30 Sep: Holiday Workers Find Careers In Best Buy Distribution Centers

Jiggy Oliva was seeking a place to work for a few months during the 2018 holiday season. He got a job at Best Buy and never left.

He started as a seasonal employee at our distribution center in Compton, California, where his brother, Cesar Cervantes, had started working during the previous holiday season. Jiggy landed a permanent part-time role the following January and is now talking about moving into a full-time role.

“I was just looking to make a little money on the side for the holidays,” he said.

04 Oct: Best Buy hiring thousands to help customers this holiday season

Omar Yusuf applied for a seasonal job in computers at Best Buy two years ago, never thinking it would turn into a career.

“When I started, it was around November, so I just got thrown into the frenzy,” Omar said. “I was in checkouts, and it felt like a rush. It’s really fun, actually.”

Now, Omar is a full-time expert of all things smart home at Best Buy’s store in Maplewood, Minnesota.

His story is fairly common at Best Buy. People come in for a part-time gig or to earn extra spending money, and they end up staying and building a career.
