    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chance to help people achieve their technological goals and meet some really cool people.

    Cons

    People like me who have the knowledge to work in multiple departments and do work in multiple depts are paid the same as people who work in one dept. It's retail, customers have been lead to believe that no matter the mistake they make they are always right and that belligerent and unsavory behavior and threats to not shop there again will be rewarded with discounts and free items/services.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on nurturing employees' individual strengths and help them develop their weaknesses and not just ask, "what are your goals for the day?" Realize that sometimes no matter how much value you create for a service or product for a customer, if they can't afford it, they can't afford it. Some people do not believe in credit cards or protection plans and creating value does not change that for these individuals.
