    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and decent pay for a retail chain. Working environment was clean, the store made it a major priority to keep inventory stocked on shelves and everything neat and organized.

    Cons

    The company fosters a much too competitive atmosphere amongst the staff. Unrealistic sales goals. Constant pressure to sell customers products they don't need just to get your number up.
