    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Best Buy Canada in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews were required but I skipped the phone interview because I had a reference. The first one was with the supervisor, asked about my experience and about my personal interests. The second was with the general manager and he asked mostly morality/ethical questions. The interview with the GM basically means you're qualified and in, but must make sure you have integrity & that you're not crazy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy Canada in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Expect multiple interviews: one on the phone, one with your division manager, and a final one with the general manager.

    Questions asked were very typical of these interviews, such as adv/disadv, tell me about a time where _____ , etc.

    They ask you ethical questions such as you see your manager stealing, what would you do? Answer tell upper management no matter what!

    As long as you remain honest, personable and charismatic, you should get the job! Humour seemed to work in my favour too.

    The interview process was pretty straight forward. You had to do an online assessment to see if you are compatible with the company. Then you get called for an interview where you're asked similar situational based questions and some personality questions. Nothing too difficult. Lots of training, watching boring videos.

    • No difficult questions, all normal interview questions. Situational based questions are common   Answer Question
