          I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Great benfits both for part time and full time, lots of accommodations, career focus goals, non commission as well. Plus, rewarding monthly and quarter meeting and recognition.

          Cons

          Being in computers, you have some of the highest goals in the store, based on hour sales which ranges between $800-1300 an hour depending on the season. It's also retail work, and holiday time tends to be rough, blacked out dates from late November, to January.
