I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

-High value of employees
-Structured training programs
-Reasonable work hours
-Provides a wide array of relevant transferable skills
-Generous employee discounts

Cons

Overall, about what you would expect from a retail electronics company. The patience of everyone around you, including management, is tested on a semi-regular basis with regards to customer traffic and conflict. Also, the holiday times are a bit intense as expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to feedback from part-time employees; their opinions are important as well.
