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

Pros

-Great employees
-Relaxing Environment
-Meeting International customers

Cons

-Customers can be very rude
-Customer Experience Worksheets(If you don't fill them out, you'll be written up!)
-Management could be more helpful
-Hours are cut ridiculously short for part-time employees, after the holidays
-Unrealistic expectations in sales. Especially for "cold" departments such as mobile electronics (600 dollars an hour?)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop making Geek Squad the main percent in the scoring reports. Give your workers more recognition for their hard-work.

    Pros

    You get to help a lot of people and they appreciate the knowledge and solutions offered.
    You become friends with a lot of co workers and that makes for a fun environment.
    You learn alot about the business side of Best Buy and how retail management works.

    Cons

    Compensation does not match skills and knowledge
    Sometimes you click with management and unfortunately sometimes you don't
    Alot of times its just you with no help from anyone helping multiple people at one time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Building relationships with employees are key. Those relationships are just as important as building relationships with clients/customers.
