  • Employee

Company culture

Nothing great, yet nothing too bad.

Support from Management

Great at talking up their commitment but poor with any follow up or follow through on their end.

Teamwork

My "team" is a small group of individuals who seem to only care about themselves getting out so they can gi do whatever else they do.

Level of Autonomy

N/A

Communication

Is non existent between co-workers

Gender Equality

All about keeping up their appearance as a leader in that aspect.

Company culture

Culture is too competitive and only cares about numbers rather than the customers needs and teamwork.

Support from Management

Management's expectations are implausible and they expect new, untrained employees to be able to do things perfectly. The constant fear of being fired over a simple mistake looms overhead as management only wants to look out for themselves. They also do not respect the opinion of employees and change significant things without their input.

Eco-consciousness

Best Buy has always been a recycler of electronics

Work-Life Balance

I felt pressured working hours over what my schedule said making conflict happen frequently

Challenging Work

Your doing merchandising or unloading off a truck.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More communication from store managers to employees would be nice.

What I like about the company

It has displays of everything they sell so you can see before you buy.
