    I have been working at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Your experience at best buy will depend on what store you work in and the management of that store. I love my store, I love the people I work with (most of them) and I love my job. That would be different in a store with a different culture.

    Nice starting pay, start at 11.25.
    Nice flexibility.

    Very willing to teach if you'll learn. I personally wouldn't go into sales, I stay ops and in particular inventory/merch since you don't have to deal with customers unless by chance, and even then it's for a moment. Except for carry outs and such.

    Can be extremely physically demanding especially in the holidays due to the sheer amount of product being delivered and having to be unloaded.

    Cons

    Nothing in particular that's noteworthy, just normal job stuff.
