This was my first job and it was really easy to make friends with the team and the store motto is "One team, one dream." This is supposed to promote teamwork and working towards the same goal which is keeping the customers happy and still hitting your numbers. This phrase can also be used against you should you have anything to complain about that would inconvenience management. As long as you are part-time or in a position of management, this is a great place. If you go full time or are trying to move up in the company it becomes not as fun to work there. I've seen most of my friends who have been loyal to the company for 5+ years leave due to this.
The work isn't hard, and should you encounter a difficult customer or situation you always have the team to back you up or help blow off steam. I think this place is a good place to start off.
Working at Best Buy has been one of my favourite jobs yet. The managers encourage the employees and give feedback to help them grow and improve on their retail skills, customer service skills, and any other skills that help them grow.
it was a very nice place to work, everyone was super friendly and there was never nothing to do. the sales people don't work off of commission so its not as much of a battle to get sales as well as there is someone right at the door to help you find the product you are looking for as soon as you walk in the door.
Learned a lot of valuable customer service skills. The staff was always a lot of fun to be around and the staff events were always a ball. Every day at work brought new learning opportunities and challenges.
Not a lot of room for growth they only promote those the current management like. Flexible hours, ok benefits for full timers and paid sick days. Good employee discount but pay isn't very competitive or good. Expect a 2% raise at 6 months then yearly from there
It's a good place to work part-time. You can outgrow the company very quickly because it's there's not a lot of room for growth. The work environment is nice when you have good coworkers, but management can sometimes be terrible
not an inclusive environment, impossible to advance. hours were lacking and there is never a guarantee of shifts every two weeks. management was closed off and it was impossible to fit in as an outsider
Typical day at best is just coming into work and ensure all costumer were service before doing any of daily routine work. Many such making nobody stealing, checking all receipts accordingly, make sure the the shelf’s were full with supply.
A typical day at work at Best Buy is getting yelled at by management for not knowing how to do a so called "basic task" when they had never taught that task to you. If you had a question or needed help, management would tell you "you should already know this." The hardest part of the job for sure is finding the enjoyment to stay in the position. The only good part of the job is the friendships that you make with the people around the store.
