    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many of the discounts are amazing. The atmosphere can be really fun depending on who you're working with.

    Cons

    Sometimes depending on how the turnover or callout rate is can make working really hectic. There are times where you can't get a 15 min break because of being short staffed.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employee discount. That's the only "pro" that comes to mind.

    Cons

    Horrible condescending and rude/angry manager. She would yell at staff in front of customers, intent upon punishment and punitive actions rather than helpful training opportunities. Clearly the management "training" program at Best Buy needs a deep dive to assess what's broken and how badly. Low pay for the hostile work environment. Horrendous turnover rate which is directly linked to a hostile work environment.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work with like-minded people who love technology and share a passion for helping people.

    Cons

    You and all those people you work with who are excited about helping others seldom get to put their passion or skills to use. Best Buy is entirely driven by their top two profit-driving metrics: credit cards and total tech support. The leaders would have you all but lie to add another tally onto the board and could not care less about the customer having a great experience but care more about whether or not there was a credit card applied for or a Total Tech Support added. You're made to feel like a failure if you have a "good" sale that doesn't include a BP or TTS. It starts with the territory and district managers and trickles down to the GM's who pressure their staff to increase the numbers. The reality is you're working in SALES. This is not a job to have if you just love technology and helping people. You must have a driven/pushy sales personality but that's all you need to go far.

    "Can be a very rewarding job, culture varies per store"

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked at Best Buy for four years and held several different positions in different departments, different stores, and including some leadership. The benefits for full time are great and the paid time off is more than acceptable. Training is great, you usually get sent somewhere for a four day long sales training course which is all paid for.

    Cons

    This could either be a pro or a con, but the company rolls out new sales strategies constantly. You'll never be focused on a particular metric for more than a month at a time. The leadership culture around how stressed you might be will depend on what store you are at. This is not a con towards Best Buy as a company, but your enjoyment might depend on who your leaders are.
