"My experience at Best buy has given me a desire and drive to continue improving myself."

Best Buy Employee

"It can be fun and has great benefits and the discount is awesome. Hard time finding mentors or anyone to help train or move up for that matter. They don't seem to care about furthering you in any type of career that is fulfilling and worth while. The gap between entry level and any type of leadership has been stretched more and more over the years to make it incredibly difficult to move up."

"I worked with bestbuy since I was 17. When I turned 18 I joined the army and came back to bestbuy after getting out in 2019. Overall it’s a solid company for someone who loves learning and loves tech. The work environment is not toxic and very welcoming."

"This job is a great place to start if you’re really into tech and a nerd for electronics like I was. The management is not that good as I feel like and most of my coworkers felt that they don’t care much about their current employees. But overall if you have a good relationship with your managers like I did they will help you out but if you’re there just to work and not connect much with managers they will neglect you and not help you out much with things like time off and just working overall."
