Best buy was a great job for the first year for me, with a mature environment and great employees. The benefits were pretty good and they set you up in nice manor. The management was very friendly to me and always were pretty flexible with my schedule and out of work life. My only complaint i had was the culture was very competitive, but to the point were some employees were very judgmental, especially sales employees. I was a wear house employee, so i wasn't involved in the numbers and sales aspect of the store, but i took interest with taking time to help any customer in need, which helped me learn sales tactics on my own, just due to experience with customers. Advancement was very minimal, i only had one raise because i was with the company for a year and its was only 50 cents, and i felt like i was a hard working employee, but i never was demanding, because i kept to myself most of the time. The hardest part of the job was defiantly the inventory truck days, were all our new stock would come in, very physically demanding. The least enjoyable parts of the job were the days i struggled to find a task, which involved doing small tasks over an 8 hour period which would make the shift feel unproductive. Best defiantly matured me as a worker, as i grew with great employees over the year i was with them.
Good benefits, Mature employees
Overly competitive, Minimal Tasks Often
