I worked at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

Pros

-They pay above minimum wage
-PLENTY of hours during holiday season
-Very respectful of school hours, other jobs, and just general life.
-Great treatment from company
-Plenty of opportunities to get extra hours (volunteer for midnight openings!)
-Store I worked had lots of drawings for cash or lunch or rewards for selling a certain amount or signing up a certain number of credit cards.
-Lunches you get paid to go to.
-They want you to get paid for coming in and filling out paper work. Awesome!
-ETK

Cons

-Management expects you to follow customers around and bother them to buy something. I've heard a few customer complaints on this.
-Most of the people in the computer section were lazy towards their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be a little more polite to customers and respect their personal spaces.
Watch every department for people who aren't willing to work. There are plenty of people out there who would gladly do the job instead.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company nto work for and get promoted in.

    Cons

    Just because your managers are hourly, doesn't mean you can control their lives. I worked 2 months straight, open to close without a day off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook the salaried managers.
