    I have been working at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Hours are flexibility, so many learning opportunities no matter what part of the company you work, it was pretty easy to get hired on especially during holiday seasoning.

    Cons

    The management can be very unprofessional (atleast in my store). A lot of "Do as I say, not as I do". If you aren't sales floor or geek squad, well you may want to consider a second part time job or maybe look for another job if you have bills to pay. Not a lot of room to promote and you will find yourself doing jobs you didn't recall applying for sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional

    Some of this company worst flaw is management they can’t every seem to get thing correct and they are consantly walking around not doing much at all at least from my experience.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great discount and vendor accommodations. Most of coworkers were fun to be with. Learning was easy and pretty straightforward that's about it.

    Cons

    Hard to advance unless you suck up a lot. Little pay for the amount of work and not enough respect. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and they'll care about the jobs

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The people are great. Awesome training program. Working at bby will keep you current on the latest consumer tech. Plus having benefits never hurts, store, healt, vision, etc.

    Cons

    Depending what section that you work in, or how much product knowledge that you have. There is the chance your day is full of running all over the store. Oh a 30min luch comes with being apart of the Best Buy team.

    Advice to Management

    Make lunch an hour, 30 minutes isn't enough time to do anything.

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

    Pros

    Good Discount on some items, Job is not hard or complicated

    Cons

    Clearly a separation between Sales team and Warehouse team, like most jobs. Best buy does not offer hours. they try to keep you on part time as much as possible. even seasoned workers that have worked here for years, still don't get 40hrs a week.

    Advice to Management

    Have steady full time workers, not a bunch of jumbled part timers.

    I worked at Best Buy for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Perfect if you enjoy being over worked and under paid plus you will get along great with the management if you are a grade A but kisser

    Cons

    low pay, lack luster training, management does not lead by example (do as I say, not as I do) and you are expected to train yourself in other departments on your own time with no compensation.
