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

    Pros

    Relatively okay salary for my education, flexible work hours, fast paced environment, plenty of learning experiences, frequent team-building exercises and events.

    Cons

    Exploited my knowledge without just compensation, hired me for one job but gave me the bait-and-switch for a part-time job, and absolutely no advancement opportunities in 3 years. Regularly took me away from my job to help other departments and reprimanded me when my job couldn't be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. I tried every approach to improve the system, but nobody took me seriously. Instead of letting me teach the other departments how to improve themselves, they wanted me to do both jobs, and when one failed I was to blame. This isn't management, this is scat-throwing. If there's a problem you aren't addressing, and people aren't allowed to help, you're killing morale and teamwork.
