Does Best Buy allow for flexible working hours? Or are the hours set?

16 answers

  • The hour are set hard to change shift or to get replaced

  • Mostly set, especially if you are FT. Schedules are posted about two weeks in advance and need three weeks for scheduled time off. If you don't have a good availability though, expect less hours or less days scheduled

  • Working hours are flexible for most positions (almost all part-time roles, full-time in-store roles you have some flexibility but still you have to work during the open hours and 8 hours a day) and it is fixed for some others (Field Agents, etc.). Working on weekends (at least one of them) is almost mandatory for full-time employees and holidays are not off as well (this is retail, you have to expect even serious overtime during holidays).

  • Sort of, but it’s retail and they can have a lot of expectations for extended hours around major sales periods. Plus they don’t allow you to work remotely.

  • Mostly set.
