    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The old discounts are back (5% above cost). Pretty flexible with your schedule too. The people you work with are great and makes the job a lot more enjoyable. Being non commission makes it easier to sell and less stressful on yourself. That being said you do not make as much money.

    Cons

    The only reason I am leaving (Just put my 2 weeks in) is because of pay. If I was getting paid more I would stay and maybe consider BestBuy a career choice. The average employee is making 9-10 dollars an hour. There is a chance to bonus but happens maybe 2-3 times a year. If you are looking for part time work around 15-25 hours a week Best Buy will be great! If you NEED to be making more money you will need to look elsewhere...

    Advice to Management

    Path To Excellence is a good way to keep the "drive" for your sales team, some what makes up for no commission. The company's biggest struggle is paying employees for the work they do. Receiving 1 dollar for every 1,000 you make is great business but will lead to high turnover. Fix this issue now before it becomes an even bigger problem (Best Buy cannot afford any more problems)

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    They will hire people with no experience because unfortunately they don't know any better and don't know they deserve better.

    Cons

    You will most likely not move up in the company no matter how hard you try. You will be overworked for minimum pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites.

    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    Discounts Friendly Co-Workers (Your Mileage May Vary) Descent Opportunity for Advancement (Provided you sell sell sell often often often) Discounts I genuinely enjoyed working with customers Did I mention Discounts?

    Cons

    Managers ,as is often in retail, are very metric oriented, I couldn't shake the feeling that while my numbers weren't bad, because I wasn't the top of my sales team, I wouldn't advance. The Hours could get kind of brutal sometimes I hated cleaning up after closing, but that's because I opened more often than closed Customers could sometimes be rude, you develop a thick skin

    Advice to Management

    Push you're associates to perform in a way other than shaming them for not being the top performer. The way they do it is like punishing a kid for getting an A on a report card as opposed to an A+.

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

    Pros

    Your able to meet people and expanding your network. Also I work in the mobile department so phones are a big deal to people. You either do great and give them the best experience. Or you mess up their phone and it becomes a bad interaction.

    Cons

    DOES NOT PAY ENOUGH. Especially in the mobile department. I recommend being a cashier or something easier. What sense does it make for cell phones employees and cashiers to make the same amount of money. In mobile you need to kno about 15+ carriers plus the pro and cons about each, and what will be great for the customer. At AT&T stores sprint and verizon. They get paid at least 12. In mobile they start you at 9 which...

    Advice to Management

    I love electronics but management is management. It sucks in every store honestly. And I can't just blame mangers. I blame the CEO. I'm fed up with company. Most of its the pay. In mobile you don't get compensated for your work it's completely unfair. I might as well be a cashier and make the same amount of money. Won't deal with the stress of customers with their phones. I Won't recommend bestbuy to any of my family...
