    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It has been a good job to grow people skills and if you are full time, they offer good benefits such as some tuition reimbursement. I really enjoy the employee discount as well.

    Cons

    Working in the Geek Squad department, there is inadequate training and it can be frustrating with fair to poor employee discipline and in my opinion a bit of disrespect to the roles of Geek Squad agents when most of management only see making a sale more important than repairing computers and other mobile electronics. This shows when busy employees in Geek Squad are pulled or hours are very short handed compared to the amount of traffic and work that is there.

    Advice to Management

    If you are looking to gain experience as an employee apart of a big chain store and can handle some growing pains to get there, this is a good company to grow and receive a good employee discount with full time benefits.

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

    Pros

    Working with all the department exposes you to different technologies.
    Retail experience was eye opening.

    Cons

    managers care more about the sale and pushing the "black tie" than the actual customer experience. realize the job is not service but rather retail, you will have to push items and try to up sell customers.
