Pros

Great people to work with in a great work environment. Almost everyone gets along and those who don't aren't around very long. Benefits available for part time including an excellent employee discount, medical and 401k.

Cons

Not enough full time hours available during the slow seasons. Must be willing to move around to different stores for advancement and can take a long time.

Advice to Management

Accountability, there isn't enough at the store level.

    Pros

    Very fast paced work environment, definitely a sales position and don't fool yourself for a second if you think you won't be selling. Great place to work for students, as they offer competitive tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    As the company declines financially they are applying more pressure on their sales people to sell more items to customers rather than focus on decent customer service. I have had many customers tell me off the bat they would like to not be offered any type of warranty service and yet by not offering I could lose my job.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, hiring external candidates does not give the talent within your store a chance to become something more. Also focus less on shoveling things down peoples throats and more on making Best Buy a leaner company. What I mean by this is reduce overhead and focus on the products that are profitable as apposed to trying to make all of your margin on warranties, services, and over priced accessories.
