    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is solid Coworkers are generally chill to work with.

    Cons

    Hours heavily based on performance except for holidays. Managers often disagree on what’s best for the store and salesman are caught in between. Not only have to worry about selling regular stuff but also selling “credit cards” to customers and these things called total tech supports. If you don’t manage to hit the numbers given then good luck on hours.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    1: Bonusing is nice even when it comes to being part time 2: Managers always train when needed to do so 3: Friendly environment 4: The discounts are really good 5: They work well with your school schedule if needed

    Cons

    1: Pay is ehhh for all the things you have to know 2: My location has a manager who always has a problem with anything and everything so asking for his assistance is always a no go for me 3: Keeping up with numbers isn't hard... as long as there is customers, but if there isn't no matter what it's kinda hard to do something about it

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management is if there is a manager who literally has a problem with every employee in the store, there should be some sort of action taken against it to talk about why it's so hard for him to work with anyone
