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

Pros

Very fun atmosphere
Get very detailed good training
Learn a lot about selling and communication

Cons

Managers make it feel commission orientated
Most managers yell a lot when having a slow day
Very low salary pay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay employees more and motivate them to sell yelling does not make us happy to sell
Keep employees actively involved by training when slow not yelling

Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    benefits were good, employee discount is always nice, lots of training through the computer system, They even had college tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    They had rigid availability standards, I didn't feel like promotions were fair as far as who was or was not considered for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reducing labor on the floor or you won't have any employees left to serve customers

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

    Pros

    Able to work with some great people and great benefits with health and wealth. Typically pretty laid back leadership.

    Cons

    hard work for the pay, work / life balance hard to maintain, career path is undefined and suggested role is no where close to what is done in the day to day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensate better if you want talent to stay
