    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The ability to learn as much as you want about any department that interests you is incredible. Combine that with the ability to practice what you have learned, to grow professionally and be coached personally gives you plenty of room to prepare yourself for moving up or over within the company.

    Cons

    Making the best use of your time can be challenging for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never take your blue shirts for granted. Observe, encourage, coach and guide. Don't play favorites.

    I worked at Best Buy as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    *The pay is wonderful! If you're entry level, $10 an hour is something special.
    *Great staff; do not distract them when they are busy, however.
    *Because it was the holiday season, they often spoiled us with food. Trust, that's big when you're busy all day long working long shifts.

    Cons

    *Although the pay is great, they hire so much help you get little hours unfortunately. I suppose that's how they balance their pay.
    *The occasional rude or bizarre customer, but that's just retail territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more often! Hiring once a year is madness. Expand your regular workforce a bit as well, it's kind of awkward seeing one cashier handling crowds.
