    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Have a chance to see everything that comes in the store. Learn how to do paper work and have a chance to work in the warehouse without any distractions.

    Cons

    You have to cover AP breaks, lunch, etc. You're also in charge of all carry outs, which is fine until you are in the middle of doing something like receiving and have to stop since the customer comes first.

    Always something new to learn with Electronics and Technology. Great atmosphere to grow and share experiences with others.

    Too much pressure on selling instead of advising to explore and enrich the possibilities. Goals should be based on personal interaction with customers as a collective more than favoriting the highest sellers.
