    Great part time job in college

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

    Pros

    - The employee discount is really good
     - Personally, I liked working with customers on a sparingly. You get to help customers find products, sell stuff to them but only when you cross paths on the floor. generally you don't deal with the difficult customers
     - great part time work for a college student
     - you are always up to date on the newest gadgets
     - Get decent exercise from walking around and lifting tvs and other larger objects

    Cons

    - On your feet most of the day, walking on a hard floor
     - Schedules are not as flexible due to working with the truck days

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

    Pros

    I like the big screen tvs. It's nice because you never miss the big sporting events and when things are slow you can go in the theater room and watch an awesome movie on the big sound system.

    Cons

    I didn't like that I had to sell people stuff. It was hard sometimes and they had lots of questions that were hard to answer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that 5% commission is way too low for a big screen tv sale. I think they should up it to at least 50%, it only seems fair.
