    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Fun environment to work and talk. The discounts on some products are crazy and the time goes by pretty fast.

    Cons

    The number of hours you might work will be pretty low when it isnt holiday times. Sometime customers will buy something and bring it back saying how they didnt know it was going to be this complicated.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone works together and show great enthusiasm working with what they love (tech). You get the chance to learn about new upcoming technology items and experience some of them first hand. The discount was nice.

    Cons

    Sometimes it may seem like there wasn't much work to do yet you would be pressured to do something even if you finished a whole week's worth of work in a day.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance, discount, company stability, fun environment

    Cons

    Annual pay raise at the service center is very low making it hard to keep up with rising living costs.

    Advice to Management

    More accountability and more opportunities to grow career would be appreciated. Also, the annual pay scale is hard to break out of once your initial pay is set.

    Pros

    well structured and passionate employees.

    Cons

    Has some seemingly archaic systems to work with. Have seen quite a bit of favoritism.

    Pros

    Making customer shopping visit enjoyable, providing answers to customer quickly and effectively over the phone, selling product over the phone, and releasing store pickup items to customers and answering any questions they may have.

    Cons

    Unfortunately not receiving the hourly rate deserved for all the time and effort put into work, going above and beyond and not being recognized. No appreciation towards employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to employees, recognize the employees for their hard work, and look over some employees hourly pay and give what is deserved

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    15% bonuses if we meet our goal as a store 30% if we exceed 100%. Other departments get smaller bonuses and extremely flexible with your hours. they offer tuition reimbursement and employee discounts. I can honestly say that best buy is a good business to work for.

    Cons

    none complaints so far. this place does as much as it can for it's employees

    Advice to Management

    haven't been with the company long enough to complain or see any negatives just positive things about it.
