Productive and fun workplace with lots of technology
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga5 September 2014
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.
Pros
Perks and Benefits based on performance
Cons
Lots of standing

Seasonal Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC15 August 2016
There are better places to work at, if you don't want to sign a contract each year. The environment is boring and monotonous. However, it is well organized.

A great group of management leaders with a great vision that has allowed the company to continue to excel in electronic industry while other companies have fallen. They will continue to be around when others wont. I learned how to manage people better while working at Best Buy. A place with great benefits, great discounts and RRSP/STOCK Options.
Pros
EPPS, RRSP, Employee Discounts

Bestbuy mobile mobile specialist (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 February 2015
Bestbuy is an amazing place to work, both the benefits of working there and the people are amazing, the company cares for its employees and makes sure that we get taken care of, I've learned to be more comfortable speaking with people working at bestbuy, a typical day at work is 6 activations a day, standing at the front greeting customers in and helping them right away.
Pros
great co workers, excellent company, great management, fun work enviorment
Cons
no hours, salary

TIBCO Developer (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC12 January 2015
Great benefits, hands on training, very competitive pay rates and the people are just great! The corporate culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of a team. The company mission statement is clear and it seems that all employees really are there to help people find jobs in their own way. Expectations and goals are high but the support is present to help all employees achieve set goals. Management wants to help their teams succeed

Good place with plenty of flaws
Vendeur jeux vidéo (Former Employee) –  Laval, QC2 May 2013
I had a good days there but sometimes the managers can be on your case even if you are doing what you have to do. If you did a lot of work they wouldn't leave you alone nor praise your work, you had more things to do but in a discouraging way they even wanted us to do some of their work because you were productive but wasn't worth it with the pay we had.
One of the reasons that kept me motivated was the team.
Without it, the place would fall apart
Pros
Great team, cost price
Cons
Not enough hours sometimes, low pay, pressuring managers
