    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Base pay is decent, paid training, working with other technology fans, getting to know about future devices and prices, the discount, uniform was free.

    Cons

    Rude customers who think they know everything, no commission on sales, demanding supervisors and managers (you're never good enough for them), hard to switch stores/departments, and more...

    Advice to Management

    Realize that we can't meet your expectations every single day. Some days we have 30 customers an hour, some we have 3. Some we don't have any customers for a few hours.
