I worked at Best Buy Canada part-time (more than an year)Pros
Huge variety of merchandise (especially online).
Great staff discounts (depends on brand).
South Vancouver is one of the cleanest, brightest locations.
Non commission for sales persons (reduces a LOT of pressure when talking to people).
As of January 2015, South Van's management team are great people, not just employers.
My manager did notice my strengths were not in sales, so I was moved to product process, and had very little discomfort with the work that was asked of me.Cons
I was very unhappy in a sales position (for personal reasons).
Sales reps must have a very broad knowledge of technology to feel comfortable answering customers, and even after months of work might feel blindsided by some questions.
You should expect to ask a lot of questions and teach yourself about processes if you want to do a better job, no hand-holding (not unique to this company, not a huge con)RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
