    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Best Buy in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a cashier position but was interviewed for a Computer Sales Associate. I was new to town and had only what was in my suitcase so I asked about dress code and was told as long as I didn't show up in jeans and a tank top I was good. I wasn't given names of my interviewer, but I called back and found out. Interview was not only quick, but it was lots of fun and he made me feel very relaxed. I was immediately told I would be interviewed by the GM two days later and this time I was given a name. Second interview also went well, but upon arriving the GM didn't even know he was supposed to interview me that day. Again, the interview was relaxed and fun. I was offered the job on the spot and given a date for paperwork and orientation.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work at Best Buy?   Answer Question
    • How extensive is your knowledge of computers and electronics?   Answer Question
    • Most of the questions were about where I was coming from. Having married a former BBY employee and being related to another I managed to steer the interview into a discussion of their policies and ethics and how they fit me.   Answer Question
    • I was asked to sell the GM an electronic or appliance of my choosing.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate hourly pay to compensate for semi-long commute. The negotiation process and contract signing were smooth, relaxed and actually quite fun and quick.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Mine was a two part interview. The first interview I talked with a manager this interview didn't see too formal seeing as how I bonded with the interviewer so I told them stories about past retail positions and explained how I was qualified for the job. The second interview is when you know you got the job because they only outline the company and send you out for a drug test.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Best Buy in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied and within three days they called me back to setup an interview.
    At the interview the asked a few questions, nothing too hard to answer for me personally, but for someone who isn't used to being interviewed/confident I can see it being nerve wrecking.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, basic information and one those retail assessments. Received a call a few days later asking when I could come in for an interview. It was with the hiring manager and he asked a couple questions like, tell me about a time you worked well on a team and what experience I had as a leader. Other than that just basic get to know you type conversation. I thought it went well, and the next day I got a call to come in for an interview with the general manager. I think if you make it this far you are pretty much already in, just make a good impression on the gm and he/she will offer you a position at the end of the second interview. We discussed previous work experience, what my opinions were on employee/customer theft, and what qualities I would like to see in a manager. He also asked about pay and I was offered 10.50, much more than I was expecting.

    Negotiation Details
    He asked me what I was paid at my last job, and what I expected to make at Best Buy. I was only making 8.00/hr before so I requested 8.50. He offered 10.50, explaining that the company likes to start high in hopes of keeping more employees for long term.

    Interview Details

    Had to apply online twice. No feedback whatsoever the first time and they hate it when you call the store and ask. A few months later I applied again (I knew someone who worked there) and they finally called me. This was way back in 2008, though.
