I worked at Best Buy Canada part-time (more than a year)

Pros

staff discount, accommodating of schedule needs, had great co-workers

Cons

When I was bored out of my face, they wouldn't give me the opportunity to work in another department (I asked my manager and supervisor many times), despite proving myself to be an asset to the department I was working in. Did not feel that my hard work was recognized above those who were lazy and incompetent

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to reward those who work hard... not just those who complain incessantly

    Pros

    The management team does their best to work with you and provide a good working environment.

    Cons

    However, they do encourage volunteer overtime hours whenever possible. And the outdated backend that they ise makes your job almost unbearable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better work life balance.
