I worked at Best Buy part-time for less than a 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.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They do have opportunities for improvement

    Cons

    Best Buy is only worried about Best Buy there employees they care very little about now that their sales are going down do to the economy. They want you to oversell everyone but still advise them on the best options which is impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a better corporate structure

    Fun, but Politics will always get you where you want or keep you where you started out.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Fun place to work, given the right supervisors (I have seem good and bad ones come and go)
     - Scheduling if you are on the good side of said good managers....you will get the hours.

    Cons

    - If you are on the bad side of managers.....poor hours (I am seeing this right now with some people I work with)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within on your good employees, I see too many of them go from being mistreated.
