    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    With the right mentor in your department you can really learn alot. This company is always encouraging you to learn so it is an absolute perfect match for me.

    Cons

    The annoying hazing program, aka getting your blue shirt, which is just Best Buy's hazing program to make you feel like a noob for 2 months at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the hazing, but besides that great job!
