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

    Pros

    I think its a great place to start if you want to get your foot indoor when it comes to the IT door. It should be a great stepping stone to something greater. People I have meet and worked with are great, but at the end it is a retail so you will run into some not so fun to deal with customer but it is what it is. Overall I will recommend this job for short term.

    Cons

    Compensations pretty low for the line of work your doing. You could probably get paid 20-30% more for the same work you are doing somewhere else. But like I said earlier, this would be a decent work if you never had this job title before.

    Pros

    Great work environment. The company cares about employees’ benefits and work environment. My team is great and well trained for their roles.

    Cons

    It’s retail so there is little control over the customer base, how they behave or treat you personally in store.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount is amazing
    Friendly co-workers
    flexible hours

    Cons

    holiday season is a bit hectic but that is true for all retail businesses

    Advice to Management

    Despite not making any sales, the inventory department is just as vital as any of the other departments. Make sure inventory employees are happy as well.
