    The merchandise. I could have spent my whole paycheck there.

    There was no work/family environment. It was all Best Buy.

    Remember that your employees have a life outside of Best Buy.

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

    Pros

    Pay is great if you can find a manager that has your best interests in mind. Bonuses, both monthly and annually, are great extra incentive to sell your heart out! If you're lucky enough to be employed by that kind of manager, they'll accommodate your school schedule.

    Cons

    As a full time employee, there is no work/life balance. Your days off are not days off. There is no such thing. Even with full time benefits, you will not get any requested days off September-January. It doesn't matter what it's for, and it doesn't matter if you absolutely need the time off. Vacation time isn't approved during this time either. To have healthy and happy employees, it seems necessary to take care of them, and year after year, they never are.

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing more into your front line employees, allowing them one weekend off a month like you do with your general managers. In my experience, the GM or Mobile Manager doesn't deal with customer issues and pawns them off on their leads. Full Time employees should have a weekend off as well, without work related texts and calls, and have the chance to be reenergized and enjoy personal time off.
