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

    Pros

    Co-workers were the best. Flexible with scheduling if you go to school or have another job. New tech products to play with.

    Cons

    Pay is unfair. New hires coming in with no experience making more if not the same as you even after having a year or so under your belt. Lots of favoritism from management. Moving from sales to a different department (Geek Squad) was being block by the GM. Had to get HR involed. After that GM was all buddy buddy with me for like a week.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good Pay. Great interactions with people and tech.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted. When you do get promoted you job will change shortly after or you will be laid off. Company cares more about profit than its employees. As a Manager you are expected to work until you fall over at witch point Best Buy will be there to ask. Why are you laying down? But you can get a $50 after just 10 years of service. If you hate your family , free time and dignity this is the place for you.
