    Definitely not for someone with other commitments ... or team players.

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

    Pros

    The pay was alright, and the training was comprehensive ... when we were allowed to complete it. As a retail veteran, having dedicated Asset Protection agents to help keep an eye on the floor is helpful (particularly when the floorplan is not conducive to having your eye on everything at once).

    Cons

    Scheduling management is NOT willing to work around other commitments you have ... for anyone looking for a job while you're attending school: stay away. Managers throw new associates on the floor prior to having completed their training and frequently leave them with no one else in the section to back them up, setting newcomers up to fail. You rely on radio communications which frequently go ignored if you are a newcomer as well, and management does nothing to rectify any of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job, frankly. Associates should COMPLETE training before being allowed on the floor, should have someone to shadow while they learn how things are done, and everyone regardless of seniority should have the tools they need to do their job properly -- including the security in knowing that if they call for backup, it will answer on the radio (even if it's just to say "I'm with a customer, hold on!"). Honor promises to take availability into account and be up-front if the availability is a problem. Let's waste as little of people's time as we can, yes?
