I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great discount. I've met so many amazing people over the last eight years working there, nothing can change the friends that I've made and even met my current partner there. Very flexible with hours, ability to work overtime during the holidays/busy times. You get occasional bonuses based off of department performance. Employee accommodations from multiple brands (other discounts).

Cons

Having to work almost all holidays (only get off Easter and Christmas). raises are only annual and go by performance. every department has a salary cap so even if you get a great review you may already reach pay cap. it's hard to move up unless you suck up to current management. Hours are cut during slower seasons. Hard to get a Full-Time spot.

Advice to Management

Schedule better during busy times, listen to what your employees have to say and always be on their side and not the customer.
