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

    Pros

    Employee discount was stellar (although this has changed), became familiar with newest electronics, managers were friendly in their approach to the empoyees

    Cons

    Disagreed with sales strategy, store was disorganized, sales numbers came before customer service, best buy employs good salesmen before knowledgeable associates, managers are more worried about making their numbers than anything else

    Advice to Management

    Customer service sucks and the prices of accessories are way to high. Any sales plan that relies on expensive accessories or the sales of protection plans to make profits will eventually fail. Why should I pay 29.99 for an HDMI cable when I can buy the same one online for 5.99 and without the poor customer service? Best Buy is going to be on its way out unless it can modernize and start to compete with Amazon and others like it.

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

    Pros

    Usually fast-paced, fun to work with electronics, employee discount, mostly young people, flexible schedule, most customers are good people and many are enjoying to talk to.

    Cons

    low pay, little upward mobility, managers are overworked and underpaid and therefore unable to provide the kind of support that would be necessary to truly make employees successful.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more. Consider commissioned sales.
