The managers don't really care about much, they just show up and hide most of the time that they are there.

I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

Pros

It is what you make of it, but don't expect anyone to really help you out. If you start to do good most of the managers will notice you and I kid you not

Cons

No one really cares about what you do. You don't get any type of training whatsoever. You just show up pretty much, everyone hates working there, even the managers, which would surprise most people as to how can people not like working selling technology to customers? It's one of the easiest jobs out there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should get new management, they should hire people who are suitable for the job, people who are excited to work and who are leaders, not managers who can barely walk, or walk with their cell on glued to their hands, while walking everywhere and not even looking up. From the moment she walks in to the moment she leaves she is on her cell phone no matter what. (this manager is the worst one I have ever seen.) Not even joking!!!

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

    Pros

    Excellent selling experience and capability to tailor solutions to consumer needs

    Cons

    When interviewing for the job, the interviewer made it seem more that the position was tailored towards the customer than towards generating corporate revenue. Every Saturday morning, my department sat down in the conference room, discussing margin goals and the past week's performance. The performance was always below target, because target is set exceptionally high. The managers really push the sale, and question you like an idiot when a customer decides not to purchase your computing solution after your initial recommendations. The training process is very minimal, which can be viewed as either positive or negative, depending on how quickly you like to get your feet wet in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as people, not as tools and resources
