Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

The technology we sell is most up to date, Employee discount and benefits.

Cons

Leadership roles for women are too difficult to get, cash registers are ancient and difficult for full timers to reach 40 hours with the exception of holidays, when we are worked 17+ hours on Black Friday.

Advice to Management

Recognize loyalty or you'll get the good ones leaving the company for pennies more an hour and a couple extra hours per week. Don't judge your employees so hard on their inability to sell or convince customers of services that they really don't have the money to buy.
