    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent Work Environment, relaxed staff for the most part. Fun products to sell.

    Cons

    Very Poor Pay and Compensation at the hourly level. Employee Discount is only helpful on Cables/small things. Not much room for advancement. Company is squeezing store hours heavily forcing employees to cover large areas by themselves.
