I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Gained a lot of experience and was given many different opportunities to move up.

Cons

Restructuring of company made my position obsolete. I then got pushed into a sales role that I had no experience, training, or want to be in.

Advice to Management

Each manager had a specific role to focus on and made each day different as far as priorities. All the managers should have the same priorities and the same focus for the team each day.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    The positives depend on what store you're at- some even in my town are better run than others. But fun environment, high standards, and the discount is great for Christmas shopping. Corporate culture is really positive and impressing.

    Cons

    Company is slowing dying due to the Internet and struggling to respond and lack of a commission system doesn't reward best sales people

    Advice to Management

    Do better at adapting to the new marketplace.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At my location, it was my co-workers. All of them were great. Management, eh not so much. But it was always a very laid back atmosphere among the workers.

    Cons

    you sell credit cards. Sure you add on Home Theater, computers, video games, but your main goal is credit cards. They base your hours off of that. It feels like a commission based store

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on the credit cards! my hours should be based on production, not credit cards.
