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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule- perfect for a student or transitional job. Management will work with your schedule.

    Experience- The Bestbuy brand is well respected and what employees experience here will help them with any future jobs

    Cons

    Poor pay- The pay is kept low because of the "Short Term Incentive" which is a department based monthly team bonus, that is paid out in accordance with hours worked in that month. It is also low and very difficult to attain due to high profit margin standards.

    Non Commission based wage, but a commission based environment- Supervisor are the worst perpetrators of this, the company prides itself on non commission employees, but treat their employees as if they are commissioned. They will push an up sale even if its not beneficial to the consumers

    Advice to Management

    Remember what its like on the sales floor and place attainable goals on your employees.

    Pros

    Best Buy has multiple reasons why it is a great place to work. If you want to move up or to a more relevant position, management will work with you to put in the place that will benefit the company the most. Upper management is always there to listen and help. Our executive staff has a plan and a vision

    Cons

    Currently we are in a rocky state. Although stabilizing quickly, you still have some uncertainty about your job and your company. You really need to be a team player and put in the extra hours if you want to work here. We can't afford bad employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You make this place an amazing work environment. If I can I plan on retiring from Best Buy
