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

    Pros

    Loved to be able to do online orders and move around the store all the time.

    Cons

    Hated unloading the trucks and have to spend all night doing this and no one from the other departments would help at all.

    Advice to Management

    Its okay to hire more people and let them work only a few days a week. Thats all some people really need.

    Pros

    Encouraging environment. If you wanted to move departments, ask that desired department's manager.
    Inventory scanning is solid.

    Cons

    Palatalized stuff is usually haphazardly wrapped, especially when transferring product between the stores.
    Price changes happen every day and product is shifted around weekly.
     It's a pain to keep the prices always updated.

    Advice to Management

    Automate the price tags without using people to do it (see target)
