I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The managers at my store were very understanding and allowed for flexible schedules. They were great about teaching very good selling skills. They also promote from within.

Cons

During the holidays you were expected to give up every aspect of your life and work super long hours. The managers could get too familiar with the employees which made them bad at managing them.
