I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The working environment is usually very fun and jolly. If you like fixing computers this is an nice place to do it. I was in in-store tech so I didn't have the shiny cool badge to flash around, but boy did a have some fun stories. From calling cops on out of control customers, sleep deprived customer falling asleep on the counter, customer starting to cry when she heard the total bill. Good times!

Cons

Low paying job, but it's what I expect from a job like this.

Advice to Management

Sometimes I wonder how people got the store manager position, please act like and speak like a professional always, and not just when in front customers.

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

    Pros

    They were pretty flexible with my schedule and needing to have days off. I always had fun co-workers and got along great with upper management, and it was a very social environment. I made a lot of friends there, so it wasn't a burden going to work. Holiday parties were always fun, and even though holidays in retail are crazy they are exciting too because there is a lot going on.

    Cons

    Very sales driven. Management definitely wants to see results. They push selling attachments and the insurance plans, so you need to be comfortable selling those things if you want to do well. Pay wasn't that great. Raises were small. I never wanted to become a supervisor or manager, but for those that did, they had to suck up big time to management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't burn your good people out.


  2. "Overall, a pleasant company to work at."
