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

Pros

Decent pay, great discount, great employees

Cons

Expensive health insurance, a lot of redundancy with leadership, lack of focus, management is too busy flirting with the cashiers and going out drinking than running their business. A lot of failure is considered "opportunity" they never get rid of the managers that check out mentally.

Advice to Management

Know your leaders. Talk to your line level employees. Your leadership or lack there of is killing your business.

    Pros

    Employees fun to work with. Interact with a lot of customers. Retail, so easy work.

    Cons

    Technology constantly changing so hard to keep up with all of the products but customers think we should know everything about everything. Management is eh... No room for growth. Retail pay (hard to live on)

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees!

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Discounts, entry level, lots of support tools.

    Cons

    Not very technical, very sales driven, pushed to sell like like its a commission job.

    Advice to Management

    Align your goals with senior management's vision. Managers too often get stuck in solving small issues like a customer waiting, instead of supporting long-term goals
