I’ve gotten hired for several jobs on as an article writer, and I’m generally happy with the site. You’ll find lots of really low paying jobs listed there, but fortunately you can usually just ignore them. Definitely worth signing up for if you’re looking for work.

I'vs been working here for half a year and haven't seen anything redeeming. The training was very sink or swim, my managers are very childish and constantly make up rules, then they love lying to their staff and overpromising things they never planned on delivering. It's fine if you just want some job experience, but don't plan on being here long or advancing. The favoritism is based on B.S. numbers and they are selective on who they want to help learn things. The corporate office is constantly changing and making policies that are solely made to piss off customers. One thing they have recently decided to do is make 2 people work 3 large sections. wow.

I was recently hired at the best buy mobile in Neshaminy Mall Bensalem PA. At first I thought it would be a good idea, I like phones so it made sense, I applied for seasonal but was then offered a part time position. I have NO name tag, no employee shirt, no schedule, I was told to look up the training videos while i sat in the back of the building alone for my orientation. Tonight I was asked to work and when I came in and asked what to do no one had a suggestion for me, just some young men who were more interested in the girls comming in then helping me. I want to switch best buy's and if thats not possible then quit. and Ive only worked 2 days.

bestbuy in niles store is horrible. A couple of the managers are nice and know what there doing. Actual store manager and some of the supervisors have no idea and think like this is going to be lifetime career when i'm just working part time. the discounts are awesome. It's just some of bestbuy corporate need to do better interviews when it comes to the store mangers. The one in niles doesn't know anything about the items in the store other then a couple gps units and an ipod touch. He doesn't even know how to work OMS (ordering system for bby.

I've been employed by Best Buy for a little under a year (1yr in Sept. '12) and I have to agree with Ms. Nutt - The Training is adequate, I get along with just about everybody in the store, and can genuinely say I enjoy my job. I work in the 'back of the house' - Inventory/Truck/Merchandising team. I tend to be a pain in the neck to please when it comes to actually being content with a job, so it actually says alot.

And It happens to be one of the busier stores. #454 - Westbury, NY.

I currently work for BBY. This store is a turd...take it for what it is...if you're a college or high school student, just smile and nod and pretend to bleed blue and that what the managers and supervisors in the store tell you is law but when you go home, leave that bull **** at the store and keep your eye on the prize and know that an education and drive with get you in a position where you don't have to depend on a shitty place like this for money and be bossed around by people with considerably less intelligence than yourself. -Brought to you by a cynical employee of Best Buy Store 345 in Huntington Station, NY...oh and I'm stealing as well....have been for months, but from the stories i've heard about the crappy store i work in it'll be years before they catch me, and I'll probably have been promoted several times Before it happens...which isn't a large feet because I'm smarter than my superiors.

You spelled *feat wrong. By you're lack of attention to correct sentence structure, and your way with words, it doesn't seem appropriate for you to be bragging about your intelligence. Also, regardless of your feelings towards Best Buy and the nature of employment, they are giving you a paycheck. So, stealing from them is pretty damn disrespectful. If you want to be a badass retail-thief, be a pro about it. Any idiot can steal from their job. No one is impressed, you slimeball. I hope you've gotten caught. Try integrity on, man.

Hmmm where to begin. Been with Best Buy for 6 months. Its a sinking ship. CEO jumps ship, Founder jumps ship, CTO jumps ship. Very depressing place to work. Complete morons in Gee Squad, no talent, no certs, just dumb kids that are all related in some sense. Too many managers, not enough talent, one likes to belittle you on the raido all day. Sell more services, services, more credit apps, more credit apps, more services. you are treated like a commissioned salesperson yet paid 90s wages. Should I go on?

It's partly because of clueless employess that Best Buy is losing customers.

Well Best Buy has its days in countdown. It is sad for does who will be joining the unemployment list. But I'm happy that this monster company is going down.

I have been working for BestBuy for about 2 years in California and the one I work at sucks beyond belief. Their is no advancement and more FAVORTISIM than you can imagine. I agree this place is a sinking ship and I feel like I have to find a life jacket. Some managers act like they care especially when the head people are there but when a real problem comes up it takes them awhile to address it. Even when it's something as simple as getting a new shirt or name tag forget it. I have been waiting for more than 4 months just to get a name tag. And the scheduling is redicilous. I understand the budget suck but try to give hours fairly and when it comes to school, they encourage you to go to school but when it comes to it they always schedule you when your in school than they get mad. You put in you available schedule and they accept it and they still schedule you against your availability. Don't they look at your schedule even if it's generated they have to look over it. Than I hear that an employee is making the schedules. I thought management was supposed to be doing this. And when they hear you blaming them they will retaliate like no other. When they want you out they will go after you they will find any reason to fire you. Don't get me wrong I'm grateful I have a job. I just wish there was better culture and I really wish it was like a family. But my store is not. What so ever.
