do whatever it takes to make the customer smile.

    Pros

    The discount and the people you work with in your department.

    Cons

    No room for error, you can be an employee for 1 year or over 10 years but if you make a selective mistake they with terminate you or run you out the door. They will under pay you and will not accommodate family and personal medical situations. They never provide with the correct information regarding a potential promotion or job change especially if you are planning to leave to another store.

    Advice to Management

    It’s a lost cause, they will be two faced only worry about the revenue and the employee well being is the last thing on their mind
