      I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Very friendly staff, very outgoing, extremely helpful employees in every department. Competitive between departments but overall a great environment.

      Cons

      New GM is kind of an uptight person full of sarcasm. Some people will just delegate but not help with the clean up process at closing. Favoritism was a thing there. Danny the assistant store manager was amazing and extremely helpful. He was always up for helping out where he could honestly he was probably the best most respected manager in the store.

      Advice to Management

      If you are in a management position embrace the position and know that you are the one in charge not the employees under you no matter their length of employment with the company.

        Pros

        The customers and staff are great. Amazing to see some of the same customers came into the store everyday. I was told they enjoyed the smiling faces and conversations.

        Cons

        The customers are totally right 100% police. Realistically that isn't always the case.

        Managers get to know your employees.

        I worked at Best Buy for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Always some interesting to meet.

        Cons

        More of a job supplier than a career opportunity.

        Advice to Management

        Promote from within instead of filling open spots with whomever you see fit at the moment. Train your employees to be future leaders of the company not just spot holders.

        I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Great team environment. Everyone is motivating and challenging you to sell the most that you can. Good trainings available on all of the electronics in the department, varies by store though.

        Cons

        Sometimes sales are pushed too much. If you do not sell enough of something, or numbers are low..its very frowned upon and pushed even if you cannot do anything about it due to low foot traffic in the store.

        Advice to Management

        Relax on watching the numbers so much. Employees do not care about them...and we will try to sell reguardless.

      • Great first job, not much too it. Just sell attachments and things that get you notional margin and you'll do fine.

        I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        One of the best things was the discount and the openness of the management. The discount isn't the greatest on many of the larger items like laptops and TV's, but on services and accessories, you got rewarded big time. And the education about tech was awesome.

        Cons

        Sometimes there is a little too much pressure about selling the right things, other than that if you can't work Black Friday, you might as well consider yourself without a job.
