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

    Pros

    Best buy works with my schedule very well. I work another job so i can only work certain hour and they give me the max that i can handle. If I need days off I almost always get them. Great benefits even for part time employees. I'm having a baby soon and they provide maternity/paternity leave. They pay for school. Good bonuses when we hit our mark. They offer 401k even for part time. Great discounts on most products. Fun environment if you like electronics.

    Cons

    They do push to sell. No commission. And as with any retail environment sh*t rolls downhill. Quotas are absurd when we don't earn a commission.

    Advice to Management

    Seeing as we don't get commission, the mood should be encouraging and light hearted to promote better performance from employees. Instead of getting upset and killing morale when the numbers aren't what you'd like to see.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Awesome campus/atmosphere. Lots of amenities. Fun, energetic mood and people. Culture of growth/development.

    Cons

    Although growth/development is promoted, budgets aren't fitted for growth or future-planning. Promotions will likely take forever. We also need to hire more of our contractors who want to work for Best Buy.

    Advice to Management

    Get your department budgets in order months in advance. Also, if you have a good contractor who's interested in a career at Best Buy, hire them. Find the money in your budget.

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

    Pros

    Can get a lot of hours if you're willing to work when they need you especially weekends, holidays, and on your days off

    Cons

    Schedule changes without warning and can impede on your plans if you haven't been alerted to the schedule change by management

    Advice to Management

    Alert employees when schedule is changed so they don't find out last minute

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice discount and very flexible with scheduling

    Cons

    Not much room for growth with the company, or at least not at my store. Have worked with the company for 8 years and have applied for multiple openings in leadership in the store, but it seems they have an agenda with who they'd like to have those positions.

    Advice to Management

    More room for growth with the company. Managers in stores are too biased and will play favorites with who they'd like in certain positions.

    Pros

    Fun environment, great management, decent pay. The employee discount is amazing on some items. Coworkers are usually like minded people.

    Cons

    None that I can really think of. Somewhat hard to move up. Very competitive work environment, but some people find competition fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
