    Geek Squad, Agent (CIA) Interview

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was lacking compared to many other Best Buy competitors. However, Savannah's Best Buy is notorious for rude and uncaring management. They drag out the process, and just when you think you are getting somewhere...you get nothing. I will say, however, that I interviewed in Washington,DC and it was a much smoother process. I was interviewed on the phone first, then the SAME DAY the manager called me back and said that he wanted me to come in for an interview the NEXT DAY, and then, I was offered a position. Much more professional than Savannah's store.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in December 2007.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an offer online, was called and asked to come in for an interview. I was told to fill out a secondary application inside of another room. Interviewer finally showed up nearly a half hour after my scheduled time. She did not shake my hand or greet me, and made no eye contact whatsoever. She looked over my application, and asked questions about my employment history. She was very unfriendly about it. After a few minutes of that, she said they may call me in a week or so and had me leave. Very unnerving experience - interviewer made me feel like I was wasting her time before she had the chance to meet me. Did not ask about my qualifications. Her only questions were my history.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Fairly general interview questions. Very friendly interviewers. It was a 2 interview process. The first one seemed more along the lines of informing you about the position to see if you still were interested. The second one had more questions along the lines of work ethics. Both interviews seemed laid back, but still had the important questions.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Best Buy in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied at Best Buy's website and received a call from one of the hiring managers a few days later. I came in and spoke to another hiring manager and unfortunately the Geek Squad manager was not in, so I was basically told to wait. I'm still waiting so I don't know where this will go, but the actual interview was awesome. I had been interviewing with Apple prior to this and when I went to Best Buy I didn't feel like I was being constantly judged. It was a much more relaxed atmosphere. I actually felt like I was having a conversation instead of under interrogation.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a phonecall about ten days later where I was asked some quick questions. They called me back later that day to schedule an interview. Following that interview I was scheduled for another a few days later. I have not yet attended this interview. Staff is very friendly and nice and they just want to make sure you are a good fit for the company.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Someone in HR initially called to ask about availability and if I still wanted then position, scheduled an interview for 2 days later. The manager was really disinterested and had half a pen in his mouth the whole time. He seemed bored and it immediately turned me off wanting to work for Best Buy.
