    Pros

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

    Upper management for the most part was always pretty cool

    Pros

    Discounts, coworkers, break room, organization, chill place to work at

    Pros

    Great pay compared to similar jobs, endless amounts of benefits, really fun place to make a career.

    Cons

    A great culture starts with a positive leadership team to keep the employee force engaged. Unfortunately this is not consistent in every store.

    It starts with you!

    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Good Pay, fun environment and people to work with , the discount on certain products

    Cons

    Hours sucks when it's not the holidays unless you are full time and the not much room to grow in the company. The customers can be a real pain if they don't have it their way or can't return their products which is normal in any business especially retail!

    Pros

    Good team members sometimes, also sometimes there is good pay and benefits. They try to provide accommodations for employees. It's really really really hard to try and think of any advantages or benefits of this company

    Cons

    - held accountable for the mistakes of others, and expected to do more work in half the time. When a display is set wrong, you must first fix it and then do it yourself but management will act like it's your fault
    - temperamental management— when they don't get their way, they will throw a fit him. Supervisors show no leadership ability. They don't care if you succeed. They will not help you.
    - bad employees are promoted to full time and moved into leadership roles. Often times your team leader will have a very bad attitude and be very rude, and management doesn't care as long as they do an acceptable job.

    Advice to Management

    - You need a manager training program. Promoting from within is good only if you train the managers that you promote. When managers are on a power trip just because of their position, then performance will suffer
    - STOP MICROMANAGING! If you see your employee working, let them work and do their job. You can't possibly expect them to do something in 10 minutes that takes 50 minutes

    Pros

    Best thing is discounts , discounts, discounts being able to be the first to have access to the cutting edge technology and getting close with vendors to show off there new products before release

    Cons

    Challenges is when sales aren't looking to good and traffic isnt has high for part timer hours get cut to accommodate for the missing Rev for the store

    Advice to Management

    Be to yourself and make friends with higher ups
