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

Pros

great people to work with and great discounts for stuff sold exclusively by Best Buy. Many opportunities to move up with pay raises! I moved from computer sales to Geek Squad with in a few months!

Cons

it's retail! lol. customers can be a pain and you will probably work black Friday! some of the managers can be micro managerial but what retail company isn't like that!

Advice to Management

back up your employees! if they're not supposed to mark something down or give a refund don't just come over and do it anyway to shut the customer up!

    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!
