    Pros

    friendly work environment, decent hours, great benefits, over all a pretty good company to work for..

    Cons

    lots of store drama at mine, management plays favorites, your kind of forced to go to team bonding events, high demand for little compensation.

    Advice to Management

    if the store manager was ever actually there, i'd probably have more so say, but from what i gather be careful, shes quick to make promises that dont get delivered and really underpays

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

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with are cool, but hard to find out, when management won't give you a few minutes to relax between talking to customers.

    Cons

    Poorly run company that only cares about the bottom line. Pays theirs employees and incentive program is a joke, but constantly pressures their employees to con customers into buying these ridiculously overpriced warranties where they promise a new computer if yours is damaged, but it is really a refurbished computer or credit back at the current value of your computer.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job, because Amazon is about to completely own the market.

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

    Pros

    Being a college student, Best Buy was MORE than willing to work with me on my hours to fit my school schedule.

    Everyone was very friendly, and if I ever had any questions, they were right there to help out.

    Cons

    The only cons that I ever ran into with this job is that you are on your feet, which is to be expected, and that customers can get rude. Again, that is to be expected. If you've got some tough skin and a good attitude, this won't affect you at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
