Worked for the company for over 6 years. Years ago the culture of the company was very different now the sales team gets a lot of pressure, the managers are from other companies and often very inexperienced. In the many companies that I have worked for this one had the most turn over. Depending on the store you land on the story might be different but at the end the ethics are now the same, get a long with the managers no matter how hard or how bad you work. Their way to deal with "bad" employees is one - Gather paper work to get them out of here- Other companies will work on addressing internal issues and work with them.
I actually enjoyed working at Best Buy. The branch I was at in Kanata had lots of fun people to work with, a good management team, and good clients. I made friends here that I still speak to and hang out with from time to time if I'm in the area. Sure, the pay isn't great, you don't really get many benefits, but there is opportunity to advance if you make a name for yourself. Overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend working there to people looking for a part time job whilst in school.
