09 Nov: Military Veterans Bring Unique Experiences to Best Buy

While service to their country is the common ground veterans share, their diverse backgrounds and personal journeys all stand uniquely apart — and that’s especially true when they reintegrate into the civilian workforce.

At Best Buy, we embrace the skills and perspectives veterans bring. Their impact can be found at every level of our company, and we’re committed to providing resources to support them and help them grow in their careers.

For Veterans Day, we’re highlighting the journeys of several former servicemen and women and celebrating the experiences and leadership they bring to Best Buy.

With a new school year starting, Best Buy recently bid farewell to its largest, most diverse class of summer interns.

21 Jun: Found at Best Buy: new career and a dream come true

Cheri Howard had it all. A beautiful family, boundless ambition and a great job with a Nebraska police department.

She thought she would retire as the department’s commander of front-end operations and see her kids off to college. But then a merger happened, and she lost her job of 26 years.

“It was debilitating, honestly,” she said. “For a while, I felt like a fish out of water. I did not have a clear path and wondered if I was going to be able to survive it.”

10 Nov: Military Veterans Find New Careers at Best Buy


When Sam Messenheimer left the Marine Corps, he found it difficult to transition to civilian life. Many prospective employers didn’t understand his military jargon or how his skills would translate to a new role.

Then he interviewed at Best Buy, where the leaders showed an interest in his military experience and took the time to understand how it could translate to responsibilities within the company.

The rest, as they say, is history. Sam, who started as a part-time asset protection specialist, now serves as an assistant manager in North Carolina.
