The work environment was somewhat questionable. Our sales performance was heavily tracked so a lot of times that meant forcing the wrong, more expensive products on customers. We were also basically forced to offer and persuade customers to apply for Best Buy Credit Card, even if it clearly wasn't in the customer's best interest.

Very fun place to work in, everybody is so chill and supportive. Pretty good company to work for. Worked well with my school schedule & coworkers always eager to help. There are good growth opportunities and some people make a career out of Best Buy which is cool. I just wish they had better pay.

Love the job I have had many job over the years within my same store but it’s hard to move up if you are a person with in opinion. But if you can problem solve, talk to people and make a connection you are in the good.

excellent work place. Excellent managers who actually want you to perform in the real world not just your current role. Managers are the most important part to any job. If they actually want to help you you will know almost instantly.

A typical summer entry level job. nothing too thrilling although I did cement my customer service skills and some of my technical skills at Best Buy a company that make it a little difficult to be flexible at if you aren't intending to work your way up to managerial positions
Best Buy didn’t have any clear path for growth for most of the ambitious employees that they have. The companies values didn’t match with my own as a person so that is something I look for in an employer to have the same value was I.

Best Buy had a very family oriented culture which I was surprised to see from such a large company. All the managers seemed invested in my personal growth. There was plenty of room for upwards mobility if I had planned to stay.

Best Buy is an okay company to start out at. They will give you a lot of skills but there is not always the room for advancement that you would like to see. Often it is a popularity contest rather than being based on your skills.
