    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hours aren't too bad. Discount is nice. Good as a job for stepping stone on your way to something else.

    Cons

    Management that constantly revolves. Lack of vision and competence at store level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote talent. Fire more supervisors and managers when they can't do their job.

    Former Employee - Geek Squad, Agent (CIA) in Colonial Heights, VA

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

    Pros

    A paycheck.
    Notice down below how I marked work/life balance as 5 stars; this is because they scheduled me SO LITTLE that I had nothing but time on my hands.

    Cons

    Constantly cutting hours
    Horrible pay
    Too much sales pressure
    Annoying management
    Rude/condescending customers
    Some of the coworkers were very moody, easily frustrated, and "friendly fired" on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop harassing employees about making sales, they are trying! It seems like they see numbers instead of human beings.

    Negative Outlook
