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

    Pros

    The opportunity to meet new people and make a relationship and to have the locals come in for advice and see a familiar face. Great place to get "hands-on" feel for tech.

    Cons

    Management needs to not be up-front with their blatant favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Nowhere does it say that speaking Spanish was a requirement for the position, yet, when i was interviewed by the manager, he asked about 4 times if i spoke it..or even Portuguese. I have years of experience under my belt with the company, as i just left one from a different town. Moved here and was turned down for employment by a manager who refused me not because i couldn't do the job, but because i couldn't speak Spanish. I went in and saw who filled the position. A damn shame.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts,meeting new people,making new friends.

    Cons

    Making employees,Go to work at 9:am on fathers day to take a training,that can be done at any other time,shows lack of sensitivity to associates and their families.

    Advice to Management

    Try and show some empathy to your subordinates and their families,by not making another training seem more important than quality time with family on Fathers day!.
    I believe making this mandatory traing at another time, will raise moral as well as make us more productive.
