Geek Squad Installer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 October 2013
I have worked in different departments. the only time they let you move is if it will greatly benefits them. they let go people who take pride in their work.
they pay as little as possible no matter how much effort you put. they only reward the sales team as they bring in money and any of the service workers or installers get nothing but told the company would not work with out them.
Discounts for staff
Lack of respect for employees, horrid pay. Non-caring management
Working for Best Buy is challenging and full of surprises every day brings challenge and make every day interesting.

Senior Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 13 August 2017
Even though I was one of the staff who were "downsized" during the switch from FS to BBY I would apply to this company again in a heart beat. They work as a team and truly want what is best for their staff.
Seasonal Sales associate (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 11 August 2017
a typical day at work would be busy and filled with new learning oppourtunities. I learned a ton about how sales business works inside and outside of the best buy business. The management was good, they were understanding and included employees with tasks. Workplace culture was amazing, very friendly environment. Hardest part of the job would be improvising when no manager is available for assistance. Most enjoyable part of the job in my opinion was making sales and helping customers.
Excellent product knowledge, learning on-the-job and training modules.
Geek Squad level 3 Field Service Agent (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 4 August 2017
Everyday is a different adventure while meeting great clients and associates. Trained me to be a calibrator and a Home Theater specialist. Management is fair and you always knew what they expect from you.
freedom to make good business decisions on your own.
Sales Associate / Product Expert (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 August 2017
easy job, but the fact there waqs no commision provided no added motivation for the sales staff, and in comparison to other electronic stores while we did have the products the customer service was not there.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 3 August 2017
Management is very cool, have a fun way of teaching and encouraging sales and targets. Can move up pretty quick in the store if you work hard, the most enjoyable thing about the job is the coworkers and the benefits
Connected Solutions Specialist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 July 2017
It's a great workplace to be in. Very friendly staff and easy to get along with. As a full-timer shifts are at the utmost priority for the leadership team as they want their full-timers to lead by example.
Many career options to explore - one of the better companies to work for
Sr. Systems & Process Analyst (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 29 July 2017
Depends on the department and the role you are in; the working experience can vary a great deal. Some positions are high pressure and high reward; other could be mundane and uninspiring - so choose wisely.
Great compensation and benefit comparing others in the industry
Company direction and initiatives can be unpredictable; very much bottom-line driven
Customer Service/ Warehouse (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 July 2017
good job for experience. not sure if I would recommend to anyone. from my experience in the company, there are a lot of benefits to working at best buy however, if you stress out easily or don't work well under pressure, I wouldn't consider best buy a place to work at.

Product Process Specialist (Former Employee) – Sydney, NS – 25 July 2017
Got a new boss in the department that would rather talk behind people's backs and report to management and human resources because they are insecure. Never received any help from management regarding issues. Management would throw employees under the bus for their short-comings.
