    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow, learn more and of course earn more as you move up.

    Cons

    There are times, projects, duties that will keep you in the office for more than 12 hours a day. It is very important to ensure a balance is kept in place between life and work, or you will get stuck working 11 hour days like many do at Best Buy Canada.

    Advice to Management

    To be in touch with people of all positions and not just other leadership positions.

    Pros

    Discount is #1 no question
    Friendly co-workers
    Interesting work environment
    Get to look through all the new releases and so forth, so you know when to save your money.

    Cons

    Deadlines and expections are INSANE!
    Bit too fast paced at times
    Hours are ridiculous, especially based on pay
    Answering more customer questions then the employees getting paid to do so
    Have ideas about making the warehousing more efficient, but afriad of bringing them up for fear of loosing my job

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the BS and be upfront with what you are, another Down to earth - Profit or Profit company.

    I was hired as a seasonal PP on wednesday, and Ive worked 3 consecutive early morning shifts already.
    The daily meetings sound more like monthly or quaterly earnings presentations then anything
    The way management pressures the employees to sell extras including service plans to customers, weither they need it or not is disgusting.
    Ive had to learn most of the ropes from an employee thats been there all of 2 or 3 weeks.

    Having been a loyal best buy customer, who normally went out of his way to shop there ... Not entirely sure I want to anymore, after being on the inside.
