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

    Pros

    Best Buy was a good starting job to have, no matter how much technological experience you have. You'll meet a lot of cool people, and discounts are also a plus as well!

    Cons

    A lot of training to do a basic job.
    Gets boring and repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Always support employee growth.

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

    Pros

    Great discounts on some items.

    Cons

    A ridiculous amount of micromanaging from the general manager and direct supervisor over Geek Squad Protection. Tracker sheets and role playing were both humiliating and out of control.

    GM way too focused on the store profit and would throw any employee under the bus if it meant better numbers.

    Multiple smoke breaks for management and close friends of management. Could barely get a fifteen minute break most days.

    Continuously being told by salespeople to put their numbers on sales instead of ringing it out themselves. Then they wouldn't assist with a code one.

    Blatant instance of management picking favorites.

    Being harassed by GM to attend pointless employee events.

    Was also harassed many times by GM to apply for a credit card.

    Minimal pay increase for a raise and uncooperative management in that regard.

    Unqualified employees chosen for supervisor roles.

    Will beg employees to stay so it doesn't mess up their turnover rate.

    The entire experience feels incredibly dated in the modern age of Amazon.

    Advice to Management

    Close on Thanksgiving so employees can be with their families. Relax on the aggressive sales tactics and warranties. Join the rest of us in 2017.
