    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be a really fun workplace. Management is very responsive of good work, you are often recognized. You gain a ton of knowledge about technology.

    Cons

    They push and push sales, credit cards, Geek squad. Can be very stressful trying to meet lots of unattainable goals. Daily performance tracking and monthly reviews can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push so many different goals. Don't encourage salespeople to sell products they don't think the customer needs. It should be about meeting the customer's needs.

    Work environment is good, discount is great, pay is good for what you actually do, management is actually helpful if not "meeting goals"

    Hours can vary for part time, no benefits for part time, monthly goals can be unrealistic some months, commission behavior even though you're not on commission

    Part time benefits would be great

    I worked at Best Buy (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loved the discount and the people you would meet. Being able to work in different departments. Again, the discount.

    Cons

    No room for advancement unless you are in the clique, or a butt kisser. Lack of information from upper management on to where the company is going.
