    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I first started it was great, but the focus went from happy employees and great customer service...to numbers.. you are a number and so are employees

    Cons

    They don't look at you as a person, but what how much you can sale.. I didn't get fired because of numbers I can keep up with my numbers... but saw to many people who really tried get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Trying helping people before firing them

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

    Pros

    The only saving grace about this job is working with your fellow co-workers. When you're a salesman you have to rely on each other a lot for support in the job. Whether it's lifting something heavy, getting information you don't know, or just having your back.

    Cons

    The starting pay is horrible. The management there is irresponsible, demanding, and rude. They'll often call you in at the last minute, and punish you if you don't answer. And they'll punish you for literally being one minute late.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with some respect, and pay them a little more.

    Pros

    Great team, relaxed work setting (if your competent at your job), Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Some employees are not as motivated to perform as others which creates a negative perception for customers or other employees to interact with them.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For a retail job, selling technology is a lot better subject matter than most. You get to talk with people in somewhat unique interactions, not just mindless cash register punching.

    Cons

    Held to many different sales numbers. The expectations of commission sales without the money for it. Because of company expectations, management was obsessed with credit card applications, to the point my superiors asked me to trick people into it. Also have to work Thanksgiving. I worked 16 out of 24 hours during black Friday.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to cram credit cards down people's throats. If you are so concerned with people hitting hard sales quotas, pay commission.

    Pros

    Thy care about their employees

    Cons

    Little to no training when hired.

    Advice to Management

    Providing better training for new employees will help lessen turnover.

    Pros

    Good pay for the work performed. Great peer team!!! Support when needed. Great employee team!!!

    Cons

    District leadership clearly had favorites and made no effort to hide that!

    Advice to Management

    Be more specific. Don't expect people to know what you expect if you don;t clearly tell them. Hide the favoritism better.
