I worked at Best Buy

Pros

Job was laid-back, easy to follow instructions. I also learned about technology and new products a lot.

Cons

The hours are sometimes late, as more people shop at night. Not very flexible comes holiday time

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    very flexible with scheduling, fun atmosphere, and really friendly people to work with. We did a lot of out of work group activities. And they always hire full timers and supervisors or mangers from with in the company,almost never from outside hires. They have a good tuition assistance program if you are full time.

    Cons

    Obviously working with the public is tough, you have to have a thick skin. Customers will be rude and nasty to you and you just have to smile and take it. Management is good about siding with the employee if the customer is being outrageous, but most of the time the customers that are jerks to you are going to get exactly what they want when they complain to a manger. So you have to be able to deal with that. Also the holidays will be a terrible time of year for you if you work here, You will dread Thanksgiving and Christmas.

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

    Pros

    Had great managers that were nice but pushed sales, my co-workers were cool which made going to work easier, management allowed me to work areas that interested me

    Cons

    Managers pushed sales a great deal, you need to be extremely extroverted to be a good retail employee, the pay isn't good considering how many different areas I had to go into

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers at my store were great, maybe a little more flexible on hours
