Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 18 April 2018
Coworkers are fun. sometimes management is not the best. Great learning environment in regards to product knowledge and learning to deal with the tougher customers. There are definitely some perks to working here.
MCSA (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 April 2018
I really enjoy working here as a part time job. They are flexible & understanding & i really enjoy coming to work. I started here when the economy was slow & this was my only income. They were very understanding when i got a full time job & had to change my availability & reduce my hours.

Home Solutions Specialist (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 28 March 2018
It was super easy going. A lot of fun people made for a good work environment. Hours were good during holiday season but dwindled off afterwards. Management was usually pretty good and my sales supervisor helped me out a lot with hours

The distribution center is surprisingly family oriented. You start the morning with a meeting with your coworkers, the team leader, and the supervisor. You discuss how the productivity has been and what you can do to make the workplace a more embracing environment.
Spacious lunch room, Game room with table tennis, game consoles, multiple tvs, a computer, etc.
many competent workers so if you want job security you will have to meet their expectations
Product Process Specialist (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 26 March 2018
Always a busy department. Unloading trucks and re-stocking twice a week. Always changing prices. Resetting sections all the time. Sometimes deals could be had with buying equipment direct from vendors. Favouritism was very obvious from some dept managers. Lazy co-workers made it tough for the department to funtion properly a lot of the time and they were never reprimanded. District management were narcissistic and big headed and treated staff as commodities. Forget holidays like Christmas and Easter because they will work you like a dog with long hours and very early starts. Working for best buy is ok if you want part time work to fund your fun in between school work. As a career it's not feasible. You're only ever going to be as good as the last warranty you sold.
Good store managers. Staff discount. Some great co-workers
Horrible district managers. Too many lazy co-workers. Bad pay and high expectations for job role. H
Was an alright job, better than average but not by much
Seasonal Operations (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 25 March 2018
I was only a reasonable employee so I did not get to see the usual non holiday hours, but from what I saw and comparing to my current job, bestbuy was much more strict. We would only get 30 minute breaks for an 8 hour shift and I constantly worked past what my shift was supposed to be. The best part of the job was the people I met.
Manager (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 25 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.

Customer Service Representative (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 March 2018
The people there are very nice , i got a long with most of my coworkers , because most of us are almost the same age ,late 20s . the job is very chill your just sitting down the whole day calling customers , but sometimes its boring and they try to make you mad but i don't really take it personal , and i just let them be , sometimes its very stressful because u just started your shifts and customers are trying to make you mad by insulting the products , the company , you and your family , while your just doing your job .
Consulting Agent (Former Employee) – Bellingham, WA – 22 March 2018
When you work for a chain store like Best Buy it's important to remember that the most important thing at the end of the day is the bottom line. Every aspect of your job will reflect this, from the pay to the way you're encouraged to handle customers and clients.
