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

Pros

It is what you make of it, but don't expect anyone to really help you out. If you start to do good most of the managers will notice you and I kid you not

Cons

No one really cares about what you do. You don't get any type of training whatsoever. You just show up pretty much, everyone hates working there, even the managers, which would surprise most people as to how can people not like working selling technology to customers? It's one of the easiest jobs out there.

Advice to Management

They should get new management, they should hire people who are suitable for the job, people who are excited to work and who are leaders, not managers who can barely walk, or walk with their cell on glued to their hands, while walking everywhere and not even looking up. From the moment she walks in to the moment she leaves she is on her cell phone no matter what. (this manager is the worst one I have ever seen.) Not even joking!!!

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

    Pros

    Great chemistry with employees from top to bottom. Decent pay, but the discount is what gets most people, it will have all of your friends jealous. Great place to hone your sales skills, customer base is generally always looking to buy, and easily convincible due to the nature of major electronic retail. I worked in the Mobile department, which is one where you spend a longer duration with your customers, which I enjoy. Great flexibility.

    Cons

    Managers can over hype a quota, happens in every department which adds unneeded stress. HIgh sales expectations and quotas with no commission (team members do bonus based on store performance).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more and let them express their own sales techniques.. don't always keep it as a cookie-cutter sales pitch. Promote from within more when applicable.

    Pros

    Nice Discount, Decent Starting Wage. Don't expect miracles, because this is a retail job. But it can be what you make of it. Be respectful of the customers, sell them only what they need. You'll be ac

    Cons

    Holiday Season can wear you down.

    Advice to Management

    Some younger associates need serious development in how to talk to customers. They seem to talk to their cusotmers the way they talk to their friends, and some customers clearly find this off-putting.
