    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally awesome people. The products you sell are generally interesting and the interactions with customers are usually positive.

    Cons

    Micromanaging over the intercom. If you are distracted easily, this probably isn't the job for you. Your mic/handheld is constantly buzzing with people calling for help in this or that department. There is also no commission if you work outside of Mobile. So you have immense sales pressure to sell Total Tech Support but no reward for doing so. You'll get a pat on the back and that's it.
