    Former Employee - Product Process Specialist in Vancouver, BC

    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)

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy Canada.

    Interview Details

    I saw the posting online and thus submitted my resume and cover letter. In a few days I was contacted for an interview at CHQ by HR. Some general questions were: Why would you want to work for Best Buy? How can you contribute to this company? etc... I received another call a few days later and a director interviewed me. He asked me some inventory and behavioral questions. The interview ended an hour later.
