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

    Pros

    Management at my store is absolutely fantastic - in my part time position they have no problem approving of days off or availability changes. Lots of positive feedback from them on how to improve in my position as a Computer/Tablet Sales. Also the company gives an awesome employee discount, and it seems a lot of folks get promoted to new positions often.

    Cons

    At worst, sometimes it seems like you can be underpaid for the amount of product knowledge or skill that you have. Some positions in the company are unstable and people seem to get laid off at uncomfortably regular intervals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay raises.

    Pros

    They have good training and manuals. It's a good place to learn and start working.
    Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    It's retail so there's a pressure to meet a sales goal. If you enjoy sales, you'll be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good work.
