    - Good compensation for the area
    - Chains of command
    - Flexible, especially for students

    Cons

    - Stores vary by management

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

    Pros

    - Flexible with part time hours
    - They try to have fun at work
    - Employee discount was amazing

    Cons

    - You are treated more like a number than a person
    - Will get on you about not meeting personal sales budget. When you do hit that budget, they keep pushing you to do more. Nothing you do will ever be enough in the eyes of management.

    Advice to Management

    -Treat your employees like people and not numbers.

    Pros

    Employee discount, 30 min lunch break, laid back environment, tuition assistance for full-time.

    Cons

    No off days at work during the holidays. For about 3-4 months you can't request time off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing inventory setup, we get backed up from the incessant need to reorganize (which never helps) which causes a rippling effect throughout the entire store.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They do a decent job at working around school schedules and are pretty flexible with hours, however if you are looking for more than 20 hours then part time is not for you. Starting pay is decent but not amazing

    Cons

    Most of the positions in the store are sales driven and force you to obtain goals that may seem unreachable or unfair. However these goals will change based on performance and may be harder some months compared to others

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

    Pros

    Discounts on electronics, some stores its fun environment to work in depending on managers, works not terribly hard

    Cons

    Pay always sucks, hours can be terrible, some management can be jerks which makes it almost unbearable to work for

    Advice to Management

    I worked at two different stores while at best buy. The first store I worked at in Colorado Springs was great. Management was easy to work with and overall the moral of the store always seemed positive. I transfered to another store in fort collins and it was almost the complete opposite. Needless to say I didn't stay long.

    Pros

    Excellent management, employee discount, fun place to work, and you get trained and stay up to date on electronics!

    At least at my store, they really work with your schedule, let you take days off for things like concerts if you as in advance, no problem with schedule switching, and they take to heart where you want to be in the store, and give you every tool necessary to get there.

    Cons

    Sometimes they want you to ask a little too much when it comes to helping customers.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. My management is amazing and I wouldn't change a thing.

    Pros

    -management works with associates for time off
    -access to trainings for different departments
    -nice employees to work with, sometimes

    Cons

    -no consistent weekly schedule
    -hardly any room for promotion, let alone a raise for doing most of the work
    -many slackers on the job-- so the few have to pull their weight

    Advice to Management

    Should care more about their associates-- there is something to say about a company that satisfies its employees AND its customers.
