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

    Pros

    Good management that celebrates your success, relatively flexible with time off requests, fun environment to work in if you like technology.

    Cons

    Pushing credit cards and warranties can be demoralizing, especially if you feel like the customer would not benefit from them.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401 plan, and tuition reimbursement, potential for bonuses quarterly. Co-workers get along well it really is a family outside of family depending on location. I have worked at many locations in many departments. Most management was pleasant, and seemed to really care for their employees. I was paid pretty well due to my tenure.

    Cons

    Favoritism, gender discrimination, if you are not in a sales role you wont get promoted. Pay was not the best either compared to other retail establishments. Especially if you are female it is difficult to move into a supervisor, or manager role. Mobile department is the one that you can move up quickly, however most locations I have known are filled with drama, and gossip.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic company culture ( You'll quickly make friends + everyone wants to see the success of their team), on-going training about technology/products offered, they work around your schedule

    Cons

    The pay is a little on the low end, but it's a trade off for some of the other perks. Also, pay isn't just given at entry-level, it has to be earned, which is understandable to me.
