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

Pros

Hours are good, depending on what department you work in. Co workers are all very friendly managers are pretty cool, very laid back atmosphere.

Cons

The money is weak, you will most likely start off as a part timer. Always negotiate for more money in your initial interview process when you get that third interview.
Its very who knows who. If you want to move up, you have to know someone, and even then they'll play favorites. They make a lot of decisions that don't really make a lot of sense and the store hurts for it.
All they care about are the numbers. Percent of Margin, How many brand of payments, whats your CSI scores are. What your pick time is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions that are logical. Don't just throw someone into a full time spot where they have 0 experience just because they threaten to quit.

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

    Pros

    Great employee discounts on accessories. Those few repeat customers. Learning about new products and actually getting to play with the product.

    Cons

    Work ethic is not required. Hard to take it seriously. Management sure plays favorites and makes some feel less important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you set expectations, follow through on those expectations.
