Everywhere (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 25 August 2017
Over the year that i was at Best Buy I really enjoyed my job. I worked with some great people, and it was a fun place to work. I also saw a lot of people come and go. The time I started and by the time I had left about 70% of the staff was new. In the span of only a year! A big component to that was the gossipy, unprofessionalism of the management.
The work environment has so much potential to be better than what it is.
Overall I enjoyed my job and team members, but wasn't a fan of some of the management.
The work was fun, Friendly Associates, Good discounts.
Lack of steady hours, Very high turnover, Lots of favouritism, Cattiness in Managment/Leadership.

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.

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.

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
