Best Buy Canada

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe pay system is fair compared to other retailers and the benefits are good. You get a great staff discount as well.

ConsThere is no job security. They are constantly restructuring and eliminating positions. For the last few years they have reduced their management teams each year laying off hundreds of hardworking employees. They don't allocate enough labour to stores to cover the needs of the customers. Departments often run with one employee on duty at a time and customers are left waiting for help. Employees are stressed and customers are upset. They set their targets high and constantly coach employees to achieve these targets yet advertise to customers that they are no pressure sales. Staff are instructed to convince customers to get warranty and service.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould have a viewpoint system for rating district teams. JOS system should be more fair.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
