    Pros

    You learn more about new technology and practice basic selling strategies. The discount is really nice for most items so you can get some cool stuff quickly. The company has been really good at working with my school schedules which change every semester. Most people that work there are smart and fun people to be around.....most.

    Cons

    Best Buy expects dedication. They track sales and compare yours against coworkers. If you are not performing, don't expect as a ton of hours. If you plan on making a career out of Best Buy and start at the bottom don't expect to move up in the company quickly. Many managers who have worked up the Best Buy chain spend many years to get there. I've seen people work 4 years to become a supervisor (only $14-16/hr). Very competitive environment to move up in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't know about your departments products and can't sell it then learn how to do it. My store manager has been with Best Buy for four years and cannot sell a computer, TV, or appliance and doesn't know how to process a return. Basic tasks for most employees. Not only do new employees need you there to lead the way but your older employees will respect you more for being a real leader.
