Featured Review

Former Employee - Computer Sales Associate

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

Pros

Learned almost all of my sales and customer service skills at this job. The overall environment was always positive and I am still friends with coworkers from my store. Worked there part time as a... college student and they were very flexible with my changing schedules when I had tests, projects, etc. They were very patient with me especially since I had zero sales experience going into it, but was able to learn and become well verses in sales/customer interaction.

Cons

None, unless you don't like working hard. Don't expect to show up and just do nothing everyday, you have to try and go 100% every shift

Advice to Management

none, my management did an amazing job in every aspect of the job.
