Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually listen to your employees, don't just blow us off with empty promises. I only worked there for about 7 months but management was insane, expecting something different doing the exact same thing every day

    Amazing environment with a poor pay-scale. Best Buy Mobile.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun, comfortable environment. Open communication with management. Ample learning opportunities. Flexible schedules for part-time. Great for high-school/college kids who aren't looking for a career yet.

    Cons

    Micro-management from corporate. Unstable systems in Mobile. Non-commissioned. Poor organization. Way too many levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to retain valuable, dedicated employees. Turn-over rate is a direct indication of management success.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great fellow employees, associate discount, and a terrific job if you want to learn about the newest technologies.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, inadequate training. Initially applied for full time in computers where I had experience - hired part time in home theater ( televisions and audio) where I knew next to nothing. Took the job because I needed to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to train your employees! Fix the glitchy computer systems.
