I have been working at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

Pros

There is great sales training-when competing with the largest online retailer, you must be able to have top-notch sales training, and Best Buy does a great job; awesome managers who help you succeed at your job; and great benefits. Also, I like the independence you get-the managers are not micromanagers.

Cons

Low pay, and don't get to sit down during shift-it isn't a big deal if you enjoy standing all day, but it can get to be a bit much when working full-time. If you are in school and are just looking for some part time income, then standing all day is just part of being young and working while in university in my opinion, but if you are looking to stay with Best Buy for some time, then I think having chairs where you can sit for part of your shift will improve performance and employee happiness in the long run. Also, there are no seats for customers when doing a large transaction in home theatre.

Advice to Management

Get some seating in home theatre for staff and customers. The chairs don't have to be as relaxed as the appliance section but the taller bar chairs may be a good option at the point of sale.
