I worked at Best Buy Canada part-time (more than an year)Pros
The work environment can be laid back. Since you're not on commission, you're genuinely trying to help out your customers. They believe in growth from within. During the year I worked at Best Buy, a lot of my co workers were able to advance themselves to better positions and to even reach corporate positions.Cons
Management can sometimes push you to make extended warranty sales to help reach the store's monthly goal. Pretty typical for a position like this, but you have to deal with some unfriendly customers sometimes due to the fact you work in a tech store.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Best Buy Canada in October 2014.Interview Details
Applied on a weekend evening through the website. Got a call 3 days later at night (9 pm, abnormally late for a phone call). Asked numerous questions on the phone to weed out certain people (can you work boxing day? Whats your availability?)
Came in the next day for an in person interview with some figure head manager. Came early to fill out paperwork, but was allowed in for the interview almost 30 mins after scheduled time (clearly dont value you that much). Asked a bunch of situational questions regarding customer care. Not much room to see if they meet your needs as an employee, everything is about "what can you do for best buy?".
Also, they asked if I was interested in full time for part time on the phone, only to be told in the in-person interview that they don't offer full time positions. Probably something they should have mentioned during the initial phone call (as that would probably turn off a lot of people off who need the income).
Anyways, was offered the job on the spot, filled out paperwork and received my schedule for the coming weeks on the spot.
Tell them what they want to hear, come dressed professionally and you will probably get offered the job right then and there.Interview Questions
