    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The nice part about this job as a part-time worker are flexible hours, fostering a team environment, and paid sales training.

    Cons

    The cons of working in Best Buy is the fact that it is a retail environment, there's lack of accountability among employees, and being required to hit a minimum hourly quota.

    more sales training

    Pros

    Employee discount - normally 10% above the company's cost or an item; Lots of cool electronics to play with, young and energetic management

    Cons

    Irregular schedules, working most if not all holidays. Intense pressure for add-on sales (i.e. adding accessories to TVs, computers, etc). Felt like a commission environment even though this is a commission free.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the work-life balance as fair as possible with all employees
