Pretty Good

Computer and Tablet Spec Part-Time (Current Employee)
Garland, TX

I have been working at Best Buy

ProsGood supervisor and management for the most part.
Great Co-Workers
Overall fairly satisfied.

ConsWish there were more opportunity to advance
Wish there were commission based pay or higher hourly rate of pay. It's hard to make it on a rate of under 9 dollars an hour with only part-time hours. I would love to advance to full-time but I've been there for a year and no opportunity just yet...

Advice to Senior ManagementI wish management made it a point to share news of job openings and generate more full-time spots.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great seasonal job, but there are quite a few things that I didn't like

Seasonal Operations Representative (Cashier) (Former Employee)
Garland, TX

I worked at Best Buy

ProsGood Employee Discount on Accessories, Generous Discount on house-brand items (Dynex, RocketFish, Insignia, Init), Flexible Hours, Some Great Co-Workers, Pretty Good Management, Fun Environment to Work In, Great Customers that make your day, Awesome products to play with, Good break room at my location

ConsPoor discount on major items (Computers, TVs, Cameras), Mediocre compensation, Minimal Training, Pushing Attachments (Black Tie, Magazines, Reward Zone, Credit Card, HDMI Cables), Curmudgeon Customers, Customers that think they can ignore policy, Customers that pay with 20 low-value gift cards (I'm not kidding, it happened to me twice. Once during the holiday rush, and once after the holidays), Check Verification Policy (writing checks is slow enough already, add waiting for a manager to verify it), Co-workers that tell you the opposite of what management said

Advice to Senior ManagementIt wouldn't hurt to give more advice to employees along the way, instead of waiting until review time. Don't believe what other co-workers say without finding out for yourself. When laying off seasonal workers, don't treat them like they were only in it for the discount. Actually have the General Manager participate in the hiring process. If the GM didn't participate in the hiring process, I don't think they should be the one to lay you off. Lastly don't mention advancement for a seasonal applicant when the store is already at capacity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
