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

    Pros

    1. Friendly environment- My coworkers all were great and very professional. Made work enjoyable. 2. Good management at the store- The managers at the store was always helpful and made sure to give positive feedback on employees. 3. The pay was ok but better than most places- as a company, they reward stores that are doing really well in sales. Which makes sense to me. Achieve sales goals. Get a percentage bonus on... your paycheck. I remember the first time working there and getting a bonus, got a tad over $100 extra on my paycheck!
