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

    Pros

    Good starting pay if you dont have bills.

    Cons

    Management was mean with unrealistic expectations. Credit card is a rip off for customers. Unless you like luring people into debt I dont recommend this position.

    Advice to Management

    A good community and happy employees actually does good for productivity. Dont be condescending.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    They provide you with a lot of training and pay you for it. The staff is fun. Playing with new products is fun. Being able to switch between departments when working is beneficial for knowledge.

    Cons

    Not that great of an experience for future development in mobile technology. You mostly activate phones and talk to customers who don't understand how to use a phone correctly. The salary is extremely uncompetitive in comparison to someone at Verizon or AT&T.
