    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Obviously the discount! Flexible scheduling, I have great managers that work with me, co-workers take time to understand the product and services to make recommendations that make sense for the customer rather than just sell, sell, sell. I really love that Best Buy is non-commission, the low pressure atmosphere makes it fun and easy to put together the best solution for the customer, it's really fun when the pressure is off.

    Cons

    Constantly changing our systems to "update and upgrade" the tools we use for selling, checking inventory, etc., to the point that we cannot open the tools on the computers is extremely frustrating, pick one that works long term and stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    encourage your team, show them respect you expect and they'll want to do the best for you and the store

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training was good. There’s was always elearnings to keep you up to date with all the newest technology. Typically they only gave basic info and you’d probably have to do your own research too but at least it exposed you to what was out there.

    Cons

    You could ask off two plus weeks in advance and there was still a chance you would not get your time off. Also they did not email schedules so you’d literally have to go to the store to see when you worked

    It was difficult to get hours in the months following the holidays.
