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

    Pros

    Training was good. There’s was always elearnings to keep you up to date with all the newest technology. Typically they only gave basic info and you’d probably have to do your own research too but at least it exposed you to what was out there.

    Cons

    You could ask off two plus weeks in advance and there was still a chance you would not get your time off. Also they did not email schedules so you’d literally have to go to the store to see when you worked

    Pros

    The employee discount definitely makes it worth dealing with all the typical retail customers. The departments are all very tight knit within each other and feel like family. Management is great but sometimes can be very stressed therefore making everyone stressed but that is maybe 3 or 4 days of the month. Monthly bonus is always a HUGE perk, not many companies reward their employees monthly for their performance, I think it really helps motivate employees and make them feel like they’re definitely impacting the company.

    Cons

    I haven’t had a proper thanksgiving in three years. Also it’s retail so you always have to put up with annoying customers.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, great coworkers, nice work environment, easy to learn, overall not hard

    Cons

    Strict management, metrics focused, hard hours during holiday season, poor training environment, under/over staffed constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Take it easier on the new guys. I had the general manager over my shoulder basically the whole time I worked there and it didn't help my performance in the slightest. It made me nervous around customers to know I was being watched so closely.
