    I worked at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Best Buy is a very fun, high pace sales job. What people behind the scenes don't realize is the constant push to make sales quotas.

    Cons

    Sometimes management is very pushy with sales numbers.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fairly flexable hours. Easy to forum a relationship with the other employees.

    Cons

    HR is worse than useless. Company was in violation of USERRA for almost 2 months once I came back from Military service. New hires (the past 3 months) are making more than me (I have been working here for almost 4 years now.) Very rare to be able to move into other positions when coming on seasonal, expect part time your entire time there.
