I applied online – interviewed at Best Buy.

Interview Details

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 Details

    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."

    interviewed at Best Buy in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied 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.

    Interview Details

    I applied and received an interview within the week. I arrived 15 mins prior, and ended up waiting 30 mins before the manager came out. She gave the worst handshake in my life. The questions were basic and it was not personal at all.
