Computer Sales Associate Interview

Computer Sales Associate
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Best Buy Canada in April 2010.

Interview Details – Submit resume, and you'll get a job. They will hire anyone with a pulse. Your biggest hurdle will just be the first online interview, which asks you some stupid questions like, "do you laugh at comedians who make fun of the audience." answer no to that one, cause the system will kick you out if you answer yes.

Interview Question – They were all standard questions, the toughest being LP related, but even then it was nothing. As long as you don't show up high or drunk, they'll give you a job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, and got screwed in the long run. Make sure you have a number going in, because they won't argue with you if it's reasonable.
