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.

    Enjoyable atmosphere but high pressure for sales.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for part time and good discounts. Was treated very well by management and other workers. Provided very good sales training.

    Cons

    New hires aren't taught anything about the product but only how to up sell the customer. Managers did apply a lot of pressure to make the up sell rather than make the customers experience pleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a former employee and customer I recommend that you make the customer experience more enjoyable rather than the only focus being warranties. I do understand thats how the most money is made but its better to have repeat customers.

    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
