    The benefits of working here are pretty nice especially the employee discount and that you gain so much product knowledge about all the newest technology. It feels like i am in a toy store for adults

    Once you are in a full-time position the tuition reimbursement policy is awesome. $3,500 a year for undergraduate work and even more for post-graduate work

    Great employee discount. 5% Above cost of the item which is fantastic for a lot of items and OK for others. Insurances is decent as well as the time off. 401k is full match for your first 3% and half match for the the next 2%. Basically they match 4% to your 5%.

    Great health, dental and vision insurance through great providers. The company stock purchase plan is great because Best Buy will patch your contributions up to 5%. As a full timer you get started with a set of PTO and Sick Time as soon as you become full-time. Monthly bonuses are given monthly if store hits budget.

    Worst thing would have to be, you have to be full time to get most of the benefits, which is most jobs so it's about average.

    It really really really really really was a week package. The bonuses are sporadic and sometimes you were gypped out of them also I think that there wasn't a 401(k).

    Health insurance was pretty expensive. They offer 401k to full time. Part time does not get any vacation or sick time. Full time doesn't get "vacation" it's PTO. You get 7 days the first year and it slowly grows the longer you work there.

    I am appreciative of having a benefit package that offers health insurance, vacation and 401K, but since the issue of insurance exploding in cost for everyone the health benefits just seem mediocre. I appreciate the time off most of all.

    For full time employees they offer benefits but they barely offer full time positions. You have to super fight to get them.
