I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than an year)

Pros

My stores worked around your classes pretty well, paid better than almost any other retail store around. Most everyone there was pretty fun, its a good environment but like most stores a few bad managers can ruin that.

Cons

If you work on the sales floor they put a lot of pressure on you to sell insurance and other things that IMO are not such fantastic services. You can get in trouble for not always offering them.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Lots of help getting started. Plenty of paid training online. They encourage a team atmosphere. Great stepping stone into the IT industry. Good discount and flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Technologically sheltered customers who are frustrated and can be difficult to deal with. Good people skills and patience is a must! Full time is hard to get. Multiple people working on the same job/desk can be difficult with unfinished work/poor quality work from the previous shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More hands on leadership training for supervisor positions.
