Interview Details – I was very disappointed. I was called for an interview and the interviewer was running very late. Then there was no room available for the interview so we had to sit in the cafetaria of the headquarters. The interview went really well. However I got no call. I tried following up but no replies. NO professionalism WHATSOEVER!

Interview Details –
Open house call for Seasonal team via CL post
no specifics of qualifications really given possibly only high school diploma and some retail experience
interviewed done by a team on a first come first served basis
overheard one young interviewer telling an older candidate that the nature of that job did not favor women, i guess he was referring to merchandising
during interview manager really wanted to know "why best buy"
also asked about background knowledge of bb including its affiliation with future shop
went through resume
asked about weaknesses
manager did not divulge nature of job, duration or pay rate
upon more probing manager was insistent on the ENERGY in the place
little interview protocal or etiquette, definitely a screeening interview even though manager stated that it was a first and second interview combined
other questions: how do you deal with stress?

Interview Details – I first received a phone call from the HR representative. This phone call was a pre-screen interview. Afterward our conversation she deemed I would be a good candidate to come in for a 1 to 1 interview with one of the senior managers. I went into the corporate office one week later and had a very straightforward interview which lasted one hour. The questions were aimed at determining my competency and skill level. I got along well with the interviewer. I was asked to hand in a mini-project which would demonstrate my abilities. After submitting that assignment, I received another phone call to come in again to meet with the National Manager. That interview took place about a week later, but didn't seem to go as well. The interviewer suggested that I was not cut out for the position. So, I assumed that was the end of any opportunity. However, a couple of weeks later I received a voicemail from the HR representative telling me that they were still in the process of making a decision and that I was still in "the mix" and that she would let me know of the next steps as the process went on. It's been about a month since that voicemail and I haven't heard anything back.

Interview Details – The manger took me to the back room, asked me 10 questions, nothing too difficult. He wrote down the answers to my questions. It was a pretty laid back interview, it didn't feel like an interrogation or anything. I brought him a copy of my resume, and also he made me fill out an application.
