Best Buy has been the best company I have had the opportunity to be employed. My managers, supervisors, co-workers, and customers provides a sense of pride, value, and appreciation of being an employee. The challenges, district competitions, and rewards we receive for being stupendous employees makes you enjoy the environment, the people around you, and actually makes you want to come to work everyday. Best Buy also has great opportunities and benefits for our employees as well! Full/Part time insurance and benefits, tuition assistance and scholarships, paid time off, flexible scheduling, employee value, easy opportunities for promotions, etc!
Best Buy is truly an awesome company with awesome coordinators, CEOs, CFOs, managers, and employees!
I love Best Buy and will forever be grateful to be employed by such an awesome company!
Thank you Hubert Joly for your everything you have brought, provided, and done for the company!

A somewhat fast-pace work environment considering we service thousands of customers orders and needs daily so I wouldn't say this was a totally "Parent friendly" place to work with it's high demand and longer work day seasons. As a Quality Assurance Administrator, I ensure the accuracy of our inventory as well as the dollar amount on hand within our building. Some of the challenges that newer employees can face is the lack of a universal employee training. I really enjoy the different perks such as tuition reimbursement as well as the employee discount! There is definitely room for promotion based off of the skills you acquire, experience, and how well you adapt and learn from challenges as they arise daily. There are times where the management team is willing to accommodate schedules, but it depends on the season since we do tend to get much busier around the holidays. All in all, working for this company has turned out to be an amazing experience both personally and professionally!
I've been working for Best Buy for almost four years. I started as part-time, but after being with the company for less than a year, I was given the opportunity to go full-time. Initially, I looked into Best Buy because I knew I had interests in technology, and after being offered an interview and a position, I came to find that Best Buy offers very good compensation, even with those who don't have as much relative experience as others. In comparison to other retail locations, I'd say that Best Buy offers some of the best starting pay. Best Buy gave me all of the training that I needed to succeed, and they prioritize their employees to the fullest. You're offered paid time off, tuition assistance, health insurance, pet insurance, etc. I stepped down to be a seasonal employee as I've now transferred to a new school full-time, but I do hope to stay with the company as long as possible!
