Excellent training and opportunity for advancement
Sales Associate (Home Solutions) (Current Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 23 August 2016
Best Buy is a great place to work, with fantastic training programs and lots of opportunity for advancement.
The sales position is made much less stressful with a no commission strategy, and employees are given a range of techniques to close sales in a more constructive way for the customer. Associates are encouraged to sell the right products rather than the most expensive ones, allowing you to build better trust and a better long term relationship with the customer. Between e-learnings and seminars, associates are given many tools to properly assess the customer's needs, and get them the best solution.
The company encourages promotions and hiring from within for their Geek Squad and corporate positions. I personally want to get into the Geek Squad, and I've been put on the track to get there. I'm very happy with this company, and can see a long career with them.
