    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    We receive solid training on selling and taking care of customers.

    Cons

    Management usually tends to have issues with difficult customers for some reason. Resolving that and better learning how to deal with that should be a priority.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I met some great people while working here. The culture is how you, your colleagues, and leadership team make it. I got to know people outside the workplace and that helped us build a better and collaborative environment at work. I even met my now Fiance and I couldn't be happier. Also, the discount you get is pretty good.

    Cons

    The rude and entitled customers, that comes with working retail. Also having to pick up the slack of others because they're not as passionate or hardworking as you are. Leadership can be a hit or miss because of the character and length of time people have worked for the company can really change a person.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to really get to know your employees and get opinions from them. They have a lot to offer.

  5. Good environment if you find yourself at the right store.

          I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

          Pros

          BestBuy has amazing leadership, from Hubert Joly all the way down to the GMs. I've never once felt like I couldn't talk to a leader at any level, unlike other companies' cultures. The company has prided itself on Expert Service, and is continuing forward with plans to provide a better customer experience. If you work hard, there is plenty of opportunity to move up in the company, and resources are even provided for you...

          Cons

          Scheduled weekends and odd hours, say goodbye to spending most holidays at home. Thus is the life of a retail associate.

          Advice to Management

          Continue to push towards a better Blue! We can absolutely maintain excellence and drive less-than-stellar locations to improve.

          I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Frequent Breaks and a good manager/supervisor to individual sales associate relationship (for the most part). The hours are reasonable and fit your schedule well. They have a break room that has tons of amenities that are helpful for recharging.

          Cons

          The customer base is not very technically informed, so generally you will need to dumb down your explanations especially if you work in tech sales. The sales goals for my store were $8,000 a day, which wasn't a problem on most days because I worked in the computer sales department. The goal can feel daunting and if you have a slow day or the system fails to catalog your sales then you might get a talking to by management.

          Advice to Management

          Understand that the sales goal is good but needs to account for the fact that customer levels are variable and therefore cannot always be met.
