    Current Geek Squad DCI in Minneapolis, Minnesota

    Great health benefits including vision, dental, and health. Also has tuition reimbursement, 401K, stock options, 2 weeks PTO, and accruing vacation throughout the year.

    Only problem is that it is tough to take time off from September-January, as well as weekends during non holiday times

    Best- accommodations. Worst- healthcare is expensive nada increases yearly by 40-100 dollars a year.

    Lots of good discounts on many products, but sadly not Apple which I would have liked to get an Ipad/Macbook to understand them better so that I could really up sell them to customers and show them it's features to fully.

    As Part-Time, there are a certain amount of hours worked that is needed before receiving a list of benefit offers from HR in the mail. For me, it took about 8 months to get paid leave, medical, and sick days.

    Obviously the discount is great (5% above cost), 401k was fine, never got their insurance, employee stock program is useless (why would you want Best Buy stock at this point?), and the tuition assistance was actually very good. The worst thing was that you didn't start accruing vacation time until you were full-time for one year.

    It cost too much money for the darn health insurance

    Former Employee in San Francisco, California

    I believe the discounts were nice, but management was disorganized.

    The discount! Oh, the discount. Magnificent. Also, health/vision/dental/401k/employee stock purchase were all very good. Biggest complaint was it was almost impossible to get time off to use your vacation time (no one would approve it!), you couldn't cash it out, and it capped out at a certain point so you couldn't continue to accumulate more. That should have been illegal.
