    I have been working at Best Buy

    Pros

    My coworkers are smart, we have fun while being the best, and I get to sell gadgets.

    Cons

    The customers can be difficult sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be aware that I feel like I do not know the path to promotion. It was easy to become a supervisor but now I am totally lost and do not know what they want from me to be promoted again.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Fast paced environment that develops learning experience and skills. Ability to learn about the environment. The best part about the experience was learning about computers. There is thorough training to make sure you are not only familiar with the software aspects of troubleshooting but also with the hardware aspects. By the end of my time there I had built up enough confidence to build my own computer/familiarize myself...

    Cons

    Pay. No matter what, unless you're satisfied with a low income job there's no point. It will take years to advance and you have to work two times harder than most professional entry level positions.
