    Interview Details

    It will take them one to four weeks to get back to you once applied. They will call you first and then you will go an interview with a supervisor first and then the General Manager last. Interviews can be weeks apart which is kind of annoying.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Best Buy in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    After they called me to ask if I was interested in the position in their San Bruno CA location. After a brief discussion, they said they would call me back in a couple of days to set up a time and date for an interview. They called me back a few hours later and the next day and left no message. I called them back and asked if they wanted to talk. Again, they said they would call me back. I would leave a message with someone in HR and they would pass it on to the other HR person. Complete disorganization. A few days later I get an eMail saying "We enjoyed speaking with you about the position... We're moving with another candidate..." Huh?

    Rudest HR call I've ever encountered.

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online and two days later HR called and ask if I was still interested in the position. I said yes and a brief interview was conducted over the phone with questions such as "If I see an employee stealing what would I do", then I was asked my availability. Three business days later I was schedule to have an interview with the supervisor at 4pm.

    I got there at 3:40 and was interview an hour later. He asked the basic question such as "Tell me a time you went above and beyond for a customer" "What did you like and what didn't you like about your previous job" "Why do you want to work at Best Buy". After the interview the supervisor said that the general manager would like to interview me.

    Ten minutes later I had an interview with the GM and he asked me only one question "Why Best Buy?". I told him my previous retail job did not have room for growth and I believe working at BB would give me the opportunity to grow and expand within the company while providing excellent customer service. He asked if I had any questions so i asked "what is the work culture/environment and what is a typical day like" " I also asked what is his expectations of his employees like". I asked the basic question because employers like it when you asked questions.

    Few minuted later, he told me congratulation and welcome to the team. I asked what to expect from here on. He said expect an email from HR to accept the job then a list of location to do a drug test and then report for orientation.

    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.
