terrible place to work as a career recommend for students
Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON5 November 2018
I worked there for a bit, but realized quickly that no matter if you were making sales and selling warranties(no commission yet your pressured to sell them) you still won't be appreciated for your efforts
Unless you follow there preppy cult like "work culture" you would be forced to be in like five group chats that would constantly go off even until late hours of the night. You were required too gloat about selling warranties and encourage the bragging of other employees or you would not be consider part of the team. It really a silly place to work and they like to believe themselves to be professional, but there nothing professional of those hideous blue shirts. Most of the co-workers where nice, but a lot had to basically, be fake to be accepted to work there , most weirdest work experience to date.
Pros
discount
Cons
short breaks, work culture(preppy cult)

Fun place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Canada14 October 2018
Individual stores have their own pros and cons and unique culture. Pleasure to work with such a good group of close employees and have the support to grow from the management team.

Management team however does display favoritism from time to time, most are fair however.

Great atmosphere, the people are fun to work with
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC21 September 2018
A typical day at Best Buy usually includes the morning meeting cheer (if you have a morning shift), where they will talk about the targets for the day for each department, where things went well the previous day and where there could be some improvements. I learned a lot about electronics goods, and I learned how to sell products and services. The work place culture is fun but people also know how to work hard. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers. The best part of the job is seeing the smile on the faces of your clients after they walk out the door with their products and/or protection services knowing they've made an informed decision because of you.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Sometimes difficult to get more hours
