Pros

Employees are great to work with, as well as managers.

Cons

Managers keep AP as an afterthought and do not put emphasis on the position until something bad happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that as a technology retail store, there will always be people trying to steal your product, so put more energy into the position.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Rockville, MD

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

    Pros

    You can develop valuable transferable communication skills, get discounts on products, are surrounded by a lot of cool gadgets, meet some interesting customers

    Cons

    High sales pressure for little benefit (no commission, very difficult to bonus), management was rarely knowledgable about products, inconsistent policies (e.g. constantly having to change department layout based on preferences of particular managers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward good behavior, don't just focus on punishing poor performance. Learn a little more about what products you carry so the training process isn't totally do-it-yourself.
