I have been working at Best Buy full-time

Pros

Employee discount is great. We get everything in the store at cost plus 5%

Cons

Sometimes it can be irritating. Mostly due to leadership.

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

    Pros

    Employee Discount was decent, usually just on accessories.

    Cons

    I worked seasonal so that may have been why I was treated so terribly but older staff would be lazy and push their work onto the new staff, I found myself picking up other peoples slack and even covering more than 2 departments at the same time, I was supposed to be one of four people in the media.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better.

    Pretty good pay, friendly co-workers, but pressure and restrictive scheduling let it down a bit.

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

    Pros

    - You start at more than minimum wage, which was good for me coming in with no retail experience
    - The job has it's rewarding moments, you have a lot of freedom to dictate the flow with your customers
    - Consistent hours, was never found lacking for shifts

    Cons

    - Terrible scheduling, was always two weeks in advance and my supervisor was very inflexible about switching shifts
    - Undue pressure to sell service plans, management pays lip service to the experience but focuses too much on the bottom line
    - Standarized sales process which can be too inflexible and time-consuming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible about things, and focus on the experience first to start turning around the negative perception people have about the store
