    Pros

    Really friendly work atmosphere. I love the people I work with and look forward to seeing them each and every day I'm working.

    Cons

    Sometimes things just aren't always so great if you know what I mean. Sometimes I just don't feel like working but I have to do it anyway. That's life.

    Advice to Management

    my advice to management would be to try and get to know more people that work under you and what life is like for them

    Work with a lot of great people. Fun environment to work in because it is very face paced. Opportunity to advance

    I worked at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Working at Best Buy Mobile provided a family atmosphere, Your coworkers had your back. You really enjoyed going to work. Customers loved the business model. New way to buy cellphones.

    Cons

    On order to really advance a lot of times you had to be willing to move stores and/or relocate all together. That is not feasible for a family with young kids but that is typical in retail world.

    Pros

    Excellent employee discount policy, understanding regarding taking time off, well paid for the type of work. Enjoyed my time there as much as one can for a part time warehouse job

    Cons

    Training was very poor, consisted of basically shadowing an experienced employee for part of a day while he did his normal work, and of shadowing a similarly new employee for a few days

    Advice to Management

    Improve training procedures, combine e-learnings with a more robust hands on training experience. Have employees come in late/early on one day and have managers take them through every computerized portion of the job
