    Pros

    Overall, I enjoy my job. It would be really hard to find a retail position that offered the benefits and pay that Best Buy does. The management is very flexible and receptive and they actually treat you like a person and not an anonymous underling.

    Cons

    The only cons I would mention would be the occasional issue with scheduling. Sometimes we are understaffed and its difficult to get the days off that you want when you need them.

    Advice to Management

    Cut loose the employees that are dragging the rest of us down. Their ruining morale and and they don't care, get rid of them.


  2. Great job if you are in high school or college, and a fun job if you have good management.

    Pros

    The coworkers you will encounter are very awesome and genuine. Great pay if you are working your way through school or just needing a part time job on the side. The knowledge you will gain is great and the customer interactions can be very rewarding, Employee discount is pretty solid as well.

    Cons

    Some of the management at my particular store didn't seem like they had a real desire to satisfy customers needs, instead they were more concerned about numbers or whether or not the employees looked busy.

    Advice to Management

    Look for more authentic and knowledgeable, personable managers.
