    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is solid Coworkers are generally chill to work with.

    Cons

    Hours heavily based on performance except for holidays. Managers often disagree on what’s best for the store and salesman are caught in between. Not only have to worry about selling regular stuff but also selling “credit cards” to customers and these things called total tech supports. If you don’t manage to hit the numbers given then good luck on hours.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are genuine and honest. The company pays fairly well for retail. The hours are flexible and understanding. There isn't a competition between you and your coworkers. They support you getting your education.

    Cons

    The standard daily operating systems get messy. The nights can be hectic due to inventory. Holidays are always exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Lead your people in ways they wouldn't expect to gain training from. No one wants to be forced to learn. Keep it inclusive and interactive to the best of your ability.
