Poor Management. Only care about money
Geek Squad Installer (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 23, 2013
Pros: discounts for staff
Cons: lack of respect for employees, horrid pay. non-caring management
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 – more... would not work with out them. – less

Product Expert / Commissioned Sales Associate (Current Employee), TorontoOctober 14, 2013
Show up at work, speak to colleagues, print out reports and promotion and proceed to helping customers and selling services with all products. Co-workers are the best part of the job, the management can be hit or miss and interchangeable.

an ok job while in school
sales rep (Current Employee), montrealOctober 6, 2013
Pros: around 10% discount after 3 month
Cons: ...
Depending of the BestBuy and the people that you work with it can be an ok job or even fun at times.
In sales there will always be a certain pressure to sell the Protection Plan and the salary is nothing to brag about.

Great environment...poor job security
Software contractor (Current Employee), Burnaby, BCOctober 1, 2013
Pros: great people
Cons: poor job security
This has a great atmosphere. People are professional, smart, and mature. However, this is not the place to go if you value job security. The company seems to cut valuable staff but keep less valuable managers who are making poor choices for being competitive in a growing online marketplace.

Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCSeptember 27, 2013
Pros: great environment, good people
Cons: no set schedule, changed from week to week, day to day
Typical day involved organizing departments, putting away shipping, helping customers who are looking around. I learned here how important it is to have a positive atmosphere with positive feedback from management. Co-workers were great and helped out alot. Hardest part would be handling trouble makers.

Senior Coordinator, Project Resources (Current Employee), Burnaby, BCSeptember 5, 2013
An incredibly fast paced environment with excellent employees and quality management. A typical day revolves around budgeting, forecasting, tendering, and monitoring projects with tight timelines and high dollar values. The largest challenges are completing the projects with the timelines given yet the most enjoyable part is seeing them completed.

Mobile Manager (Former Employee), Belleville, ONJune 24, 2013
Pros: staff discount
Cons: retail hours
Always lots of fun when you walk through the doors. Its a retail environment and you need to be extremely flexible with your availability. Over the years I've learned that retail is changing and you need to be able to adapt to survive. I have created relationships with fellow associates as well as customers that I will last a lifetime.
