    Best Buy Canada continuing to thrive through an eCommerce revolution

    Amidst Amazon's exploding eCommerce business, Best Buy Canada has continued to not only survive but also thrive. In recent years, the company has put a much heavier focus on its eCommerce platform and the digital experience it presents to its customers.

  • This week we celebrate National Volunteer Week. Here's Jerome Rodriguez, Manager, Learning and Development, on why he chooses to volunteer:

    “I volunteer to give back to the community and to make a difference in the lives of others. I gain new perspectives and gain new skills, knowledge and abilities and enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. Members of our local communities face challenge and adversity every day and are overwhelmed by social needs and life’s challenges. We are generous when we act unconditionally, without judgement, and without prejudice.”

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Buy (Quebec, QC) in June-2015.

    Interview

    vous fait rencontrer avec 3 gérants et vous fait marcher dans le centre commercial tout en faisant l'embauche pour tester vos capacité et vous déplacer dans une foule et rester concentré. (et cela vous rend plus honnête durent l'entretien)
