    Pros

    Great team, management is great and strives for you to be the best you can be. No insane amount of pressure is placed upon you, but you are given lots of training in order to meet goals

    Cons

    As time goes on more responsibilies are added without additional compensation, but nothing too unbearable.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good discount, willing to work with your school schedule, always opportunities for training in other areas

    Cons

    Best Buy management abuses its best employees and depends on them to keep the store running while the weaker employees who make the same pay are allowed to slack off and break the rules. Also, they are very impersonal. They have no empathy if you are having personal problems and dont acknowledge you as a human being; you’re just a warm body there to take care of their store. Management is super passive aggressive. I worked for the company for over 3 years and consistently met my goals each month and not one manager told me thank you for my work or even acknowledged me on my last day at the store. Oh, and I worked at two different locations and experienced same issues at both locations and have heard similar complaints from employees at various stores. It seems they all train management with the same approach/style.
