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

Pros

Usually always hiring, not hard to get hired, better than a fast food job

Cons

Company does not care about its employees though it would have you believe that is does. Pay is very unfair and uneven. New, non-experienced worker was hired for same position as me and received over $2 more an hour than me and other associates. In fact, the person was most critical to our department and was there the longest actually got the lowest pay. They treat you like a child as well. Not much good about this job.

Advice to Management

The management are just overpaid peons as well. They have no authority to fix the real issues that are wrong with this company.

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

    Pros

    Lots of bonus opportunity, sales positions are paid O.K. for non-labor intensive unskilled work, lots of benefits available tuition assistance, 401k, health and welfare etc.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth, outside hiring is often preferred over internal growth in management or supervisor positions.

    Advice to Management

    No clear path for employees to go to from the floor to a better paying position for example a lead in any business group doesn't really have any direct reports failing to cultivate any leadership skills which are necessary for any management/supervisory positions.
