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

    Pros

    Pretty good discount depending on the item.

    Management at the location I work at plays favorites and does not really care for you if you aren't one.

    Don't play favorites

    Pros

    The discount and item aaccommodations

    Cons

    Managment is bad over all. Advancement is off the "good old boy" system. If your not friends with the management your not advancing or getting 40 hours a week. I have worked at 3 different Best Buys, this is true for every location.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the sales employees better, they are the soul reason everyone doesn't just get things of amazon.com

    Pros

    Best Buy is a good job with a lot of positions that offers anyone to grow, It is also a place that is full of second chances so it is very hard to lose your job.

    Cons

    People you work with can be incompetant at times, but thats what you will recieve when you do not work in professional america. If the people that worked at Best Buy were all great they wouldn't be working in Best Buy they would be working at some other higher paying job. Just remember not to sweat the small stuff.

    Advice to Management

    I can only speak to experience of this one store that I work for but making sure things are consistent and that the management is well organized.

    Pros

    Employees are very friendly. Having fun on the job is imminent. Direct supervisor is the only good supervisor in the store. Discount is amazing, 5% above Best Buy's cost! Non-commission sales is good too, for the most part.

    Cons

    Management team have mood swings constantly. Management team needs a reboot and start listening to their employees ideas more. Things get implemented but never stay in effect for more than a week. Pay could be better as well for the employees that really bust their asses.

    Advice to Management

    Step it up!
