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.

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

    Pros

    I got to talk to customers about things I'm interested in.
    Sometimes had cookouts and played games.

    Cons

    Managers are all rude. Every single one of them. They don't know how to lead or communicate. Very condescending and they don't know how to do anything that they ask you to do. Always a mixed message. One day you're not allowed to do something and then the next day they're coming down on you for the very thing they told you not to do. More interested in numbers than sales associates or customers. Definitely no room for advancement. They make a lot of promises but there is always a catch to it. Working there gave me the hives.

    Pros

    The discounts on in house brand items were fine
