I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits and competitive pay
Room for growth and great development programs

Cons

Middle Management and lack of direction/leadership.

Advice to Management

Upper management needs to empower the managers in stores rather than force them to pass the buck and always be fearful of losing their jobs.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work there is for the learning experience. You get to learn about the different technologies out there and if you are self driven, you have training's available to better yourself.

    Cons

    Hypocrisy would be the biggest one. As a sales associate you are told you are evaluated by behaviors. Truth be told, your behaviors will be judged by your sales numbers. It is like working a commission job without the commission.

    Advice to Management

    Please allow more opportunity within the company or your employees have nothing to work towards.

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

    Pros

    Great Salary, Love my coworkers and a few management members, lots of employee training on business values.

    Cons

    Claims to be a "low pressure" business environment because of the "not off commission" business but STILL have monthly goals to meet, and monthly sit downs if not reached. Overall, no matter what is put forth in the business value, all that matters is the customers $$$.
