Get out while you can

I'm happy about my bonus

I really don't understand people. It's like Best Buy can't win with some of you, no matter what they do. I'm getting an extra $500 I didn't count on. That's a good thing in my book! Yes, there'll be layoffs. But there's always layoffs and not just... —  read more

Best buy #578 victim

No care for employees that were affected. they are just motivating the part timers to become what we worked to be over the years. No care from higher ups. They just read whats on thier paper and tell you to get out. I'm pretty sure people who... —  read more

Are layoffs continuing?

Do we know yet if layoffs are continuing today and tomorrow or has everybody been notified already? I'm going to assume they're not planning to drag this out into the next week, but it's entirely possible it'll take a couple of days to let everybody... —  read more

What happened to this place?

It seems like Best Buy is not the same company it was a year or two ago. I don't know if this is just my experience, but it seems like we went from being an employee oriented place to a complete opposite. Instead of teamwork, now we have employees... —  read more
