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

Pros

The Employee Discount and the Coworkers are the two Pros for this company. I'm not really complaining about the hourly salary either. Its more than some places, less than others. Overall a decent pay rate.

Cons

Management is sometimes incompetent and is not easy to work with. Was told they couldn't schedule me out of my availability (the only exceptions as that you can't request both Saturday and Sunday off) and I constantly got scheduled out of my availability. Also, was constantly micromanaged

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and let them do their jobs. Do not micromanage.

    Pros

    Best Buy is a fun place to work. There is a lot of competition and the product training is top notch.

    Cons

    With recent changes there will let room for advancement because there are fewer supervisor and manager positions in each store.
