    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with people that want to succeed and want to do well. Generally high values and fair compensation/benefits.

    Cons

    Relentless pace, which is consistent with most high profile retailers. Highly political atmosphere, at times to the detriment of the work. Mid-tier management is not consistently top of line.


  2. Helpful (3)

    "Oppressive, strenuous, grueling, frustrating"

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discount is nice to have. It used to be much better though a couple of years ago. My co-workers at my store turned out to be good friends of mine, but since the store closed it would not be the same.

    Cons

    Customers get the right to berate and abuse you for defending Best Buy's asinine policies regarding anything. Best Buy makes their employees work long hours with little or no breaks. Managers are dismissive and over work their employees while under training them. This is why most of the staff at Best Buy Stores have very little product or policy knowledge when they are put out onto the sales floor. And let's not forget about that awful uniform.

    Advice to Management

    At the corporate level management should be encouraged to strive for employee happiness instead of pushing them for profits at the cost of the store employees. They should also focus on training. Best Buy should be able to help more customers at the store level instead of having customers call a 1888 number for any issue outside of the store's control.

  3. "Good Part Time Job, difficult to get full time"
