    Pros

    You get to work with people, get the latest technologies, obviously get to work inside so no elements.

    Cons

    The lack of management, and the lack of pay for the benefits you provide to the store itself.

    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    I had a great team of members, the store was brand new and beautiful, and the management team were all really nice and upbeat. Got a discount on items (so-so) and the computer system was cool about learning new products. Management were great in placing me in a section I really liked (photography).

    Cons

    For $9 an hour, they really wanted the world from you. The commute going there was really rough as well and I had no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they deserve, and listen to your customers!
