Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Reno, NV

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Best Buy in April 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online, and got a call about a week later. They asked me if I was still interested in the job, and what my availability was. Scheduled an interview for a few days later, and the first interview was really quick, about 10 minutes. Afterwards he asked if I could come in the next day for another interview. I did and after a couple questions was offered the job on the spot.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult, what caught me off guard was the expectations of working with the company.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Wasn't really a negotiation...I said I'd be willing to work for 8.25/hr but he said they'll be starting me out at more.

Average Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Bismarck, ND

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in August 2010.

Interview Details – 3 interviews. Phone interview: asked for availability, can you work Black Friday/Days before & after Christmas (automatic NO if you said you couldn't). 2nd Interview with one of the store's supervisors, very basic interview questions. Last interview with the general manager about store expectations, goals, sales expectations, wage. Offered the job on the spot. Once you are hired you had a 4 hour long meeting with one of the supervisors where you sat and listened to them talk about Best Buy, its history, watch videos. Horrible. Then got a tour of the store and back rooms. Before you could do much you had to complete tons of online trainings and most didn't apply since I was a cashier but you had to do them anyway.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was how you have gone above and beyond for a customer at a past job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They offered $7.50 an hour which was more than I was being paid at my previous minimum wage job.

Very Easy Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Southfield, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Best Buy in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and recieved a phone call the next day. They asked if I could come in 3 hours from then. I came in and talked to one of the floor manager. They asked me questions about why I wanted to work there, where I work now, what I was expecting from the job. Why did I choose this perticular time to apply. He then said that I would meet with the GM the next day.

I talked to the GM, she really did not ask me interview questions. She just wanted to know more about me and she wanted to know what position did I truly want. We spent the next 20 minutes talking about video games and pay.

She offered me the job and said that I have to take a drug test and would start as soon as they recieved the results.

Interview Question – None of the questions were hard. I would say the hardest question would have to deal with my main job and not this one.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Easy
