I have been working at Best Buy Canada

Pros

You'll meet and work with great people within your department.
It really is a team environment.

Cons

Management doesn't seem to know what they want.
One minute they'll ask you to meet certain criteria and the next minute they'll punish you for meeting the same criteria they just asked you to complete.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of hiring managers externally who go on power trips and don't understand the full rules of the store, why not try to train and promote internally?
A manager whose been properly trained and worked in the store from Day 1 will be more effective than somebody who has experience from a competing name brand.

    Good for students, or the discount. Avoid as a career.

    I worked at Best Buy Canada full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Leadership
    - Coaching
    - Training
    - Great People
    - Benefits
    - Employee Assistance program

    All in all the company has a great outlook and really look out for their greatest asset which are their staff, as long as you work hard and come to work with a positive outlook and follow the process in place to succeed you will LOVE this organization.

    Cons

    - Manager Plateau
    - Corporate Head Office is in BC

    The only down side of everything is that if anyone is ever qualified to move into a corporate role they would have to uproot their entire life and consider moving to BC. But, if that is the path one would choose then the possibilities are endless and the benefits become greater.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No Advice, they are bang on with everything. Great Leadership
