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

    Pros

    -Everyone is friendly and will help you with any questions you have.
    -Checkout is kept considerably tidy with how many people are back there everyday.
    -Employee discounts on open boxes and snacks that you may want for lunch are awesome!
    -If you’re a good employee managers WILL take note of it, I’ve been approached by 2 managers for a position after seasonal. You can move up really fast if you are a fast learner and are dedicated to being a good employee.

    Cons

    -Since I started the week before Thanksgiving I wasn’t taught all the ropes so I’m still catching up because of it.
    -As a seasonal you won’t be able to call out so I’ve been sick twice since I got here and had to push through my shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you guys are doing, every manager in the store makes me feel welcomed and appreciated.

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

    Pros

    There is plenty of room for growth and the firm is great on employee development.

    Cons

    The health benefits could get better, and sometimes it's a bit overwhelming with so many KPIs

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the KPI, there are too many categories which causes the employee s to feel overwhelmed and wanting to leave.

    Pros

    Really good job, with growth towards management or higher tier positions.
    Fun atmosphere great benefits, lots of perks.
    Definitely can have a fun time at work.

    Cons

    It feels like there could be better focus on development and keeping the team motivated

    Advice to Management

    Some stores do it, but there should be development plans to entry level employees to get them on board. There are a lot of people who become complacent there, and at one point they were not like that.

    They shove RPH down your throat if there are dead days then you technically suck to best buy. They expect you to make revenue on a dead day

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

    Pros

    The employee discounts are great and you are always up to date with the newest technologies releasing

    Cons

    Hitting numbers. You have to sell a certain amount of specified products and hit a revenue goal or you will be seen with a bad light.

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed. I loved my management. They protect you. During one year of the time I was there, my store was number 1 in customer service out of the 1050 Best Buy's in the world.
