Computer Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sterling, VA – December 12, 2013
Pros: friendly and fun atmosphere.
Helping each customer find the right computer was an interesting and fun puzzle to work on. Each customer had their own wants and needs and finding the right computer for them was rewarding.
I was constantly reminded to sell protection plans, which felt very forced and made me uncomfortable a few times when I wasn't able to get customers to buy it. Most customers did not want a plan and I felt pressured to make them buy one.
Asset Protection/Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Albany, NY – March 25, 2015
Best Buy was a decent experience being that I was able to balance life as a full time student and life as a Best Buy employee. The hardest part about the job was balancing my work schedule along with my school schedule because Best Buy is a very demanding company.
Sales Team Lead computing and DI (Former Employee), grand island ne – March 25, 2015
Pros: great healthcare and enviornment
Joe Glasser and team are the most intense, fun, and exciting people to work for or with in the Grand Island area. To start everyday there is a "chalk talk" where we put out all the best info possible for a successful sales day. i learned much about retail sales and what it takes to be successful in that field.
hardest part of the job in the lack of a set schedule and missing family time with holidays. most enjoyable is the experience around the workplace.
Front End Lead (Current Employee), Mesa, AZ – March 25, 2015
Pros: Benefits, Room for Growth
Cons: Pressure to hit targets
Best Buy is a great place to work for a first job or while going to school. Best Buy supports the communities around the stores by reaching out and teaching people about technology. You have clear daily and monthly goals which is communicated by management. But you do feel a lot of pressure to hit those goals, with little advisement. Overall the company is good and the customers are great. It's always a good feeling teaching people something new about technology.
Home Theater Specialist (Former Employee), Green Bay, WI – March 24, 2015
I had a main job that was my main source of income and was required to travel for said job. While trying to make sure that all of my shifts were covered I spoke with 3 different managers about the problem.
Always gretting customers. Great customer service everyday. Through my time at best buy I had the pleasure of learning how to upgrade phones, how to type rapidly. Hardest part of my time at best buy was the management. I most enjoyed working with the people I worked with they were amazing!

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lake Geneva, WI – March 23, 2015
A typical day is putting stock away, helping customers and fixing price labels. I have learned a lot about working with the public again. The management is just okay depending on who you work with. Certain higher people just care about the company and not how they treat their employees. Hardest part of the job would have to be lifting the T.V.s all day long. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the public and certain coworkers.
