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

Pros

Selling technology with the support of constant elearnings is more stimulating than other entry level/minimum wage jobs. If you have good selling skills and leadership you may be able to grab a promotion and move up within the company--you'll just have to wait for your raise.

Cons

There are slightly unrealistic bonus goals now that CBG bonuses off of notional margin rather than revenue; so if you like bonuses, get a position in HBG selling homesyncs and 4K TVs.

Advice to Management

Annual reviews for raises ought to change; it should be a merit/selling history based rating system.

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

    Pros

    You get to work with people with diverse backgrounds, there are opportunities to advance within the company and internal portals to apply for different positions

    Cons

    No such thing as a holiday as you are expected to work holidays, going out of town isn't an excuse here. If you're part time they won't allow you to request off for holiday seasons but they also won't schedule you on the actual holiday in order to avoid paying time and a half. No benefits for PT and the benefits are to expensive for most FT to afford.
