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

    Pros

    Easily achievable sales goals, easy to move up in the company. Great part-time job if in school, and the people who work there are great.

    Cons

    You need to have so much patience because half the people who come in want tech help from tech savy people and arent willing to purchase anything. You need to sift through a lot of time wasters and people just coming in to 'hang out'. This is necessary for you to hit your sales goals.
