"Great company"Dec 16, 2019

Current Employee - Installer

I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

Pros

great people to work with

Cons

long hours and tough environment

Former Employee - Easy Tech Associate

I worked at Staples part-time for more than a year

Pros

Had pretty good bosses with little to 0 conflict with fellow co-workers

Cons

Not enough training for the Easy Tech side of things. I was hoping to be able to do more PC tuneups and such but never was given the proper training. While that does not dull the job experience, it... was just something I was looking forward to doing. Fixing computers like I remember back in 2011.

Advice to Management

The Alpharetta bosses are probably the best bosses I have ever worked with in retail.
