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

    Pros

    Great benfits both for part time and full time, lots of accommodations, career focus goals, non commission as well. Plus, rewarding monthly and quarter meeting and recognition.

    Cons

    Being in computers, you have some of the highest goals in the store, based on hour sales which ranges between $800-1300 an hour depending on the season. It's also retail work, and holiday time tends to be rough, blacked out dates from late November, to January.

    Pros

    Chill environment and co-workers. You just help people make the right purchase!

    Cons

    Even if you're one of the hardest working employees, they are too strict on scheduling/transitioning to part time if you're full time. They really do what it takes to keep you there 5 days a week.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had more fun working retail for electronics than other retail positions I've held. Employee discount and accommodations make this job absolutely worth looking into. Incredible discount on electronics offered at Best Buy.

    Cons

    Some metrics used to measure performance aren't as realistic in certain positions, especially in customer service.

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

    Pros

    The culture of Best Buy is a great culture itself but it is nothing in comparison to Geek Squad. Having fun while being the best is what they are all about.

    Cons

    I was not a fan of working holidays and weekends. I was happy to find a role outside of the retail hours and not have to work Q4 retail craziness.
