Pros

Best Buy is a perfect place to work if you love the possibility of growing your career, meeting new people, and learning skills that will help you for the rest of your life. Almost every employee is extremely friendly, and there are tons of motivated people that are there to help you reach your goals.

Cons

Working retail hours can sometimes be frustrating, but overall most employees understand that we have an obligation to fulfill as retail employees which makes the odd hours and working holidays easier to manage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue spending time with the associates in the stores. Sales floor employees love seeing corporate people in the store because it gives them a chance to showcase their talents as well as give feedback on things that are important to them.

    Great first job, not much too it. Just sell attachments and things that get you notional margin and you'll do fine.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the best things was the discount and the openness of the management. The discount isn't the greatest on many of the larger items like laptops and TV's, but on services and accessories, you got rewarded big time. And the education about tech was awesome.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a little too much pressure about selling the right things, other than that if you can't work Black Friday, you might as well consider yourself without a job.
