I worked at Best Buy as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

*The pay is wonderful! If you're entry level, $10 an hour is something special.
*Great staff; do not distract them when they are busy, however.
*Because it was the holiday season, they often spoiled us with food. Trust, that's big when you're busy all day long working long shifts.

Cons

*Although the pay is great, they hire so much help you get little hours unfortunately. I suppose that's how they balance their pay.
*The occasional rude or bizarre customer, but that's just retail territory.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more often! Hiring once a year is madness. Expand your regular workforce a bit as well, it's kind of awkward seeing one cashier handling crowds.

    Managers always seem like they are scared for their jobs here... And it can show through their micromanagement.
