    Terrible management, contradictory mandates, awful hands on training/role playing.

    Stop making people take e-learnings, they are useless and time consuming. Give individual employees a bonus structure, don't make it dependent on the department or store as a whole.

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

    Pros

    My supervisor did a good job managing the team, and often accommodated my schedule as a full-time student. The merchandising crews are often down to earth individuals and fun to be around. If you're in college, and want to reserve your cognitive skills for your academic endeavors, then I'd recommend working in this position.

    Cons

    As a Merchandising Specialist, it is very labor intensive, especially as the holidays approach. You will be expected to stay late in order to stock all the merchandise on the floor or in the back warehouse.

    Pros

    They treat you as if you have a brain in your head, and you are able to learn much about the current trends in technology.

    Less flexible schedules than other job markets such as food service, however there is an assumed degree of responsibility and maturity in this field.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. Get them thinking, and asking questions. Be there for them, and let them know that you are, without being overbearing.
