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

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!

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Better compensation than other retail stores. Will teach skills if necessary for some positions, training can provide skills that are useful in general.

    Cons

    Review/feedback is designed to push workers extremely hard then provide minimal reward. Management it slow to react to competition and generally seems to cling to outdated business practices, certainly not agile. Ends up being a soul-draining experience with no inspirational or aspirational qualities for people older than their early twenties.

    Advice to Management

    Change the company's direction or be left behind. The top-heavy nature of the pay and leadership structure is showing in employee loyalty. Treat workers fairly and like humans, help them enjoy their work and even your customers will benefit.
