    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Best Buy (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got called the next day to set up an interview. The first interview is with a supervisor, usually the supervisor of the department you are going to be in. A few hours after the interview they called me to set up a second interview, this time with the store manager. Both interviews weren't difficult just be yourself and work experience obviously helps as with any job you're applying for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy (Aurora, IL).

    Interview

    I received a call from the department supervisor to set me up for an interview. 1st interview was with a supervisor. The supervisor reads all the interview questions off a piece of paper. The same day after the 1st interview I received a call to get scheduled for the 2nd interview. The 2nd interview was with the store manager. It was similar to the 1st interview but also discussed hours and pay. I waited a week later for a group orientation.

    I applied online – interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    there's an online application, then a brief phone "interview" (barely an interview), then two in person interviews. the people were really nice. was told the wrong day but got interviewed anyway and advanced. the phone interview also establishes availability. the final interview is always with the general manager. there's a required drug test if you make it that far.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Best Buy in July 2015.

    Interview

    Did a quiz online, got a call the next day. They set up an interview and I came in. First met with the sales manager, who asked some difficult questions about sales. Then after successfully completing that interview, I had a final interview with the General Manager who basically asked the same questions but differently. Was offered the job at the end of the interview, just had to accept it officially via email.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy in July 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview was very rushed and to the point. The interviewer seemed to just wanted to get it over with. The first interview was a success with questions asking me what would I do in certain situations, not knowing information, and going out of my way for the customer. My second interview was a 1 on 1 with the Store Assistant Manager, it was very like the first interview with similar questions. Make sure to always ask a question when they ask you if you have any questions for them. Third interview was with the store GM. He was a little monotone, and didn't really seem interested on knowing me, or maybe it's his personality. The interview was very basic, questions ranging from why I want to work for best buy, and what would I do if I caught an employee stealing.
