    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    Chance to bonus monthly, which can end up being an extra 100-200 dollars

    Cons

    During the holiday season, hours can be long, and shifts can often seem as very un-flexible. However, this is expected during a retail stores holiday season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider being a little less aggressive in the goal setting for employees

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are a huge plus. All the managers are cool. Very fun and challenging day by day.

    Cons

    Average pay for a ton of work. But the longer you work there the less work you'll do and higher pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the interview process better somehow. It's longer than most companies and more of a headache.

    - Great people to work with

    Cons

    - Hard to get noticed
    - Some employees hired do a poor job, which make your numbers suffer
    - Very few full time jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open more full time positions for people with the right qualifications. Especially for people who do a way better job than those with full time employment.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I started at Best Buy as seasonal and have worked my way up. There is tremendous opportunity for growth. The company is committed to its employees and has great ways to reward them. You can earn points to spend on merchandise in the store or even from a catalog of external items. Bonuses are great!! Each employee has an opportunity to bonus, earning them almost $1 an hour more.

    Cons

    The hours. Since it is retail, you are not working a traditional 9-5.
