Great people to work with, although management was very poor.

Pros

Employee discounts, it is very large on best buy's brand names.
Coworkers were pleasant and I always had a good time at work.

Cons

At my location management was very bad. The general manager played favorites which made it hard for him to see how some of the other employees were actually performing their jobs. Never get a raise!

    Pros

    Great learning environment with opportunity to do fun work and get great experience. Room for advancement if willing to relocate around the country.

    Cons

    Reorganization and downsize just about every year. No regular schedule from week to week and don't plan on your family liking you around the holidays.

  2. Cool perks, boring job

    Pros

    The employee discount is great. You can get $25 phone chargers for like $4 because employees only pay 5% above the cost that Best Buy bought it for. AKA, very little markup. Doesn't work for laptops, desktops, consoles, and some tvs though, just because Best Buy uses rebates to get those prices lower for the customers. Moving up the ladder seems to be an option for most people.

    Cons

    Working as a cashier is boring. Working in customer service is aggravating. The sales floor is more fun, but the pay isn't good enough to make this job worth it. I always had trouble getting the hours I wanted, also.
