    Pros

    Fast paced environment, actually decent trainings, tiered bonuses based on store's monthly performance

    Cons

    Emphasis on customer satisfaction rather than employee loyalty when dealing with unreasonable customers, out of date POS systems and activation software, inefficient utilization of space

    Advice to Management

    Start developing planograms with security devices in mind, focus more on employee comfort when dealing with unnecessarily rude customers

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, student reimbursement program, and generous discounts. Employee promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Working weekends, pressure to perform using metrics that do not affect actual pay. No commission. entry level pay that's barely above legal wage.

    Advice to Management

    Do not train every employee for every position, there are too many products to remember and systems to learn. Allow employees to focus on their department, this will create ownership and as well hold employees accountable. Lastly, managers are notoriously known to micromanage which causes added unnecessary stress, which also increases turnover rate.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    This is a an hourly retail sales job. So, pro's are fairly limited but I will be optimistic. Interaction with customer helps time fly. 30 mins for lunch break on shifts over 5 hours. Managers are very open for communication and help. Employee discounts are very generous.

    Cons

    E-learning (product slide shows with tests) are not challenging and a waste time. (tip, pay attention so you can pass the quiz at the end) Management has no clue how to manage employee work hours. Employees are constantly scheduled for ten hour shifts and then asked to work four hour shift once they hit their time limit. No compensation for products sold, thus no real incentive for an employee to put extra... effort in. The POS is painfully slow! Customers are constantly frustrated when check out times exceed five mins. This is the biggest problem at Best Buy.

    Advice to Management

    For corporate, please update your POS system! This will increase customer satisfaction and increase revenues! For my manager, if you spent a little more time planning the work schedule there wouldn't be such a hire turn over rate (no one likes working a ten hour, standing retail shift). Fixing this problem would save the store time and money, which in turn would look great when corporate evaluated our numbers.
