Merchandise Analyst Interview

Merchandise Analyst
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I applied online and interviewed at Best Buy Canada.

Interview Details – It was pretty standard, there was a short phone interview after which they asked me to come in for a face to face interview. I initially interviewed with a Senior Merchandise Manager who asked me what I would call pretty standard interview questions, a second interview followed that one with a Director of Merchandising which again was mostly standard questions but also felt more like a conversation versus reading off a sheet of questions.

Interview Question – How has technology changed my life   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate as this was an entry position which I had little to now experience for

Merchandise Analyst Interview

Merchandise Analyst
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy Canada in May 2014.

Interview Details – Application process was quick. I was contact by Best Buy HR had a brief conversation regarding the role. Following I met with a director. Interviewer was friendly and transparent with the job role. Explained to me the career path and the possible routes. Ultimately the position did not meet my salary expectations.

Interview Question – Questions were straight forward no real surprises.
- Tell me about yourself
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years
- What can you tell me about your experience...
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – salary was too low.
I likely would have pursued the position otherwise.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Best Buy Canada.

Interview Details – Telephone Interview:

Basic questions regarding your resume and background. They really want to know your interests here to potentially stage you in a specific department.

Managerial Interview:

Basic questions regarding resume and background again, but brief summary this time. Asks a lot of questions regarding team behaviour. (e.g, How to handle a difficult teammate / customer). Aside from that, they really want to make sure you are a team player and empathetic to customers.

Interview Question – How would you sell me this pen? (The pen the manager was using).   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It really depends on experience, but you can definitely get past minimum wage. Most people I knew got past minimum wage.
