    get to work with good people, cool discount, good break area, good management, minimal serious issues

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

    Pros

    You are the eyes in the sky. Fairly easy work as well as lots of guest interactions.

    Cons

    Standing in place for nearly all of the shift. Can be a bit tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the hard work AP's do. Very seldom would any of my AP's receive credit for their hard work.

  4. Okay place to work, friendly staff.

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

    Pros

    Great working around schedule, benefits, holiday pay for full time, sick time, paid time off, lots of good food all the time!

    Cons

    Tend to schedule you hours without notice, pay could be much better. Pay is crap for what I do, with experience.

      I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Everyday is different. They allow associates to make "wise business decisions". They are very customer driven. The job gives back what you put in to it.

      Cons

      Holidays are full of long days and weeks. At time pay can seem a bit low for the amount of effort put in.

      Advice to Management

      Pay should be more similar to other retail environments (Cellular Carrier Stores, HHGregg, and so on).
