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

    Pros

    Pay was great for someone right out of high school, monthly bonus was cool, I got to work indoors in A/C, employee discounts were exceptional but you have to wait 30 days as part time to get discount

    Cons

    Standing on feet all day, closing duties can take a while. I also hated having to fix other employees' mistakes and messes.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Fun environment. Decent hours. Good for a part time job for students or those working two jobs. Awesome discount!!!

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Small raises (10cents/6months). Many positions were given to outside workers instead of promoting internally. Health and dental Benefits were terrible (if you had any at all).

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within the store instead of hiring outside.
