    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    It was a fun interview process. Management at my store used to be very laid back. We cut up a lot in my interview. Basic interview questions, why best buy? I was asked about my sales experience as well as customer service experience. tell us about a time you succeeded as part of a team. They had me role play a sale. I was asked about my interest in technology, how confident i was in my ability with electronics.

    Interview

    It was very laid back. I waited in a room until my interviewer came in. She introduced herself. Told me about her role. What I would be doing. She had me tell her about myself. Once I got to know her, I opened up. They are very relaxing and cool.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Best Buy (Kennesaw, GA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty horrible. The room was littered with trash and bugs. Made it very distracting while trying to swat away flies while a the manager is asking you interview questions. People kept popping in and out of the room. Low pay. I would advise only for people who are serious about working for Best Buy and need a job immediately. Otherwise it was very unprofessional interviewing process.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. Go through the typical online questions, if you pass those standardized questions you'll receive a call and have a face to face interview with pretty standard questions such as "Tell me about a situation when you had a difficult boss."

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a situation when you were unable to complete a project.   Answer Question

    Application

    interviewed at Best Buy (Buffalo, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Basic questions .. no difficult question were asked ..but it was a long process and they forgot to call me for orientation so I had to do orientation by myself. And we mainly talked about our kids. His newborn and my grandchild. But be sure to answer the questions as close as possible to the position that you're interviewing for.
