This location, the staff were rude, the incentives and motivation were lacking to say the least. They cared nothing for work/life balance and falsely offer you promotions.
Cons

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB15 May 2017
Flexible schedule if time off is needed for personal matters. Very one is treated fairly and with great deal of respect.
Pay is alright but for what it lacks it is made up for by employee perks and group benefit plan available to all staff.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 May 2017
A very diverse culture. Would deal with plenty of different customers everyday looking for anything from making big ticket purchases on tvs and sound systems to someone coming in to find the right cable to connect devices. This job helped me learn a lot about customer service and about the new gadgets and media out in the market today.

Camera and Computer Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kanata, ON10 May 2017
With the exception of a couple of managers, the management team was excellent. The scheduling process was awesome. If you don't like selling extended warranties you'll have a hard time.
Pros
Great Culture
Cons
Selling Unnecessary Waranties

Management is a Joke
Product Process Associate (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON7 May 2017
I worked my butt off for this company for months and still got little to no hours, newer people got promoted before I ever did. I remember one time I spent a whole 2 hours cleaning an entire warehouse of tv's BY MYSELF and still was told by my manager "you gotta earn the hours". Management would not lead by example but instead lead by fear. My supervisor in particular would literally tell me to shut up for just saying something nice. I am probably just unlucky to have landed in that part of Best Buy but who knows. The company itself has no growth for part timers, and has more initiative to harass there employees before commending them for a job well done.
Pros
Little to none
Cons
Terrible management, terrible growth, overall just terrible.

Productive and fan workplace
Senior Accountant, Controllership (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC4 May 2017
Great company to work for, friendly and helpful employees, fair pay and benefits
Started working independently almost from day one, minimal training was provided. There were some outdated procedure descriptions. However, if you are quick learner and self-starter, minimal training will not be an issue.
Pros
great workplace, friendly employees, shuttle service from Metrotown SkyTrain station to Best Buy CHQ

Nice place to work. Friendly staff.
Geek Squad Technician (Current Employee) –  Kamloops, BC4 May 2017
Typical day at work consists of greeting and helping customers, cleaning and organizing the store.
Learned how to work well with others and provide great customer service.
Lower management were great very helpful and hardworking, upper management sit in the office and bark orders. Not to say they don't work hard, but you should lead by example.
Good culture, very friendly staff.
The hardest part is somewhat the same as the most enjoyable part. Helping customers.
Pros
Staff discount

Good managers and upper staff, management (corporate) tied managers hands
Associate (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC3 May 2017
Upper staff at the store want to help the employees with wage and living but corporate won't allow the managers to raise the pay and are basically setting a cap for what a certain sales position would make. An employee working in tvs would have a max income of about 15$ an hour for full time but if the employees life or current situation requires a higher pay and the manager would want to raise the pay, but corporate would not allow it due to a cap they had set for what each position is allowed to make at a maximum.
Pros
Good store management, good benefits, good team environment
Cons
Corporate regulations with zero flexibility.

It was a good seasonal job
Product Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON3 May 2017
The job was overall good, but a lot of products kept on going missing. The store wasn't that much organized. In the mornings, there was this one manager who would always come late and then the employees on the shift including me would have to punch in late aswell.
Pros
Good people to work with
Cons
The pay decreased as soon as the winter season was over.
