good job
Sales Associate / Product Expert (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 August 2017
easy job, but the fact there waqs no commision provided no added motivation for the sales staff, and in comparison to other electronic stores while we did have the products the customer service was not there.

Connected Solutions Specialist (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 July 2017
It's a great workplace to be in. Very friendly staff and easy to get along with. As a full-timer shifts are at the utmost priority for the leadership team as they want their full-timers to lead by example.

Many career options to explore - one of the better companies to work for
Sr. Systems & Process Analyst (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC29 July 2017
Depends on the department and the role you are in; the working experience can vary a great deal. Some positions are high pressure and high reward; other could be mundane and uninspiring - so choose wisely.
Pros
Great compensation and benefit comparing others in the industry
Cons
Company direction and initiatives can be unpredictable; very much bottom-line driven

Good work environment but bad hours

good pay

bad hours

Great People - Thats It
HOME THEATER SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB25 July 2017
The staff are absolutely some of the best people you will come across, and is the best work environment to be around.

Overall, okay job for the beer money if you have any interest in electronics and providing great customer service. Just don't expect to buy a lot of beer.

Would never consider it again
Product Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NS25 July 2017
Got a new boss in the department that would rather talk behind people's backs and report to management and human resources because they are insecure. Never received any help from management regarding issues. Management would throw employees under the bus for their short-comings.
Pros
Great staff
Cons
Horrible management

Sales consultant (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC19 July 2017
this was a great high school job, worked with my schedule well. It taught great skills such as being knowledgable about many different products, facing challenges, and rush hour. Management was great at teaching skills and having a positive environment.

Winter season
Product Process and Loss Prevention (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON19 July 2017
Very fast paced environment when working during the winter season. Boxing day is the day they train and work you up to. Then once the holiday season is over they drop many employees.

Product Process Specialist
Product Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON19 July 2017
A great environment; however, as a product process specialist. This position was not uplifting when having to stand at the front receptionist the majority of the day. However, merchandising items kept me busy which allowed me to communicate with customers; which taught me how to communicate with customers.
Pros
Joyful, Uplifting employees
Cons
Standing for long hours

Mobile Lead (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON17 July 2017
If you are motivated and want to move up they will coach you and help you get to the place you want to be. The environment is a good place to work and being in a small town store offers a chance to get to know customers.
Pros
Great Discounts
Cons
Weekend shifts

Better Retail position than most
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Downsview, ON14 July 2017
With the exception of a store like Apple, I believe bestbuy gives you close to the best you're gonna get in terms of money and responsibliities compared to most big-chain electronics retail stores (like The Source, WalMart, and most cellphone stores).
Pros
Fun environment, lax responsibilities, good culture
Cons
Horrible wages, contradictory management, very little upward movement (its who you're buds with, not your credentials)

Sales/Stock Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 July 2017
at the start of every shift you feel like you're going to a friends house to socialize but at the same time every day is very productive. learnt a lot about sales and how to operate a warehouse and the best customer service experience I've ever had.

Management, pay,and job duties are terrible. only redeeming factor is from aside the GM the people are friendly.
Sales Associate in the Computer Department (Current Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB13 July 2017
A day of the salesman will start off by grabbing a clipboard and walking around making sure customers are being helped. When its dead (the entire summer) you clean, we have janitors but they'll make you clean instead. Majority of my coworkers are friendly most actually being high school students because no one with any actual experience on how a business should be ran lasts long. The General manager frequently engages in shady business practices such as forcing people to quiet by cutting hours down or just flat out saying i accept your resignation, most are too fed up or afraid to fight it. also if your a student expect to be paid far less than even a newer untrained regular employee, full time or not.
Pros
Friendly people.
Cons
Everything else.
