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

    Pros

    Everything! For a starting job, they do not give less than $10 an hour, based on your experience it will increase. Coworkers are amazing and I've never been in a store that the management was horrible.

    Cons

    When it is audit time, if you are selected...good luck!

    Pros

    Some of the pros for working with Best buy were obviously the discounts on items which can be extremely cheap.

    Cons

    You had a weekly sales goal that needs to be met and that can be stressful at times. There will always be angry customers but you just gotta know how to handle the situation

    Upper management was lenient. Had a mix between micro managing and allowed employees to have control
