    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome opportunities to learn about & try products to better service customers. Management continues to find ways to make it a better work place and increase sales. Good work-life balance. Fun work environment.

    Cons

    Monthly Saturday early meetings are dreadful. Certain transactions can be time consuming and can cause to work later than store hours.

    Pros

    Discounts, benefits, co workers, pay

    Cons

    Sales goals, poor management, favoritism

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be some kind of training for some leaders that don’t know how to talk to their team. You want good leadership but you pick the ones that hardly show what a TRUE leader is. I loved working there, I know it’s easy to get complacent with the job but if the moral is down due to poor management—how is it the associates fault when the leader doesn’t care? I’m happy I don’t work there anymore, it wasn’t worth the stress of the sales goals and the ridiculous favoritism I’ve experienced. Good riddance !

    Any returned products makes you the first in line to get great deals with your employee discount. Depending on what department you work in you can have a flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    It can be boring but it depends what department you work in

    Advice to Management

    Implement some reward programs to keep the job fun and exciting
