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 part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Flexible schedule
    -Decent pay (for a retail job)
    -Good hours if you work hard
    -Fun people
    - A lot of the people that work there are young and there is a lot of activities to do outside of the work place

    Cons

    -Management cares more about adding extra service plans over anything else
    -A lot of times management will throw you under the bus to close a deal
    -Felt that too many times product would be discounted just to add service plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees.
