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

    Pros

    I found really solid connections and grew as a person while working for Best Buy. I also learned a lot about product management in the work place for Sales and Business purposes. My overall experience was enriching because of the non-stop courses offered to me as a sales associate.

    Cons

    Often times I was stuck having to work alone in the work environment due to being a part-time employee, however, I learned to quickly adjust to manage my time properly while working alone within my department.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that the seasonal product placement and packaging could have been better for the customers that ventured to my department. Many of the customers that wanted to buy products in large quantities directly from the best buy store had no way of getting large bundled products.

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

    Pros

    Some of the best training in industry for a kid who had no experience in sales. Friendly store competitions. NOT COMMISSION BASED - Sometimes the store, occasionally your nearby stores too, would just have rough months, its very nice to not have to worry about the income being consistent, and, it helps you sell because you don't feel pressured to add a bunch of stuff they don't need so you can pay bills too.

    Cons

    Lots of working with people (its sales), so you can get some moody people. I didn't really like sales, but I loved the opportunity at Best Buy, but even though we had a small store, my hours would get cut because I was way below were I needed to be for sales, hard to raise that when you are in the store once every 7 or so days.
