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

    Pros

    - Monthly bonus on revenue + GREAT discount on product
    - Work/life balance is great (minus holiday season)
    - Constant product/sales training
    - Personal and professional growth
    - One of the best resume builders you can have
    - 100% focused on the employee

    Cons

    - Long hours during holidays
    - Internal advancement is proving to be rather difficult, but not impossible
    - Certain duties can be tasking ie: 6 AM audits, cross department selling etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micro-management (when its not actually necessary), One-on-One reviews NEED to be monthly.

    Pros

    Discount is good for employees but they hold it over your head. Past that the people you work with are great and you can have fun.

    Cons

    everything else, Management is rude and talk to you like you are dog. They are on power trips. They give you no hours and pay is less then what you can make working at walmart

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fix you front line problems before your gone
