    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work itself isn't inherently difficult, but it can be interesting and rewarding, and you always have an opportunity to help someone. The people and environment make it a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    The money is beyond terrible, and individual performance appears to have little bearing on advancement or raises. If I could give compensation & benefits a 0, I would. Livable wages come at the supervisory/management level, and opportunities for that sort of advancement are scant despite attrition rates.

    Pros

    Great Pay, Benefits, Hours and depending where you are located, customers

    Cons

    Occasionally you might get bogged down by you leaders if there is no BP on the board or if GSP is low. It's Stat that best buy employees are held responsible for, however it is definitely only 25% of an employees effort required, the other 75% depends on that customer.
