    Interview

    Typical Retail interviews, talk about team experience, describe problem solving skills and performance management. The process is very slow and drawn out. Expect to interview and still talk up to 3 weeks to get final job offer or final interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    Straight to the point. You will talk about your background and talk about their tech stack. If you want the gig downplay any tech stack that they aren't using. I took this interview mostly as practice so I didn't care either way. I let them know I was willing to work with Backbone but it wouldn't be something I'd pick in 2015. Nice folks.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly easy JS questions. Know what type coercion is and know prototypical inheritance. A couple CSS and HTML questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied online got a call a week later, had a mini interview on the phone they asked questions like why do you want to work at best buy and availability. Then got scheduled me for in person. Easy questions tell me about yourself scenario questions. Then got called 2 weeks later for 3rd interview this was more random Some of the same questions to start then an odd one about favorite store (don't say best buy). All in all easy interview just be engaging and out going.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took about 1-2 weeks for them to call me. Once in the interview there were 2 managers in the same room n they explained the process of the interviews that there would be 2 more and that it might take from 1 week on to see if i am even one of the candidates. To my surprise the 2 managers that interviewed me liked how well i did that they recommended me that same day to the GM os the store. And got hired right there on the spot
