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

Pros

This is one of the only very few jobs that is willing to work with your school schedule. They have great benefits for full timers and also now implementing better benefits for their part timers as well. Of course the discount is a plus and also the bonuses that the whole store is apart of now. Great job overall.

Cons

You lose many of your holidays. It is hard to go on vacation during holiday season. Have to work long hours during the holiday season as well.

Advice to Management

It would not hurt to be more caring towards your employees.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount, Learning about newest products

    Cons

    Barely above minimum average pay, Getting reamed by management for not hitting numbers, Store was completely micromanaged, promoted by seniority and not by work ethic or dedication to the job, Not a inviting environment, I personally was poorly trained as well before they put me on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many to list but treating your employees better so there isn't consistent turnover is a good start.
