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

Pros

Very fun atmosphere
Get very detailed good training
Learn a lot about selling and communication

Cons

Managers make it feel commission orientated
Most managers yell a lot when having a slow day
Very low salary pay

Advice to Management

Pay employees more and motivate them to sell yelling does not make us happy to sell
Keep employees actively involved by training when slow not yelling

    Pros

    Can be fun, we do have a ton of awesome technology to play with and the employee discount is great.... We know how to have fun, and when we are great we are great.

    Cons

    work life balance, Half baked initiatives, redundant systems, way too many steps to do something simple, the pay is not on par with expectations, I work 55 hour week and most days don't have even a lunch, I make 7$ less per hour due to the amount of hours I work, being salary at 52500, it says on paper I make 25$ an hour but when I average it with the hours I actually work I make right at 18...which is less than I did as a supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    I'm a manager with the company, it is a thankless job, a little appreciation goes a long way...We have to do a much better Job of showing our people that we care, and I think that it will begin with what we pay our line level associates. We do get what we pay for and especially with all the changes lately I think its imperative that we start taking better care of our people, including middle managers, and pay them what they are worth. You can't have champagne taste on a beer budget.
