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

    Pros

    Employee discount is awesome on certain products, very flexible with scheduling, fair pay for the level of work you do, fun environment and great managers (depending on the people you actually work with), bonus pay incentive if store exceeds revenue goal

    Cons

    Gets boring once in a while when there aren't customers, you are paid hourly wages but you are pushed to sell like a commissioned worker with few incentives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall great management from my store. Individual bonuses would really be a great thing. This way, employees would have a reason to sell more and hit daily goals rather than sit around and talk or be unproductive.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with. The benefits are great if you are full time.

    Cons

    I came when they were paying very little and now that I've been here for awhile they upped the pay and new people are now getting a dollar more than me. The management is horrible.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, great discount, good experience, and the ability to work with and play with the latest and greatest electronics on the market. There are some really good managers out there too. If you like sales and your into the industry, this is a great job!

    Cons

    While the pay is pretty decent, I've had my struggles with trying to get raises, even at a time when you are actually supposed to get one with the company. Sometimes you see managers that aren't really fully knowledgeable and understand what they are selling/doing. Then again, there are some managers that are great. There are a lot of people their that don't care about their job and honestly, don't even try or give it some effort, and nothing really ever happens to them. Moving up in the company is a little more difficult than one would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick better managers, Fully train your staff on what they are selling/expected to do, and hold employees more accountable to their actions.

    Can be flexible at times. They usually start new employees above minimum wage. The discounts are AWESOME!

    The company is restructured very often, management is constantly changing and customers can be extremely demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are properly staffed and hold employees accountable for being late.
