    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!
