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

    Pros

    Nice fellow employees
    Managers are usually reasonable
    Little actual labor
    The ear piece makes you look cool
    Employee discount is great

    Cons

    If you're not making commission, it's kind of stupid to make the sales numbers so important.
    The money isn't great, but not awful.
    After Christmas, part-timers get very little hours

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing credit card apps so much - it makes people not want to come back. What ever happened to Legendary Service?

    Pros

    You get to work with the latest and greatest technology. Their selling process works if you stick to the book

    Cons

    Holiday times can get a bit intense. Even though you don't work on commission, you are pressured to attach items to every sale

    Advice to Management

    Keep on listening to the employees and learning from their success and failures
