    Easy interview, they just want to see you know your stuff. Also you have to prove that you're committed to a full-time job. Come prepared with questions, samples of your work if you're a photographer or writer, or whatever. Be confident and excited for the job. Let them know you really want to come work for them, and show your personality.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at B & H Foto & Electronics (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Very long. I felt like the interview questions were really strange. Too many to list, but I felt uncomfortable. Too many personal questions unrelated to the job. Asked only a handful of technical questions. Questions were asked and repeated in a different wording. BRING YOUR RESUME!!!! It's been awhile since I went on an interview, but rarely has anyone asked me for a copy of my resume. This time they did and unfortunately it didn't seem to go over so well. After every question I answered I was asked to give an example. The worst experience I've ever had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at B & H Foto & Electronics (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I sent them a resume to their email I found on their website. I got a call a couple weeks later and they wanted me to come in for an interview. Once at the office I met the HR Rep and had about 45 minute interview. BRING A RESUME, its a big plus. At first the interview was pretty normal just the basic questions about life and such, then interviewer asked some person questions about who my suppose system is and such. After that he took me to the photo department head manager, where I met with him for a few minutes. He told me about the job and the type of people he likes to employee for the photo division. He didn't ask me much, it maybe lasted about 5 minutes. After that he sent me to the store and meet with the photo floor managers. I was with them for about 30 minutes or so talking about photo equipment and my past employers. I am a photographer so they knew I had a lot of real world experience. Once I was done there, they told me to head back home and that I should hear back from them soon. I got a call about a week and a half later, where they offered me the position. It was a really good starting salary with great benefits and lots of paid vacation. They take care of their employers

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at B & H Foto & Electronics (New York, NY).

    Interview

    B&H's corporate office is a block away from the store (440 9th ave). The occupy several floors but the main floor is the third floor. You can get and submit your application there. Once you've been called for an interview this is where you will go. I had to go back for two interviews because they needed me to meet with someone who wasn't available during my first interview. They called me a week later to offer me the position.

    Negotiation

    They offered me a starting salary and I foolishly took them up on what they offered (which I later found out was lower than it should have been).
