I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

This is a very proactive and adaptable company. Many opportunities to give back in the community as well. The entire team was very close-knit and socialized well outside of work. The culture within the big blue box was typical of a well to do, enthusiastic retail team.

Cons

The particular store I worked at was not very diverse or well off in advancement opportunities. I was personally passed over so that senior management could diversify the department even though the candidates were not well qualified, which was unfortunate for everyone involved in the end.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Being more personal with advancement and improvement is a plus. I felt very lumped with my peers when I was above average.

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

    Pros

    amazing work environment, awesome all around, good sups and managers, very chilled and relaxed, they work around you. opportunity to grow is big, and it was one of the best jobs i have ever had.

    Cons

    i was only seasonal so no benefits, cashiers have the pressure of selling GSP (geek squad protection) but that would be it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please tell the seasonal employees when they are no longer needed dont just stop putting them on the schedule, it sucks!
