No Value
Home Solution Specialist (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON7 October 2019
The only real way to grow is if someone likes you more than the quality of your work.
Compensation is terrible.
There are a lot of promises, but nothing concrete. Benefits, like discounts, are an illusion.

Constant restructuring meant no room for advancement
Product Process Associate (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON21 March 2018
For what it was, it was a great low pressure job but there was no room to grow as everyone fought for the 1 full time position in our department. This was done so no one qualified for benefits and schedules could be flexible as possible though

Management plays favourites
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON15 February 2018
The culture and environment is absolutely amazing! But it is very clear to see that management has favourites when it comes to shifts. There is almost like a clique like environment with management and some employees. The pay could have also been better. Other than that it's an amazing place to work!
Pros
Gorgeous staff room, Fun environment, Easy job
Cons
Cliquey, Management playing favourites, Low pay.

All employees are well taken care of along with the customers within the store. The managers are easy going and provide everyone with the equal amount of respect.

A workplace that illustrates having fun while being the best.
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON22 January 2017
Everyday at Bestbuy is different, but its same in the fact that everyday is an exciting and fun day. I learned alot through bestbuy. I learned how to manage a team. How to run a department smoothly. How to hit targets in a fun and productive way so that all employees are really engaged to work. The workplace culture is always friendly and fun. Everyone is always smiling at work and you can go to anyone when you need help! The mornings are started with a game that will get everyone perked up for the exciting day ahead. I enjoyed coming to work and just giving exceptional customer service, allowing the our clients to always come back looking for me!

Great place to learn Sales
Home Solutions Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON7 October 2016
Starting work is fast paced. you have to get used to making sales within the first few days on the job. The job did not offer much support to new employees, and did not show much regard to the customers.

very busy workplace, there is no room for slow performance
GEEK SQUAD SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON18 January 2016
Geeksquad has been a fun but exhausting place to work, the workload is literally non stop and we are always under labor. There are no Pauses and you have to know your computers well for diagnosis purposes.
Pros
keeps you busy and you learn more about computer repairs quickly
Cons
not enough labor to complete the tasks

Too many part-timers
Microsoft Consultant (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON17 January 2016
My typical day at work involves managing the Microsoft Windows Store by delegating, supervising, and coaching the connected solutions sales staff. Responding to customers needs and concerns relating to Microsoft products that are sold by Best Buy.
Recommending the right products and devices after carefully evaluating the customers needs and asking the necessary lifestyle questions.
I have definitely learnt how a large retail technology chain store operates. It's standard operational procedures and its security measure implementation. Management is not very professional when it comes to managing employees, except in a few exceptional cases.
Co-workers are generally nice and cooperative and willing to learn, most of them are students and therefore already have the basic skills in order to learn quickly. There is really no hard part of the job, I would rather say the most challenging part of the job is to maintain that high level of delivering the customer service experience to those rather impatient, fussy and at times very cynical customers that you encounter from time to time. On the contrary what I enjoy most is meeting all types of customers from various educational and career backgrounds and you do learn many things during the course of engaging them in my usual getting connected dialogs.
