    I have been working at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    work with your availability monthly bonus and that’s really it.

    Cons

    work environment pay management sucks no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    honestly this job is for people straight out of hs and/or people with strict availability. hours aren’t consistent of your not full time and you will be in the same position forever if no one leaves, quits or gets fired.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You have the chance to meet some really awesome customer and coworkers. The discount is pretty awesome, too.

    Cons

    Managment wasn't consistent with what they said/did. They'll only do things to benefit themselves but not their employees. They would take credit for any success the business may have had due to their employees. Also, they'll say they don't have favorites.....they do.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and recognize those who preform & put in an effort.
