    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can have opportunities to move up if you demonstrate interest and master your role, while learning other roles. Employee discount is pretty good on select items.

    Cons

    The amount of raise you get paid even if you are a stellar performer is not enough, plain and simple. If you really want to get paid, then seek to elevate continously in the company. Waiting around for the raises is not sustainable for the long-term.
