    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, great development and great environment.

    Cons

    Only negative is pay. For someone who does this full-time and contributes a lot to the stores success you can at times feel under-compensated.

    Advice to Management

    More towards corporate: I understand you can't pay everyone a ton, but a better structure for highly productive associates would be worth the investment and lead to better retainment.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn customer service. My GM was great but some of the managers under was terrible. I make sure to stick with those that would bring me up and not down.

    Cons

    "I don't know anything about that" -My manager/supervisor's response to a question about geek squad policy. Expect to learn/teach yourself a lot.

    Advice to Management

    For those who are new to Best Buy, remember how much you had to learn about the business. Can't tell someone to use a hammer when you don't give them one.

    Pros

    An environment that is built to help you excel. My team is great fun and we have a ball making big sales. We have a close community of people at the store who really care about each other. The managers are brilliant and fun! They invest a lot into us, and their expectations are high.

    Cons

    Sales is king around here. Your numbers matter. I've never seen anyone get fired over numbers, yet they will be more "encouraging" to those who aren't hitting goals. Understand though this is a SALES job. Numbers matter.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to the pay reform. Having commission on sales would be nice. Perhaps a commission after hitting a goal?
    Also to the employees, support each other! Be brotherly, as some of you have been.

    Pros

    Great coworkers who make those long shifts go by quick, great employee discount, great upper management. Access to the latest and greatest technology.

    Cons

    Very Hard to get breaks with single coverage in departments, extreme micromanagment with daily one on one's. Unnecessarily long checkout process.

    Advice to Management

    When doing doing one on one's don't just tell them employee whether they are meeting goals, also give actual sales techniques that will assist them in meeting those goals.

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

    Pros

    It's not easy to find a job that pays $9.50 an hour to a 17 year-old, and when I was 18 I started working 30-35 hours a week. Good benefits too, if management pays attention to bluecrew perks.

    Cons

    I had no consistency in leadership. Unrealistic expectations. Short labor made for angry customers. I was a full-time student with 25 units and they refused to give me less than 30 hours a week during holiday.

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

    Pros

    Discounts can be good and bonuses based on the sales of the departments and store

    Cons

    Management does not promote based on ability or proven productivity or customer praise, but on intangibles. They also pick employees they like and promote them with out posting the positions.

    Advice to Management

    One of the reasons the company is having problems is they do not promote the most capable employees.

    Pros

    Tuition assistance and friendly atmosphere!!

    Cons

    Seems like management will do anything possible to make themselves look better while leaving the ones who left out to dry. Been here for 5 years and feeling stagnant in my position!!

    Advice to Management

    Higher people with college degrees if you are going to pay them salary!!
