No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Best Buy Canada part-time (More than a year)

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 Management

Keep up the good work!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits - Med/Dent and of course employee discounts
    Enjoyable work environment - on-site cafeteria and gym facilities
    Many good people, great mix
    Company events

    Cons

    Limited movement upwards - most Directors/VP's have been with company 12+ years with no intentions of moving, bit of an 'old boys club' at this level and up.
    Being retail - constant promotions to prepare for, non-stop and tight deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Look at your senior leaders and the movement out of people that reported to them, is there a trend? Since many came from the old days of Future Shop they sometimes fall back on the old ways. Update and automate your inventory systems, should not be so labour intensive.
