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

    Pros

    Pay was good
    Hours were decent. When busy you get around 38. When the seasonal is almost over they’ll give you around 12

    Cons

    High number demand.
    Unexpected hour drop

    Keep doing what you’re doing

    Pros

    It's an electronic store that's it.

    Cons

    This is a horrible store to work at, not willing to give employees chances and unwilling to listen to people. I'll never shop or work here.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should try giving people opportunities and you wouldn't be losing business to Walmart and Amazon.
