If you want to kiss butt you'll do well
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON10 August 2019
As a company they brag about being rated one of Canada's top employers, and they love to mention their "no pressure" sales approach. It's all a sham. Many of my co-workers will resort to scare tactics or lies to sell service plans. They're all about gross margin and upselling. Typical corporate, everything is about profit, and management is all about making sure they get their bonuses.

really nice place to work for students, teaches some good sales skills because they are really focused on selling protection plans etc, which can be annoying. really good benefits package after 6 months, salary is minimum wage, its easy to progress in the company though.

The sitcoms doesn't do enough justice
Various Positions (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON12 June 2017
From opening the doors to locking up, it's always a full day at Best Buy. Employees always get their own handful of customers, especially during back to school season and Christmas. Anyone who claims to be courageous should take a shift during Boxing Day. However, there is always plenty of support from the store management and the fellow employees, as long as they are also not swamped.
Pros
Employee discount, stock options, flexible working hours
Cons
Job insecurity

It was a good seasonal job
Product Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON3 May 2017
The job was overall good, but a lot of products kept on going missing. The store wasn't that much organized. In the mornings, there was this one manager who would always come late and then the employees on the shift including me would have to punch in late aswell.
Pros
Good people to work with
Cons
The pay decreased as soon as the winter season was over.

Fun workplace with great co-workers
Agent (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON26 January 2017
A lot of the actual work was tedious tasks like shipping units out for further repair or filing paper work. Occasionally you would have the opportunity for a more serious repair but that was mostly looked down upon and left for shipping to "Geek Squad City".
Pros
Fun co-workers
Cons
tedious work
