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

    Pros

    Company culture is excellent
    Training, you always have the tools you'll need
    Discounts
    401K matching

    Cons

    Sales positions are measured using way too many metrics
    They'll tout discounts as part of why your pay is so low
    No commission just bonuses, uses a complicated formula that gives managers thousands and part time employees considerably less

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster the excellent culture, turn around probably wouldn't be so high if you paid more than minimum wage to the majority of your in-store workers.
