Pros: work experience working in the corporate world and health benefits are nice.

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.

Everyone who worked there was friendly and did their best to make you feel comfortable and train you. Managers were friendly and every morning before opening they had a meeting to highlight the hardest working employees, set goals for the week/month and to do a team cheer.

Cashier (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONMay 23, 2013
Pros: good discounts and deals
Cons: standing for long hours.
A typical day includes punching in and getting straight to work. Start with my till of about $150 and get to my station to handle the heavy load of customers during the beginning of the Christmas holiday season. Balancing the cash as well as fulfilling my duties to the operations management was sometimes difficult, especially on boxing day. Management – more... were engaged and helped me to adjust during my time there and the co-workers were friendly but mainly serious. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning about the certain intricacies of the business and how certain things work on the inside. I am always up for a life lesson. – less
