    Pros

    Great company to work for and looks out for each and every employee

    Cons

    Hours can be slim at times

    Advice to Management

    Most of the time you guys are on point with all aspects of the business. More communication with all management would be helpful for the sales team and would filter down from there.

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

    Pros

    Some of the pros for working with Best buy were obviously the discounts on items which can be extremely cheap.

    Cons

    You had a weekly sales goal that needs to be met and that can be stressful at times. There will always be angry customers but you just gotta know how to handle the situation

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was lenient. Had a mix between micro managing and allowed employees to have control

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

    Pros

    Employee benefits. Environment. Training. Company itself. They promote based off of work ethic and not off of seniority which is amazing.

    Cons

    Lots of teenagers or immature people who create drama. People who work just for the paycheck and don't care about the job itself. Politics. Do not get involved with it. Even the strongest most mature person with great work ethic will undoubtedly find themselves hearing their name in some kind of drama.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the employees keep their focus on their job and not each other.

    Pros

    Good pay, great discount and accommodations. Easy job once you understand how to do what is required from you. Yup....

    Cons

    Management is great but often times are focused on sales rather than focusing on customer experience, sales are great to have but if the customer is not satisfied they will not come back.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your workers ability to get the job done and how to keep your worker satisfied financially
