Pros

Coo stuff to play with. Never a dull moment.

If you don't drink the company kool aid you won't get anywhere even if you preform well.

Advice to Management

Don't BS your employees into thinking they're not as good as they are.

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

    Pros

    Great discount plan (yes not as good as it used to be.) Very rewarding work. We get paid to play with and sell the latest devices to customers. Some people in retail shouldn't be in retail. Its a job for people who love people.

    Cons

    Yeah the pay isn't that great for what they ask us to do compared to other similar jobs. Upward movement throughout the company is usually more dependent on restructures and firings then your own personal skills and qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on quality e-learnings and promotion understandings.KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! Induction is great BUT we also need a comprehensive training plan for regular store POS (returns, My Best Buy) operations and merchandising standards (no unfortunately Merch TEAM doesn't do plano 100% or at all in some cases.)
