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

Pros

Management genuinely cared about us, awesome experience helping give customers a better Christmas, bonuses were great, co-workers were great, training was of high quality. I didn't know a ton about cameras and mp3 players, but at the end of my seasonal employment, I knew what I was talking about with point and shoot cameras and most of the mp3 players. Maybe the best part of all was that Black Friday was actually fun and safe. It was very well organized.

Cons

I'll admit, it does take some time to gain adequate knowledge about the products you're attempting to sell. I was a seasonal employee and was let go after the Christmas season, but I wish I was kept. It could have done great things for my career.

Advice to Management

Try to give employees more ways to learn about products, but I don't think there's much advice I would give.

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

    Pros

    Great employee discount on merchandise, especially Rocketfish brand items. Fun work environment.

    Cons

    Seems the GM and some managers have their "favorites" which makes for a biased workplace environment

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and treat all employees the same
