    Had an initial interview with a supervisor that entailed very basic interview questions and preferences regarding department. The second interview was with the general manager and was similar and almost less specific than the initial interview.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and one of my friends who works there referred me to the hiring manager as well. I got a call a week after I applied. I went in and the manager's computer was not working and that was unfortunate since the interview questions were on the computer. So, we casually talked and he asked me about my self and what I was expecting from the job and my technology background. After we were done he offered me the job.

    The questions are very easy and cliche'. "Tell me about a time you took lead in a project etc. Google the questions and they will appear. The easiest way to get hire is apply during the holidays and work diligently and they will keep you after the season is over

    Best Buy Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Interview was fairly simple. They do a quick phone interview and then proceed to have you come in for a 1:1 interview with the Assistant Manager. Just prepared to answer how you would deal with difficult situations, like with customers or co-workers. Or "when was a time you went beyond the call of duty for a customer"? If the Assistant Manager likes you they will set up a time with the General Manager of the store at a later date for a follow up interview. I had to cancel my second interview as I ended up taking another job. So unfortunately I cannot provide more information on that. Don't get nervous about the interview process, nothing crazy. I thought it was interesting that the phone interview they told me not to wear jeans for the first interview, isn't that obvious?

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by the hiring supervisor probably two weeks later. I had a short screening interview during that first call - was I still interested? What area of the store did I think I would best fit? A brief overview of the job, etc. I went in for a first in-person interview a day later with a supervisor. Basic STAR questions - tell me about a time when/tell me how you turned a negative experience into a positive, etc. - and then was called back in for a final interview with my department's manager. Very similar questions. Was offered the job during that interview, pending background/drug screen.

    Interview Questions
    • An unexpected question I'd never been asked during an interview - "How do you think a store should respond to employee theft?"   View Answer

    Computer Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the online application and attempted to talk to the hiring manager in-store as a follow up. She was busy, but called me back after a few hours. I came in to interview the next day, but was interviewed by a department manager instead of the hiring manager. The interview went well, but I did not hear back for several weeks until I was asked to come in for an interview with the general manager. I was offered the job on the spot, and the second interview quickly felt like a formality, as the manager spent more time training me than asking me questions. I was made to take a drug test, and started my training just days after a good result.

    Interview Questions
    • I was mostly asked questions about how I handled certain situations in previous jobs; When I had to overcome an obstacle with a team, when I had to sell something to a customer, etc. No questions were unusually hard in comparison to other retail jobs, and the interviewers seemed more interested in what my responses showed about my personality than my experiences.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was asked to name how much I wanted to earn, and when I low-balled because I desperately needed a job, I was offered more than I asked for.
