Best Buy launch recruitment drive, promise up to 70 megastores
Their recruitment website launched a little while ago, but today they've kicked into high gear; Best Buy are on the way and they want you, they want you, they want you as a new recruit. The US behemoths have today launched a recruitment drive to find the first of an expected 8,000 UK employees.
The first stores will open in Thurrock and Southampton in the spring of next year, each employing around 100 staff. Best Buy will also be recruiting for their new headquarters in West London and for this building site at Lakeside, which will become an überstore in the near future. They seem pretty serious about getting customer service right from the start - staff will be enrolled in a two month academy programme to learn about the products they're expected to sell.
Best Buy is hoping to open up 70 gigantostores in the UK over the next five years, with the aim of giving DSGi a sound kick up the arse. It can't come soon enough, says us.
