Frankly, I can't see fault in this decision even if I do feel for all the people who will be laid off as a result of this. Most of the people who buy things here have a regular Best Buy close enough that this will not result in losing their business... read more
Just found out that one of the merchant analysts had a career in adult films while in college. Why in the hell she used her real name is puzzling. Private Society Kansas City. Initials are MM.
164 stores closing in 2018. It's under shared documents for those of you with a corporate laptop. Check it out before they move it.
Do not worry too much, I am one of those who is always optimistic - things will pan out good and we will not have layoffs here in Richfield.
Best Buy is closing two more stores, so the carnage continues. Inver Grove Heights store and one of Blaine stores (the location off of Highway 65.) Both stores will close at the start of October... read more
Not really surprising, but more Best Buy stores are closing. This time it's Auburn store at the end of October. I know we have been holding on better than most, but this is starting to become scary. Nearly 30 people at the store will be looking for... read more
Corporate came in tonight and announced the Wentzville, MO store is closing (but don't tell the customers or they won't buy the extended warranty). They say the rent is increased and tired of fighting with the landlords! This location has beaten... read more
They are not giving us other jobs, we have to reapply, as if, we were new employees. And most of the jobs are part time sales, in store. So if you were making $18 hr fixing computers, you have to apply, if accepted, go through an interview for $9 hr... read more

So, Best Buy is eliminating 400 positions and offering those workers other jobs...I am just wondering how many will be able to move to accept those new positions, and how many will just end up out of a job after all... But at least they have the... read more
I'm getting reports from Agents that layoff calls are happening now. Apparently jobs are going to Puerto Rico.
Best Buy to rehire, restaff solar project team a year after eliminating the positions. Labor force to be increased by 2100 jobs at a full time capacity. Territory staff sees move as positive to the look and feel of the stores as quality of... read more
Corporate attributes the closing to several things. The blame high rent, changing shopping patterns etc. I just think it is more of Hubert cutting jobs without regard to local circumstances. If you work at a small market Best Buy.... BEWARE!!!! You... read more
Anyone else see where this is heading... Tommy Millner, now CEO of Cabela's, has a history of taking over companies that soon come up for sale: First company (Pilliod Cabinet Company) - sold to Ladd Furniture:... read more
My husband is working for the company and he's very concerned that job cuts might be coming and that he may lose his job. He works in Richfield.
Been with Best Buy for over 15 years now, I can tell you that I have seen both ups and downs with Best Buy. Each time we get to a spot that seems to work, we change (sometimes good or bad). I hate seeing people leave but I have to say a lot of times... read more
Been working in sales for 5 years (in IL now) and I’m sick of this culture. If you are going to push us to sell everything to everyone than at least be fair and put us on commission. Not that it would boost sales, though Best Buy struggles because of... read more

On a store level it all so depends on your GM and how well connected he or she is and how much they fight for the store. In my case, I went trough 5 GM's little over 3 years - now pause and think about it - 5 GMs...! On work-life-balance as some... read more
The way this company handles business makes it very unstable. I realize that it is difficult to compete these days, especially with Amazon, but this constant restructures and downgrading drive away all the good managers and employees. With work-life... read more
So, as far as I know, store in Topsham (about 40 people), two stores in Baltimore area (more than 100 jobs), and the one in Lawrence (60 people) to be closed soon. That's more than 200 people to be sacked, with the lame excuse that all of them can... read more
Best Buy just needs to close, they don't treat people well and the type of store that they are is now obsolete.
Does anyone have any details on if bestbuy is going to restructure or not . I know they just laid off lots of geek squad people, but I have a feeling that more are on the way
So.....best buy decided to delete all day time project team positions as of May 1, 2016, to the tune of 450-600 employees. So this is just FANTASTIC, in the most sarcastic way possible. Project Team was created to do what the store could not. Which... read more
As an employee who has worked at bestbuy for the past 9 years in the retail operations, this was the worst Holiday Season I have seen. I install HT systems currently. The stores in my area bombed this year. Don't believe any positive spin. People are... read more
CNBC believes we will rebound: /
What is the likelihood of Best Buy layoffs in Richfield in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Best Buy is so low on the places to work tottem pole no one even trolls this site. It is sad what happened to this place in the last 5 years. Run away.
Seriously, if we were to have yet another cut I am not sure who would do work. With this being said, I think we'll have an OK 2015 FY, but things might get much softer if the Fed starts to increase interest rates and the whole economy stalls. Let's... read more
I am with Target (Merchandising) and I was wandering if you are hiring right now?
Do you have the list with stores closing next year? I heard California will be hit hard.
We are bleeding resources, that's not good.
Does someone have a list of Best Buy stores that will close this year? Or, if you have the list that will cover 2015 that'd be good as well. I appreciate it in advance.
We are cutting around 2000 managers, cutting deep and to the bone - we will pay for this dearly as most of the knowledge is with the folks who are being let go. We are not going to be able to survive this crisis without experienced staff so this is... read more
i hear about reorg at the corporate level, this will result in layoffs
Best Buy Canada is planing to layoff about 1000 people duo to other store competition. Last year they shut 15 stores. 2014 doesn't look good.
You'll be treated like a number only and nobody at Best Buy will care about you. Forget any training and if you need experience this is not a place for you as things are getting worse every day and you'll get very little training. Layoffs are... read more
2014 will be an interesting year for Best Buy from downloadbesttorrentblog.ru perspective. Our numbers keep going down and our digital and online strategy is simply poor. You can expect that both Corporate and Stores will be hit throughout the year. I hear that... read more
