Best Buy at a glance

Senior (Current Employee) Beverly Hills, FL (US)

ProsYou'll meet and work with great people within your department.
It really is a team environment.

ConsManagement doesn't seem to know what they want.
One minute they'll ask you to meet certain criteria and the next minute they'll punish you for meeting the same criteria they just asked you to complete.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of hiring managers externally who go on power trips and don't understand the full rules of the store, why not try to train and promote internally?
A manager whose been properly trained and worked in the store from Day 1 will be more effective than somebody who has experience from a competing name brand.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
