    Interview Details

    Very informal, unprofessional interview. Seems to me the managers were very unprofessional and not serious at all. Seemed too young and distracted. Constantly checking their phones and not really caring for what I was saying. Almost as if they were just going through the motions.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I sat down with an assistant store manager for the initial interview. He started by confirming a few things on my resume and reading my cover letter. He asked about my experience in retail, resolving conflicts, experience working as a team, etc. he said he liked me but the store manager had the final say. I came back two days later to interview with the store manager. He asked pretty much the same questions, asked me about my sales experience and how I felt about being in a competitive environment. Lastly, he asked me what i thought a fair starting salary was. I had read that most people start at 10 so I asked for 11/hr given my years in retail. He accepted.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    HR calls you in for an interview and asks you questions about your resume. You get 2 interviews one with your department manager and then the GM on separate days. I think their main focus is your potential in the store and your personality during the interview. If you be yourself than you will have no problem in the interview or in the store.

    Interview Questions
    • They basically ask you questions of times in your life that can mimic instances that you might encounter in the store. I have a terrible memory so that was difficult for me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    After the meeting with the GM the HR called me later and offered me the job. I had to fill out a things online afterwards.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Seasonal time, they called me only a few days after submitting my application. I got to my interview early and waited a long time before they got to me. I only went through one interview which was relatively simple, basic interview questions. They asked me if I could go to a drug screening that same day and I went. I got the job soon after. The hardest interviews were actually the ones they did for advancement.
