    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will eventually learn how to approach people more and get better at it every day. Learning some of the latest consumer tech and sale strategies that might help better the customer experience. Awesome Commardarie amongst fellow employees.

    Cons

    Because you deal with all kinds of people, it can get quite exhausting to deal with "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugliness" of personalities that may come your way. It is and it will always be a numbers game (that is in sales, customer feedback, and productivity). Holidays and Black Friday

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They offered a generous financial assistance packaged when the COVID-19 pandemic began and continued to offer health insurance. This was a great example of the care that this company has for its employees. Managers were knowledgeable of their roles, or at least able to inspire great workers. I was able to balance full-time school and part-time work because of their flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    All hands are on deck for Black Friday, and the following Saturday for 8-9 hour shifts that could either be overnight shifts or long day shifts. E-Learnings (digital trainings) were good at giving you surface level information to convey to your customers but to effectively sell in my experience you needed a lot of your own research to show true expertise in your department.

    Lots of turnover with seasonal and part-time associates
