Pros: great customer interactions, amazing staff discount.
Cons: low pay, bad management, annoying leaders, long hours, mandatory weekends, over-enthusiastic co-workers
Started off with a very positive energy when hired for the Best buy camera position. Later, I find that many people who were hired about 7-8 months later were being paid much higher. There is no set starting wage, im sure the GM just grabs numbers from a hat. There is also a major flaw with the management. Supervisors of each department would slack – more... and go on frequent breaks, leaving the selling up to regular part-timers. Even after multiple complaints, nothing is done to fix the situation. Working at best buy, you get to see their true motives, we are not on commission, but are still hounded from supervisors to sell the service plans with sense of urgency. After being bossed around constantly all day, and being scolded for not having better "numbers", then having to smile through it all, was definitely the hardest part of working at a Best Buy. I've transferred to 3 places now, and the story is all so similar from one Best Buy to the other. – less
