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

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good, if you are a salesman you have some chance at a bonus, and full timers get excellent benefits.

    Cons

    You are stretched very thin. We often have 1 person working 3 departments, you are expected to work wherever they throw you and you hardly ever work where you were hired. The bonuses are nearly impossible to obtain and you don't get one unless you are sales or management. Part timers can get good hours, only if you are completely open with availability and can really sell. The managers are often inexperienced and aren't professional. It's a very walking on eggshells environment. Also, you have to push Geek Squad and the card on people.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers better, have so communication, stop being so pushy with services/Branded Payments/GS.


  2. "An enjoyable college job where you just walk around and sell electronics to people."
