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

Pros

Awesome environment with other employees, cool products to work with all day, and in a couple of months you will be schooling everyone you know on electronics!

Cons

Lots of terrible management that a lot of the time only care about you "numbers" and performance. Which sadly, in return creates a impersonal experience with your leaders. Changes from corporate that trickle down in to stores a lot of the time feel "inaccurate" to what actually is going on and the changes usually don't fix or help to make the customers or employees experience better. Seems like corporate is out of touch with its stores. EXTREME lack of communication all across the board.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your employees input more. LEARN HOW TO SCHEDULE! Finally, make accurate communication to employees on what is being said to you from your GM and DM! Stop hoping they figure it out on their own.

    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.
