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

    Pros

    Best Buy isn't too strict. This position may be the best position at the store. It's easy work (though labor intensive) and there's more freedom with inventory work than the customer service positions.

    Cons

    They expect you to know things that they don't teach you. Management pushes employees to get customers to sign up for the store's credit card.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Working in the Asset Protection department is pretty easy. You basically greet customers as they come in and check receipts as they go out. You also have a small monitor that you view to watch customers and/or employees throughout the store to make sure they are not stealing.

    You get a discount after 30 days. Some items receive a bigger discount than others. It just depends on what you are buying, but nonetheless you most likely are going to save some money.

    Cons

    The most boring job ever if your store is not busy. You basically stand in one spot for your entire shift, and for the most part that is 6-8 hours STANDING not leaning looking at a 13 inch monitor. You are not allowed to leave the A.P station at all. If you have to go to the bathroom or take a break you have to ask someone to cover for you.

    You will encounter some of the rudest people ever! If you greet 100 people on your shift, please believe 40 of them won't even acknowledge your presence.

    The pay is not great at all. Yes, it's a pretty simple job, so expect to be paid like it. The hardest part is standing on your feet for hours in one spot, not being able to walk and/or move around and tolerating rude customers treating you like the lowest man on the totem pole, because that's how you feel sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Let your Asset Protection employees SIT down when working shifts over 4 hours! They will definitely be better workers and more alert! Pay them more money! Their jobs are pretty important...
