I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Greenville, NC Store #386 is based in a college town so it has a very young, active employee base with many of the employees hanging out outside of work. The store pushes a team motto and does a lot of extra curricular events outside of work, ie awareness walks and community events. Monthly all-store meetings started with hilarious videos and prizes for top sellers, ie gadgets or company stock.

Cons

The employees and management has a high turn-over rate as managers shuffle to different stores trying to work their way up the ladder. It can make for an inconsistant work experience. Some managers will play with part-timer's hours to keep them just under full-time, ie 39 hours a week leading to inconsistent hours for part-timers, ie 15-18 hours one week, 39 the next week. Everyone fights for full-time positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work at Store #386 WALK THE PLANK!

    Great first job, not much too it. Just sell attachments and things that get you notional margin and you'll do fine.

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

    Pros

    One of the best things was the discount and the openness of the management. The discount isn't the greatest on many of the larger items like laptops and TV's, but on services and accessories, you got rewarded big time. And the education about tech was awesome.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a little too much pressure about selling the right things, other than that if you can't work Black Friday, you might as well consider yourself without a job.
