Great company
Management (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB18 April 2019
Long shifts, but team was amazing. They were the only reason I worked there as long as i did. Boxing days and big sales days were tough. Hard to start a family with the hours in retail.

Amazing work enviroment and great place to work!
Manager (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC20 December 2018
Best Buy Canada has amazing people and amazing values. The company has great programs to help you grow both professionally and personally. Facilities at Canadian Head Quarters are plenty. They have a gym (24x7); cafeteria has deli, grill, chef’s special and salad bar, cheaper postal option, dry cleaning service and many more. The growth opportunities are numerous, given that there are so many departments in the company, there is no hinderance to growth. Initial pay is less, but as you show your skill set, tremendous opportunities await. Overall, a fantastic organization to work for.
Pros
Culture, Values, People, Brand
Cons
Initial Pay is less. But this increases as you add value to the company.

Work until you can work no more
Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC26 July 2018
If you are a younger person gaining work experience, you will gain numerous skills and benefits from your time with Best Buy.

If you have bills, such as car payments, rent/mortgage, childcare etc., you will not be able to live comfortably off of the wages offered by Best Buy.

Should you obtain a management position, the trade off for pay, will be in the loss of your work/life balance. Salaried employees are quietly expected to work 50-60 hours / week, miss holidays, and be available 24/7, 365.

You are not allowed a truthful or genuine opinion at Best Buy if you wish to keep your job. Their annual "anonymous survey" is far from such. If you say anything against your management or the company; particularly if it threatens their "top 100" employer status, you will be "coached out."

I have spent years "coaching out" the bad seeds. After realizing there was truth to what some of them had to say, and that my personal life outside of a blue shirt had value, I would not recommend Best Buy to anyone looking for full time employment.
Pros
Abundance of high fives and pats on the back!
Cons

Great Workplace
Management (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 June 2018
This is a very fun place to work, you will meet a lot a great people. The company doesn't pay excellently and a lot of your ability to get promoted is based on being in the correct position at the right time. But overall a good workplace.

Fun
Manager (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC25 March 2018
Ensured all associate had assignments and executed before store opened. Hardest part of the job was being able to get a break as sometimes I was the only manager in the store. Most enjoyable part being the first to see the latest in technology.
