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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers; flexible hours; fun. I liked being around mobile technology so this was a good job for me since I was majoring in IT and app design in school. I got to work with many different types of phones, which was a great benefit of the job.

    Cons

    average pay; products sometimes out of stock too long. I didn't have the time to study all of the products I sold as much as needed. Management wanted me to get up to speed on my own time. I thought training could have been better. The store's manager seemed out of touch with the pace of change of mobile sales. She didn't get where the market was heading (away from iPhones to other choices). Problem could have been with corporate and not at local level.

    Advice to Management

    get back to basics; don't ignore on-line prices

    Pros

    Interesting work, you get to play with new technology
    You get to honestly help people
    Flexible scheduling
    Clear goals

    Cons

    It's retail and people are unconscionably rude.
    The goals are clear, but often feel unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people motivated and remain fair and balanced.
