Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Generous discount on certain items, lots of ways to improve product knowledge, and generally good people at your own level to work with.

Cons

Micromanagement by the senior leaders to the point where when you walk in the door you have one of them on you to do something before you even punch in. A focus on sales numbers that put a commissioned based position to shame. Management being so self absorbed to think that they are the most important person. Management pulling you off of a sale to help in a department that isn't your current area.

Advice to Management

Decide what is more important: numbers or employees.

    Pros

    The discounts, employee accommodations, and the people I worked with really made the job worth keeping for a while.

    Cons

    The holiday hours were rough, the politics among the leadership made it hard to advance if you weren't in with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always look at profits when it means losing quality employees to hit a financial number.
