I have been working at Best Buy part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Decent pay, good discount, amazing coworkers, not an entirely strict / rigid work environment, personable managers who are willing to listen to your scheduling needs / concerns, not strict about tattoos and piercings (a lot of this might vary from store to store however)

Cons

Horribly rude and demanding customers, declining hours during non-holiday season, very high pressure during holiday season, re-org got rid of some great managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please figure out a proper business model and actually care about your employees, like you claim.

    Managers should always enforce company policies and expectations for all employees so there is no breakdown in operations.

    Pros

    The other people that you work with are great. they want to be good even if they aren't. However the best part is the customers, at least the ones who are willing to listen.

    Cons

    Pay, the store management is paid fairly, for the most part. they (the management) make a decent and livable wage. Every other Position in the store has a far to low pay cap. There is a lot of turn over because of the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you would be able to retain your best people and compete with online (cheaper) retailers by having the option of paying the better people what they are worth.
