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

Pros

Employee Discount about the coolest part of this position. Blue Polo?

Cons

Pay, Managers, Sales approach, weekend work. You will be scheduled every weekend and rarely get a Saturday or Sunday off. The pay is terrible for the type of value you are expected to contribute to the company. Management cares more about hitting sales goals than taking care of the customer. You are transformed into an insurance salesman because overpriced protection plans are the only thing keeping this dieing company afloat.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Pros

    As a recent graduate and aspiring photographer I enjoy most days at BB. I get to meet and teach a lot of photography enthusiast of all levels and nationalities.

    Cons

    Best Buy is more concerned with getting people to spend as much money as possible even if they can't afford it (e.i BB credit card) than with customer satisfaction and making sure the leave with what they really need/want.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
