I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than a year)

Pros

I worked with a lot of great people, it can be like a second family.

Cons

For non commission there is a lot of pressure on sales. My store had some shady backdoor business going on, and my GM picked her favorites and let it be known. She only promoted people who were her skin color.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually view what your Managers are doing with your stores and make sure that all employees get the same opportunities.

    Simple retail, non-commission job. Truly nothing special.
