    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a very proactive and adaptable company. Many opportunities to give back in the community as well. The entire team was very close-knit and socialized well outside of work. The culture within the big blue box was typical of a well to do, enthusiastic retail team.

    Cons

    The particular store I worked at was not very diverse or well off in advancement opportunities. I was personally passed over so that senior management could diversify the department even though the candidates were not well qualified, which was unfortunate for everyone involved in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being more personal with advancement and improvement is a plus. I felt very lumped with my peers when I was above average.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There really wasn't any pros. They hire people with no experience, but are picky for no specific reason. Discriminates in both employment and treatment of current employees.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement, horrible treatment of employees, highly unethical.
