I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great atmosphere where growing and learning from challenging situations takes you a step further in your development.

Cons

At times, there will be situations when you will deal with difficult, hard to please people. Don't let this get the best of you, in the end you are there to provide a great experience no matter what. So do your best and usually you are able to turn an escalated situation into a positive one.
