Spécialiste de la gestion des produits (Former Employee), Pointe-Claire, QCNovember 24, 2014
A typical day working at best buy involved processing inventory in the warehouse, moving it to the floor and ensuring that inventory levels were secure. I learned many aspects of the inventory and customer service side of companies as well as the cost benefits of certain products.

The most enjoyable part of the job involved the variety in tasks during any given shift that needed to be performed as well as the atmosphere between the co-workers.

Productive, team driven work with great management
Digital Imaging Specialist (Former Employee), Coquitlam, British ColumbiaOctober 2, 2014
Pros: good atmosphere, team environment
Cons: no commission
I thoroughly enjoyed working for this company. It had great management, a team driven work environment, and a productive atmosphere. I learned a lot about sales and working with a team towards a goal. The hardest part of my job would have been standing for 8 hours at a time, and selling without making any commission. Unfortunatly the store I was working at had a very large amount of hours cut towards the end of my time there, and that is why I left the company.

Multimedia Specialist (Former Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: great team building exercises. great start for people aspiring to be in a sales position.
Cons: gets stressful when people scheduled doesn't show up to work
Usual retail sales environment wherein as a team you are tasked to sell a certain number of products and services to customers coming in the shop.

Requires good questioning skills to pinpoint the best product and service that the customer requires

A certain level of assertiveness and good communication skills are required for a candidate to succeed in this position.

The only pressure you'll get are from the managers when certain sales targets are not reached. Being assigned to good team leader makes the reaching of the target more fun and easier.

Productive and fun workplace with lots of technology
Sales Representative (Former Employee), MississaugaSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: perks and benefits based on performance
Cons: lots of standing
Best Buy is a technologically advanced work place where keeping up with the new trends in technology is absolutely important.
I have learnt that no two customers are alike, they all vary based on what they want, how they talk, think, and feel. In order to cater to each individual I must be genuine and speak in a way they will appreciate and in turn will build trust and eventually retention.
Co-workers are there to help you grow and make you better, its always good to have someone to bounce ideas off of and discuss situations.
The hardest and the most enjoyable part of the job was being the best sales representative, it is hard because it is a challenge and it is enjoyable because it creates a drive to be the best you can be.
