Approves of CEO

I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great technology and products. Fun work environment and great co-workers (well, most of them).

Cons

Pay is OK, but not great. Part time hours are not consistent, and it's hard to move up to full time. Having to know so much about so many products is difficult.

Advice to Management

Let sales people specialize in one area (home theater, or appliances or games) instead of expecting them to know a lot about everything.

    Pros

    Depending on your location you will work with some GREAT people.

    Cons

    Pay is ehhh... But it is retail, so I guess its ok. You will deal with angry customers wanting grade A+ service on their computers, but they want to pay Monopoly money.....

    Advice to Management

    Be more friendly with your employees! And stop letting your position go to your head, and step off the high horse my friend!
