    Former Employee - Project Assistant in Memphis, TN (US)

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (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 have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great employee accommodations, some very smart coworkers, some leadership cares about you as a person, good pay rates for retail, lots of repeat customers that become friends, good recognition system to line level (FT or PT) employees.

    Cons

    Too many people have different opinions of how to run the place instead of sticking to the structure the company has given to the stores. There's not much of a quality of life once you get to a leadership position (supervisor or above). The company may or may not go private in February, so uncertainty is looming in every store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose your teams carefully and give the people that work hard the credit they deserve. Leadership teams do not get the credit they deserve.
