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

Pros

Managers and leads were always willing to help you better your position and performance. There was some mobility in departments and the management team was always willing to help employees find the right fit for themselves in the store.

Cons

None for the company itself; it's the customers you'll have to watch out for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more willing to let your sales associates switch shifts with each other.

    Pros

    The people: great bosses, great coworkers. Decent retail wages. Discount, part-timer benefits, vendor offers. Very socially active company, hires employees with tattoos and piercings, allows employees to express individual style. Comprehesive training. Internal hiring for higher positions.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. Hard to move up in rank without changing positions or stores often. No commission. Dealing with a LOT of dumb and/or frustrating people daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wonderful place to work! Please encourage more vendor accomodations. There were many more when i started than now.
