Great Place

With the exception of a couple of managers, the management team was excellent. The scheduling process was awesome. If you don't like selling extended warranties you'll have a hard time.

Great place to work. Fun work atmosphere
Product Processor (Current Employee) –  Kanata ON7 May 2013
I work in Product Process, so a typical day would be receiving items, sorting through truck products, pricing movies, down stocking items from the warehouse to the shelves. Some times im also Loss Prevention, where i stand at the front, greet customers, and watch the cameras. The most enjoyable part of the job would be my co-workers, they are all fun to talk to, and work with. Its a great work atmosphere.
Pros

Cons
not enough shifts or hours during the summer

its gone down hill
Digital Audio Senior (Former Employee) –  Kanata, ON30 April 2013
I started working at Best buy in 2008. For the first year it was a great place to work. However after that things went down hill. The company didn't do a good job at dealing with the changing market. They fire higher payed employees just so they can bring someone in that will work for less. The management as well doesn't seem to want to follow the companies own guidlines on many different issus. As well many managers and the employees they like would get away with murder. If you'd try to bring it up your the bad guy. I found each year less and less good people would work at the store. However if your lazy and want to get payed for doing almost no work its a great place. However if you take pride in working hard and want to work in a place that others do too, don't work for best buy!
Pros
discount
Cons
changing schedules, short lunch, bad managment
