    I have been working at Best Buy for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The tuition reimbursement is really good and the discounts on certain products make it worth it at times. Also when it comes to support or training provided by Vendors those are really fun

    Cons

    Sometimes corporate goals set aren't feasible, also Management can make or break your experience depending on the location....the rules set by your management team can be asinine and make no sense

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some great discounts, mostly great team members. The best way to grow is to make the best sales, have a good relationship with your peers, and always have great rapport with customers.

    Cons

    The hours can be a little much, and they will take advantage of their employees at times. Not everyone will communicate on the same level, favoritism shows consistently at Best Buy. Employees were getting hired at a later date than I was and received $2 more pay for the same amount of work.

    Pros

    You have room to improve and you have constant access to learn about new technologies coming up, but that's only if you outright go and look for them. If you take time to read and participate in their online learning courses and/or events sponsored by manufacturer you're able to learn a lot. Some stores have very good management and you are compensated for bringing positive attitude and production to your work efforts.

    Cons

    At entry levels in retail, the stores can have a very high school atmosphere feel in how they work. Like in the "Pros" section, some stores have very good management. Growth is tough if no one likes you or it looks as if you are not performing up to standards. If you don't take the time to ensure that you have an outside life, they will take advantage and keep you for long times. At times you're often picking up the slack off other co-workers who are either tired of being there or are already on their way out.
