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

    Pros

    - Discount on Best Buy brand items.
    - Meet great people (coworkers and customers).
    - E-learning, on-the-floor training, and company meetings keep you up to date on changes in the company and store.
    - Was offered to stay on as full-time, but I turned it down due changes in Best Buy system and better opportunity elsewhere.

    Cons

    - It was tough to get hours an a seasonal, compared to full-time or even part-time employees, which is understandable
    - The store began to implement pushing credit card sales, almost to the point of neglecting overall customer experience.
    - The store set almost unrealistic daily quotas for revenue per hour and credit card sales. If you didn't hit either at the end of the month, you must attend the mandatory meeting for training. If you fail the next month, you're terminated.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that numbers are important. However, negative reinforcement (termination, mandatory meetings) aren't the only way to increase revenue per hour and credit card sales. Also, maybe set more reasonable goals for a less stressful environment.

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

    Pros

    Great discount on some items, decent pay (above minimum wage), minimal experience needed, some of the work is fun, up to date on most new technology.

    Cons

    Semi-Strict Managers and Supervisors, constantly pushing Best Buy credit cards, Geek Squad insurance, and not allowed to sit or be on your phone, or even (with one of my supervisors) have water on the sales floor.

    Advice to Management

    Let workers be on their phones, especially when it's dead, also, let them sit,

    Highly differentiated management store by store

    Advice to Management

    Watch time sheets to build up part timers looking for full time. Don't sit back on less motivated full timers

    I worked at Best Buy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company was very good with its hours, and the staff there were all very friendly. Customers want things now, but thats cool. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Nothing really bad. The customers complained when something was out of stock because of Black Friday, but everything was great (for the most part)

    Advice to Management

    No advise from me. I enjoyed my time there, was treated with respect, and the entire staff was very friendly. They were great all around.
