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

    Pros

    Great co-workers made the job fun. Always around technology. If you are an extrovert and social, this is a good opportunity to develop communication skills and network with clients.

    Cons

    At the time of my employment, there was no active department manager. This made the experience of working a little difficult for a new employee.

  3. "Best of Retail"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Jersey City, NJ

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best buy is an often fun and supportive environment which is difficult to find in any retail business. They've been the stable cross between technology and the understanding of it whilst relay that information to the communities surrounding it.

    Cons

    Although there is a strong sense of community within the company, it is still a retail business. The end-less drive for credit cards and multi private services

  4. "Don't waste your time"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    I worked at their flagship store on 14th St in Manhattan which had some great people working there.

    Cons

    The management would force their employees to ask homeless people and those with mental disabilities to sign up for credit cards to drive up their numbers. Some of the managers would try to use anything you may have disclosed with them personally against you at a later point. Your "employee discount" is added to your check and you will get taxed much higher rate for money that you didn't actually make. So I highly advise that if when you do use the "discount" make sure you remember that you'll now be making less money on your next check unlike every other store that does not take part in this practice.

  5. "Solid Part Time Job (depending on your GM)"

    Current Employee - Merchandiser in Bridgewater, NJ
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Depending on GM - Have the freedom to work on what you’re best at, but improve the parts that need improving - Relatively easy job if you enjoy on your feet work (GM dependent) - limited customer interaction in the merchandising position - No more weekend (As early shifts) after company changed plan - get out as late as 3pm most days after an 8 hour shift (unless stuck doing work)

    Cons

    Depending on GM - early start times (depending on the day, can range from 5am-8am) - required to work those early shifts several times a week - requires you to be free during the week
