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

    Pros

    Good pay, fun environment, bonus structure, rewarded for great customer interactions, reasonable hours and shifts. Best Buy is a great place for you first job or if you're looking to make a career. Pays well and has a lot of incentives for its employees. You also get to work in a "sales" environment as compared to a warehouse or stack it high let it fly mentality.

    Cons

    The only cons are it is retail which means working weekends, black Friday, and unruly customers. you will as a sales person be expected to make sales which is not for everybody. the company trains its supervisors and managers to drive sales and solutions, this isn't target it is Best Buy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication is key, most employees just want to be kept in the loop. Let there supervisors work with there own employees instead of asking them to train in other departments. If everybody takes care of there home the company will succeed.
