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

    Pros

    I worked at Best Buy for two years in Customer Service and there are good benefits and discounts. Great team of people to work with, very energetic and lively

    Cons

    The pay is OK, but not enough for what you have to deal with. In my experience the managers will ask you to do things WAY out of your pay grade but will only give you a raise once a year (and that raise ends up being 0.20-0.90 cents depending on your performance). The customers that have ZERO clue about electronics are the ridiculously demanding ones so it gets irritating.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers to be around and environment

    Cons

    Management and supervisors was the worst I ever been around except the store manager. They showed favoritism and was extremely rude to employees. They try to belittle you till you had enough. Also when it comes to growth they will choose their "Favorites" not from experience or skill.

    Advice to Management

    Cooperate please beware of who you have running these stores because without the employees performing well it will reflect to the customers.

    Pros

    The pay was great compared to other jobs in the same area, they were pretty flexible when it came to emergencies or availability

    Some leads played major favoritism, same leads would nitpick on things making closing last 3 hours or more at times even though products were moved in the morning by merchandising, depending department it was very understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Upper management for the most part was always pretty cool
