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

    Pros

    1: Bonusing is nice even when it comes to being part time
    2: Managers always train when needed to do so
    3: Friendly environment
    4: The discounts are really good
    5: They work well with your school schedule if needed

    Cons

    1: Pay is ehhh for all the things you have to know
    2: My location has a manager who always has a problem with anything and everything so asking for his assistance is always a no go for me
    3: Keeping up with numbers isn't hard... as long as there is customers, but if there isn't no matter what it's kinda hard to do something about it

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management is if there is a manager who literally has a problem with every employee in the store, there should be some sort of action taken against it to talk about why it's so hard for him to work with anyone

    Employee discount and benefits! Management is usually very good and understanding!

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

    Pros

    Best buy when I was working there (from 2013-jan2017) was a great company to work for. Great pay for a beginner's job and friendly workplace.

    Cons

    Best buy has made some changes that have made the workplace worse, less friendly, and less of a place you'd want to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old best buy style.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great for people in school.

    Cons

    Working holidays. Pay is not competitive. Constant micromanaging. Work/life balance not feasible. Little opportunities to advance. One of the worst places I have worked at.

    Advice to Management

    Treat you employees like human beings. We are not robots that you can just say "sell more" to. Help them grow and develop them as professionals. Pay them a competitive wage for the knowledge they have to maintain. The starting wage for a grocery bagger in my area was more than my pay after 5 years at Best Buy. My experience with Best Buy is so bad I will never step foot in one now that I have left.

    Pros

    They work well with you're schedule. For any position and product there is more than enough of training material to better understand the company and its values.

    Cons

    Working the holidays. Who doesn't like to work on holidays lol

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

    Pros

    Best Buy is very accommodating of schedules. Co-workers are great and management is good as well. Very easy to move in the company.

    Cons

    Best Buy pushes their credit cards very heavily and that can be over the top sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees' individual strengths rather than have a standard expectation for all.

    Pros

    Access to training for all products sold to customers. The database to knowledge of what is sold in store sets its employees up for success. The management style allows for a personal approach with customers to build relationships in your community.

    Cons

    High sales goals with bonuses that don't quite match.

    Advice to Management

    Continue giving great training to your employees and maybe give some larger bonuses for their hard work.
