    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best Buy is a great place to work after high school, or while in college, you can learn a lot about sales and business. Even if you don't stay with the company long term, it's a great stepping stone to better opportunities in your professional career. The job comes with great perks like giveaways and significant employee discounts.

    Cons

    They are continually changing how they do things, working Black Friday. Their pay is decent, but the way they set up their department group sale bonuses could be better, especially if you are a continuous top performance. Also, depending on your locations, work culture management can be sneaky and not have their employees best interest at heart.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the peers that I worked with.

    Cons

    Management did not seem to understand what proper communication was, did not grasp the inevitable failure of sales goals when departments were pitted against one another. My requests for further training to move up were ignored, initial training was done by peers and not leadership. Many unethical situations that were reported directly to HR that were ignored completely, upper management too part in ridiculing employees and teams that were not their own.
