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

Pros

Great discount available for employees (5% above cost = about 50% off most things)
Perfect for tech lovers or people who enjoy retail, BBY is a very relaxed corporation

Cons

As with most retail... the hours suck. Say goodbye to your nights and weekends!

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

    Pros

    Staying up to date on the latest technology
    Working in your specialty dept
    Strong bond with your coworkers
    You meet some very awesome customers (some will even teach you a thing or two about technology)
    Employee discount

    I honestly loved my employment there. It was tough work, but I felt apart of a big family. When I started working there, I learned so much about technology and my coworkers were more than helpful every step of the way. There is always something you can learn, and you'd be amazed on the different kinds of knowledge your coworkers have. Utilize it, it will help! Management was really cool too, they never made it seem that they were above anyone and always helped out.

    Cons

    "Encouraging" customers to buy extra services and items
    Strict sales and quotas, not meeting them in some cases mean write ups
    Hard to move up in the company
    You meet some very crazy customers
    Pay could be better in some areas

    There will always be dark sides to business, and I hope with time and effort, it will change back into the mind set of "having fun while being the best" instead of just "being the best"
