      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Best Buy

      Pros

      Good supervisor and management for the most part. Great Co-Workers Overall fairly satisfied.

      Cons

      Wish there were more opportunity to advance Wish there were commission based pay or higher hourly rate of pay. It's hard to make it on a rate of under 9 dollars an hour with only part-time hours. I would love to advance to full-time but I've been there for a year and no opportunity just yet...

      Advice to Management

      I wish management made it a point to share news of job openings and generate more full-time spots.

Once during the holiday rush, and once after the holidays), Check Verification Policy...

      Advice to Management

      It wouldn't hurt to give more advice to employees along the way, instead of waiting until review time. Don't believe what other co-workers say without finding out for yourself. When laying off seasonal workers, don't treat them like they were only in it for the discount. Actually have the General Manager participate in the hiring process.
