    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    management at my location was nice/understanding, gave me time off when I required, weren't too strict, nice store, relaxing to work at

    Cons

    hourly wage wasn't great, it was my first job so I accepted the near minimum hourly salary but didn't get a raise after almost 2 years working there, for 2020 standards it would be especially bad
