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

Pros

It was great getting to work with and learn about all the latest technology especially being a tech enthusiast,the discount was really nice too.

Cons

management at times cared too much about sales and not enough about employee experience, holiday work schedule was very demanding especially as we began opening earlier and earlier for black Friday and Thanksgiving

Advice to Management

Focus more on employee and consumer experience happy employees make great workers, and an amzing customer experience makes for loyal customers.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of innovation and valuable sales experience for entry level employees. Lots of challenges for young supervisors, providing plenty of opportunity for development. Great employee discount!

    Cons

    Very frequent changes in culture and management. Managers are often under-educated and demand results without providing any meaningful input on how to accomplish those results. Often, intra-store competitions have a negative impact on teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Identify opportunities, develop a simple plan to exploit them and stick with it.

    Pros

    associate discount, there is really not much else... the schedule is not flexible because of the computer automated assignments, which we only would change for no definable reason.... if we liked you as management you got it, if we didnt we harassed you

    Cons

    work life balance, paid your own uniform bill, horrible management sales pressure, warrenty fraud, bundle fraud, un-ethical, term employees for making to much money, told to write bad reviews for associate earning over $12 an hour
