Give the stores control over In-Home Geek Squad agents

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

    Pros

    The staff was very friendly and relaxed. They offer pretty flexible hours and a very good employee discount.

    Cons

    It's very repetitive and you are forced to try to sell extended warranties to most customers. They sometimes have very early morning team meetings.

    Advice to Management

    I would give more extensive training to the sales team. A lot of them don't know much more than what the box says.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The coworkers were friendly and the discount was great. It's a good job for students and people in between things unless on the supervisor or manager track. You have to be careful with which managers you work with and can trust.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are awful, backstabing liars. Favoritism is rampant and some managers can be catty and unfair. Lack of communications between departments and leaders. And lack of initiative on things that are important.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly and just.
