Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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