    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Culture, Own your own growth, awesome discounts, easily attainable goals, Good hours for full-time, work around school schedule

    Cons

    No benefits for part-time, takes a while to find a full time-position, restructure management every few years so scary job security for upper-level, kind of discouraging to those below those levels looking to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really, managers at my store are pretty cool and they remind us of the things we need to take care of often and check in with us daily.
