    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    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.
