    Pros

    Clean stores, friendly managers, discount, getting to teach customers how to use the technology they were buying, and it was a lot of fun.

    Cons

    I did not get as many hours as I would have liked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep chasing kids who run off with CDs.

    A good job, but in the end it is still just retail.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Discount, 5% above cost. Work with new technology. Vendor accomodations. If your fulltime, health insurance, vacation, sick and paid time off. If I remember correctly part time can get 401k as well, stock options, etc. I work in car audio install so I get to avoid much of the hassles of sales. But we deal with it on a different level. If the company listened to us installers things could be so much better.

    Cons

    Its retail. Management is hit or miss. Many are highered from outside from places like home depot so their electronics knowledge can be lacking. Some employees do not care about the company but most so dispute what most customers would say. No weekends off, work holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher from within, mold your employees into management.
