    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of fun, lots of cool, young people to work with. Lots of information to learn. There's a certain prestige of working there.

    Cons

    Pushy with sales, accessories (x10), credit cards, etc. Sometimes I didn't feel ethical to sell things with a tv that the customer obviously didn't need. Yes, the associates aren't paid on commission. But the loophole is more sales= more hours, and vice versa. Unrealistic sales goals.
