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

    Pros

    I really liked the people working there. Coworkers seemed to be higher quality than typical people you would expect in a retail environment. The working environment feels professional and responsible where it needs to be, but it is also relaxed as well.

    Cons

    The work can be tedious and frustrating at times. Scheduling can be unpredictable for certain positions.
