    Pros

    - Leadership
    - Coaching
    - Training
    - Great People
    - Benefits
    - Employee Assistance program

    All in all the company has a great outlook and really look out for their greatest asset which are their staff, as long as you work hard and come to work with a positive outlook and follow the process in place to succeed you will LOVE this organization.

    Cons

    - Manager Plateau
    - Corporate Head Office is in BC

    The only down side of everything is that if anyone is ever qualified to move into a corporate role they would have to uproot their entire life and consider moving to BC. But, if that is the path one would choose then the possibilities are endless and the benefits become greater.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy Canada.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume online, got a call about 2 weeks later. They asked me a few questions for the phone interview, mainly why do you want to work here? What do you know about the company? Then scheduled me for an in person interview. Went to an in-person interview with the manager, he told me he'd pass me along to the GM. Went again for the GM interview, and got the job.
