    I worked at Best Buy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong team connections. Managers genuinely cared about employees. Typically encouraging environment. Great opportunity to advance over time, fair pay, benefits, and decent hours.

    Cons

    Very few complaints.
    If selling things isn't one of your strengths, and you can't handle unruly, sometimes ignorant customers, this may not be the job for you.
    Sales goals were sometimes hard to meet.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, good bonuses, good employee discount.

    Cons

    Most of my issues were mainly with just poor upper level management, but you're going to find poor management everywhere. As with any retail position, you will deal with a lot of stupid or rude customers.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Training is limited except for e-learnings and then into the fire you go. Management is only interested in the $$$$ not customer service. Constantly changing the bonus structure from month to month. If your not full-time status, do not count on getting a lot of hours(10-15hr is normal).

    Pros

    The discount is still wonderful. You can not beat the deals you get any longer on most items. Sure cables are cheaper at Amazon, but televisions surely are not.

    Cons

    The pay is awful and the attendance policy is strict and brutal. You cant be absent or more than 5 minutes late for six months for any writeups to go away.

    Advice to Management

    More pay incentives will get your employees back where they need to be. Everyone good at our store is looking for a new job.
