That means, DISCOUNTS!

Sorry, I'm really excited because it's been two years since i've had one. Just curious.. does anyone else here work at Best Buy? If so, got any sweet or horror stories?

What are you doing, and how old are you?

I was thinking of working there next summer, so yeah.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

now answer me this..how old do I have to be? and what are you gonna be doing?

I'm gonna apply there if I'm old enough. and did you apply online?
#7
Yeah, I applied online and they called me in for an interview. I think as long as you're 16 and over, they could find a position for you.

I'm sorry.

Yay for corporate fascism! It must be because of a massive markup...

Discount varies per item...
Best Buy is truly a unique corporation...despite the guy who said his friend told him it sucked, I've only heard and experienced the best from Best Buy.
What state do you live in, TS?

You lucky son of a bitch, I've applied for Best Buy 3 times and they really don't want to hire me

Yeah just saw Canada nevermind haha... you'll be a Rep 1 it sounds like. HF training...


What does that even mean? XD
#21
I really want to. I won't be able to get a job until next year, and the Best Buys here are really hard to get jobs at, because tons of people want to work there, but I really hope to work there.

I would have to deal with idiots all day, more than likely, but it would be pretty cool.

I asked what state and you live in Canada, so NVM.
Rep 1 = cashier. And you'll get owned by training. So have fun.
I hope you get a declined check

I hate best buy because of there customer service

I hate you because of your inability to spell "their".
But seriously, working at Best Buy would suck, especially if you work on the floor of in the "Geek Squad", at least from an ethical standpoint. The floor staff uses a lot of dirty tricks or is just plain incompetent, and the Geek Squad just formats your hard drive as a substitute for real service.

eh, don't have aim, whatevs, thanks for the information.

Then to clarify: yes training sucks. You'll find out... if your store is as serious as mine (large town?) then you'll get to do paperwork on customers...and you'll need to offer PRPs/PSPs/Magazines/RZ cards/RZM cards... which means you'll hate Best Buy for a while.

See if you can get a floor job.
#29
Haha your training can't beat mine. 25 hours in 5 days and it's all paid almost 200$ for doing nothing.
