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

    Pros

    Learning products and how they connect them to other devices improving quality of life. Some of the people were fun to work with helping making the day fly by.

    Cons

    Constant Scheduling conflicts interfered with school. Even though I was part time I was working full time hours, while others who needed/wanted more time wouldn't get it. I had to constantly give hours away to those who needed it so I could attend my night classes. Even working so many hours I often asked to be given a full time spot since they were giving me 40hrs+ a week. Since I was working for lower wages than others they wouldn't give me the benefits that came with full time.
