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

    Pros

    There is never a dull moment as the people you meet and atmosphere Best buy creates keep the job interesting. The pay is decent and the hours a flexible so this is great if you are in school for example. The employee discount is great depending on the item!

    Cons

    Having to work major holidays. Moving up can sometimes be difficult as there is favoritism between the managers and some employees.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, working here was a blast! My one critique, have more respect for your employee's time especially when they are closing the store and waiting to be "walked".


  7. "Overall a great company to work for, if you have a good manager. Has some things that could use changing as of late."

    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Good company. Mobile standalone store is much better than big box. Pretty relaxed attitude, but you gotta hustle when it's busy.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. There is bonus potential, but they're usually not anything to write home about. Depending on your boss, your experience can be very different. I have always had good bosses

    Advice to Management

    Increase bonus potential. Do a better job of advertising deals and promotions to get customers in the store.
