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

    Pros

    Fast paced. Knowledgeable leadership. I have gained alot of knowledge of general practices in inventory, merchandising and inventory control that can easily transfer to other careers or higher positions within. Can be really enjoyable with a good team in the warehouse.

    Cons

    Can be high stress especially during the holidays and leading up to our yearly inventory audit. There is a lot to learn especially in my position.
