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

    Pros

    I loved Best Buy and I loved my managers. They tried so hard to make sure you were going where you wanted. If you love retail then it's perfect, hating retail will only make this job worse. I had a passion about getting ahead and being awesome at Best Buy!

    Cons

    Part time team members weren't all the way there. They could care less about the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep helping your employees, they appreciate it.

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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, good people. Management depends entirely on location (had worked at various stores).

    More sales than technology, so if you are looking for a technology more based job, you are better looking elsewhere.

    Discount is great.

    Cons

    Sales heavy, non-commissioned based sales. Not a whole lot of room for improvement unless you are looking for leadership positions (which usually require working various years prior to applying/being accepted).

  3. "Great College Job"

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

    Pros

    They had an excellent employee discount and offered a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    It is retail, so plan on working weekends and dealing with rude customers.

    Pros

    Flexible shifts for students. Good discount. For the most part fun people to work with.

    Retail sales and dealing with customers. GM a micro manager

    Don't micro manager

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible schedule, fun environment, good management, decent bonuses, good sales training, nice people. Awesome discount it's usually 5 percent above cost

    Cons

    Seems like management tends to make empty promises sometimes. Need to invest more in current employees. Have to fight for raises (I was only earning 12 an hour despite being the top sales man in the territory they only offered me a .12 cent raise. I threatened to quit before I negotiated a decent raise)

    Advice to Management

    Value your hard workers

    I worked at Best Buy (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You got a job and the customers and Co workers are friendly (most of the time). Nice to meet new people everyday.

    Cons

    Your voice is never herd, your hours are cut for no reason, you have to reapply for a position that is open and they give that to other employees who are your superiors. No equal opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Try noticing the "little people" who work hard and not just their superiors because they have been thereally longer.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The direct co-workers were great to work with.

    Cons

    Management. You couldn't get a decent raise because for performance scores they say that out of 5 you can never be scored above a 3. Even if you do work far above and beyond what your title and normal duties are management scales it down to a 3/5 maximum

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect. Recognize strengths that you can exploit in your employees to get better store management. Cut ties with store managers that just talk up their performance without having the raw key performance indicators to show they are being successful and leading their team to success.

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

    Pros

    The people you work with become family
    Great learning experience
    Good way to get "your foot in the door"

    Cons

    Low pay for what is required
    Bonus sctructure change makes a bonus harder to get
    Expected to make the company 120/hr when they pay you about 9/hr

    Advice to Management

    Training was great!
    Pay your hard working employees more
    re-work bonus structure so its individual based rather than store rev based
