    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Huge discount on insignia (best buy's brand) products

    Cons

    Low pay considering you're doing one of the most important and the most rigorous job in the store
    Long hours on truck days
    Holiday Season is a nightmare

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate the inventory team more efficiently by having us start unloading the truck as soon as it arrives instead of making us wait
    Don't make people come in at 7 a.m. for unnecessary meetings

    Pros

    The only real benefit of working for this company is the fact that you get some decent discounts on certain products.

    Cons

    one of the biggest cons of this company is that they treat there employees like robots and that all they should do is sell. Managers would not even allow employees to talk amongst each other. It not the type of environment any employee should work under.
