Current Employee - Cashier  in  Fairfax, VA
Current Employee - Cashier in Fairfax, VA

Pros

Technological environment, friendly atmosphere (at my store), nice people, competitive salary, etc.
Very fun if you're in high school, gives you many opportunities to have a nice time in an environment you might like.
The discount is also amazing, very good for anyone in high school or not.

Cons

Bad bosses, weird schedules, few hours. Sometimes things can get very busy and sometimes you'll be sitting around doing nothing all day. All depends on where you are.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I like it so far.

    Pros

    Contrary to popular belief, Best Buy is growing (focusing on their Best Buy Mobile Stores), which leaves you with 1) opportunity for advancement and 2) job security.

    Cons

    A ton of politics, constant system changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More employee empowerment!

    Pros

    Decent pay for the work I did, plus I got to talk about technology and help people understand technology better.

    Cons

    Some of the managers were a pain, but most were a pleasure to work with. There were cliques and if you weren't in one you could feel like an outsider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to micromanage and nit pick!
