I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pay was so-so, had ok co-workers. The employee discount was great until they took that away.

Cons

Forced to regularly work past your scheduled shifts. They sell hard meaning they will sell customers things they do not need and you better keep your mouth shut about it. Being in installations I was setup up on a frequent basis to fail and be put in harms way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to what worked. Empower the people again and have them sell like they are paid hourly and not sell like they are 100% commission

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the time I worked at Best Buy it seemed like there was plenty of upward mobility if you were willing to put in the time. Everyone I worked with was very close-knit and it was a great store at the time.

    Cons

    Unfortunately by the time I was let go as a seasonal employee due to school, the company was changing. It was becoming highly revenue driven and didn't feel the same as it did when I first started.
