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

Pros

Anyone is willing to help you or answer a question. A lot of eLearnings to familiarize yourself with your job.

Cons

You have to be a quick learning and be able to self-manage. Keep track of your number and put yourself in good standing.

Advice to Management

Input training/orientation times manually for the new employees. Had difficulty remembering how many hours and what days I did orientation/staff meeting by the time I learned how to manually clock-in.

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

    Pros

    again the pay is pretty good especially the bonus potential.

    Cons

    the stress level is ridiculous, the district managers verbally tell you to align with the company values, while at the same time they wink and nudge at you to through those values out the window and gain results at all cost, all whilst protecting themselves.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the people who are used to the "old Best Buy" and their archaic ways of running the business. also Hubert Jolie is doing (what seems like a very) good job, but they nee to work on streamlining of the systems. but the biggest issue is the employee experience and the way you treat employees (especially the department managers, and sups) and respect and promote a work/life balance!

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

    Pros

    There are opportunities to grow and lots learn in many different areas. This company offers a lot of flexibility for moving up and around through various locations and many positions. Best Buy can be a wonderful place to work especially with all the new technology that comes together in one building.

    Cons

    It's a pretty normal retail environment, but the down side of being non commissioned means that wether its a big sale or a small sale no one makes an extra dime past to hours put in. Pay cap is a bit low but by no means the worst out there.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep in mind that the associates on the floor are the true face of the company and their development will be the best path to success. Don't follow the path of other retailers, and by this I mean focus on your associates as the investment they are. Best Buy has some incredible people within it's walls and that is the reason for the companies resilience in the face of everything. Please never forget that and don't try to make a come back by bleeding out the "overhead" of labor, we are what make it happen for you every day. One person can not operate an entire sales floor nor can they know everything about every area.
