    Work while having fun

    Digital Imaging Specialist (Former Employee) Woodbridge, ON (Canada)

    ProsMost of the staff was nice and it was easy to get along with coworkers. The managers are all laid back and easy to approach. The job was easy if you put a little effort into learning about the products in your department.

    ConsThe only downside to working at Best Buy is only the supervisors and managers are allowed keys to the product cages. It becomes a problem when you can't find someone with a key and a customer's waiting for you to get an item for them.

    Great learning experience and fun

    Customer Services Representative II (Current Employee) Victoria, BC (Canada)

    Pros- Great learning experience and place to work, especially if you're just starting in the work force
    - Management teaches you on ways to improve customer service skills on a monthly basis when they schedule a monthly meeting to keep employees up-to-date. This gives employees a chance to practice and also learn about company values and also a chance to learn and demonstrate leadership as well
    - Employers will always work around your schedule to give you the working hours and days off needed, at least for me :) (you just need to be cooperative and give them a couple weeks notice, which I think is fine and appropriate)
    - Management is great. I made a complaint once and they fixed the problem immediately. In addition, they called me the next day to notify me about it and ask how I am feeling :)

    Cons- the only I can think of is the pay, it's not great but the learning experience working for Best Buy has been quite awesome. You will definitely learn a lot.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
