Work summary
Product Specialist (digital audio) (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBJuly 22, 2014
Pros: discounts on products
Cons: boxing day sales
What i learned in my previous employment positions was communicating with customers, one on one or in groups. Educating ourselves on the products that we sell, as well as educating customers on the products. I found that the people i worked with were great to get along with, everyone was very welcoming.

The hardest part of working as a sales product – more... specalist was learning about all the products that you had to sell on the floor, and making sure you give out the right details about the products to the customers that are interested and wanna know more about that product.

What i enjoyed the most about working as a product sales specialist was gaining more skills with working and dealing with customers, it made me feel more comfortable being able to approach people and not feel shy, i feel like my communication skills grew and I wish to continue to use that skill throughout any of my future employments. – less

Such a great place to work with such a fun environment
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Kitchener, ONJuly 15, 2014
Pros: 50% off my phone bill
Cons: not enough hours
Best Buy is a great place to work. A typical day for me would be to help as many customers as can and ensure that they leave with a good experience. I joke around with both the customers as well as the staff which make it any shift go by very quickly. The management is very good and is away willing to give you any help you may need and are very flexible – more... when it comes to any sickness or injury. I have learned so much working there, not only about the products I sold but I learned better ways to interact with the customers and mae sure I was recommending the right products. There are so many benefits and discounts that make this place one of my favourites to work at but it sometimes can be very difficult helping customers understand why a certain service could really benefit them. – less

Best Buy is the best place to learn about new electronics. The company allows its employe's to get first hand on products before they are open to public. By doing this we are able to learn in advance.

Best Buy Burnaby was okay
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCMay 8, 2014
Management is a mess, but the co-workers were great.

Enjoyed helping customers, but the learning curve is definitely steep.

Couldn't help but feel stranded as they do not provide ample training.

District Manager (Former Employee), VancouverMay 7, 2014
Pros: salary/benefits
Cons: long hours/travelling
It was an awesome growth environment allowing personal growth over the years! In the early part of my career, there was some personal sacrifice that had the be made to achieve the level of success needed to grow. Once you achieve that, the sky is the limit!
I would personally recommend this organization for anyone.
