Best Buy Co., Inc. Maternity Leave Comments

  • "There are opportunities available for advancement, but while many upper-level management say that they value diversity, actions speak louder than words. I have personally worked under 3 female general managers in 7 stores, 2 of which are no longer with the company. Most of the management team members that I encounter are white men. Generally speaking, Best Buy is good at burning through management, but that does not seem to be discriminatory. I have felt pressure when asking off for vacation time, or sick days that are legitimately needed. I have not yet taking maternity leave, but I suspect that I will feel the same when if and when i do while working for this company. Overall, the benefits are good, and the company offers a variety of options. There are a number of financial benefits to working for Best Buy which I would sorely miss if I do end up leaving for a different opportunity. My current experience has left me feeling tired, and wanting, but not in every situation and not every store if you are looking at retail store level. The pay is extremely competitive, and at one time, I knew that I was the highest paid hourly manager at my level, above several of my male counter-parts." - Madam YoungAtHeart
