I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good job for a college student. Better than average pay. Looks great on a resume.

Cons

Way too serious. Employees are a mix of high school drop outs that don't plan on going to school, but do plan to climb the best buy career ladder... Even if they've held the same position for 5 years. Still trying. Some stores budget is too high, so no bonus. There is no encouragement to sell more if you get paid the same.

Advice to Management

Quit promoting high school drop outs with no degree to management. Especially because of favoritism.

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

    Pros

    Pay is good for a teenager, coworkers are friendly, store is clean and nice environment

    Cons

    The management was horrible. They did not work with my schedule availability at all. I was the youngest employee in the store (I'm 16), so I always got the worst hours. Saturdays and Sundays meant 8 1/2 hour shifts. It was a physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding job. Not the best job to get when you're in high school AND college, because they put a lot of pressure on you to sell. Some employees could be really vicious and mean, but most were good.

    Advice to Management

    Try to work with employees' schedules better. Give more incentives to do a good job.
