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

    Pros

    Good Discount, lots of oppurtunities for growth and relocation.

    Cons

    Management does not care about the employees, which is the reason for a high turnover percentage. Pay is terrible, the amount of skill and knowledge required to perform at a reasonable level is insane. $9.50 an hour cannot be justified, the amount of sheer work that goes into some of these cell phone activations is ridiculous, I have spent more than 6 hours with customers for one activation, the managers in the store have no idea how to do it themselves, which make the mobile employees even more valuable. I made more money washing dishes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of the customer.
