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.

    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.

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

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