I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

discount on product, work with cool gadgets, lots of young people

Cons

Hours get crazy during the holidays, just cut labor and managers at all stores

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pinching pennies is fine, but stop making it so difficult on the employees.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training and networking opportunities, great benefits including tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Leadership positions are very stressful! Lack on continuity in communication...expectations vary from manager to manager, store to store. If you have an excellent manager, you will do well and learn a lot. But often managers are promoted based on numbers, not on managerial and leadership skills. High turnover in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to talk to each other! Get on the same page! And give your employees some security by not "reorganizing" and letting people go every single spring!

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for. Had several roles over the years and opportunities to excel. The overall talent at the stores and corporate is high.

    Cons

    Sad to see them lose very talented leadership as they change their business model in order to be competitive in the retail space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good to see top level change and fresh ideas in order to have renewed success
