    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great discount, coworkers can be great.

    Cons

    Management thinks they're the best thing since sliced break, and working with people always has varying levels of frustration depending on your patience.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with your employees. In my 3 years at Best Buy, 1, maybe 2, managers have really tried hard to connect with the employees and make us feel like we were vital to the machine that is Best Buy.

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, plenty of training available both at the job and from home, access to HR support from home

    no set schedule, but thats retail, according to state law, no lunch unless your scheduled for more than 7 hours

    Advice to Management

    keep on recognising the wins that come from each employee's efforts, make time for the team members to get the training required
