    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allowed to move around and come and go as personal schedule dictates/ within reason

    Cons

    Stack ranking SUCKS, if you turn crank (even if you are doing great job) you will be asked to leave. You must be able to walk on water.

    Advice to Management

    After 15 years of service - It is still 'What can you do for us today! we don't give a DAMM what you have done for us in the past' attitude that SUCKS the most and should be changed.

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

    Pros

    Pay and FREE phone and tablet.

    Cons

    Hard to get a promotion. I personally applied for 10 positions outside of my home store and only had one interview, you will be lucky to get a thanks but no thanks email. The company hires based off of your gender and race not based off of skill. Hire a TON of Best Buy people. Little to no marketing about the stores. Too many products rotating in stock makes it hard to stay current on training and keep customers happy.

    Advice to Management

    STOP HIRING FROM BEST BUY! Learn how to spend money on marketing the retail stores existence.
