Geek Squad, Deputy of Counter Intelligence (DCI) Interview

Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, LA
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy (Alexandria, LA) in January 2015.

Interview

I applied online and was called approx. 3 days later. The phone screen was quick and easy. The first interview was set for a couple of days later. I arrived 10 minutes early and only waited around 5 minutes before being greeted by the Store Manager who was conducting the interview. He explained that the process usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes depending on the length of my answers. Most of the questions he asked were based on previous experiences in customer service. Some questions were technology related but not specific in any way. He also wanted to know how I stay up-to-date with technology. I actually enjoyed the interview. It was very conversational but still relatively formal. At the end, I was able to ask some questions of mine own. He answered them thoroughly. Unfortunately for them, I did not get called in for a second interview because they “decided to head in a different direction.”

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Best Buy (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Casual. Schedule an appointment and go into the store. Sometimes the store is chaotic so your interview might be a few minutes early or late. Basic interview questions with twists added from the interviewer. 3 interviews needed in all to get the job. When you apply online to get started they have a personality test that you must take. It can take from 30 minutes to obey an hour depending on how comfortable you are with a computer.

    Interview

    In most cases to become DCI they would like at least 1 year experience at the Geek Squad. Hiring would start by getting on the Geek Squad. This can be a hard task due to head counts. Pay close attention to automated services and Virus removal. Best buy has a standard for which they like the process done. If you know shortcuts or avenues that you believe are better let them know but follow procedure. Once hired pay close attention to your DCI. Help lead the team as much as you can.
