      I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Discount is legit, nice stuff to work with, break room is legit, and we get discount on food and drinks

      Cons

      None really, but work is consuming sometimes, sometimes only you on your sale floor, some departments don’t really work as hard as yours sometimes

      Advice to Management

      Give me some commission on gsp. Also I like for a gaming console in the break room. Also I like more organized laptop bag section instead of rows of pegs.
