Interviewed at Best Buy
Interview Details – Went through 4 group interviews over 2 days, was not a hard interview, asked the typical interview questions such as "tell me about a time you...." and asked about our level of technology experience to match us with the correct department. they gave us a choice between the different departments. computers is definitely the hardest and where they push sales the hardest. the other departments such as media and home theater were much easier to get attachments to sales
Interview Question – I honestly cannot remember a specific question, overall the questions were fair and if you have any experience interviewing then you should be fine. just be eager and show that you are willing to learn from them and want to sell well. thats what they care about. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – asked me if 9 an hour was ok, and at the time i didnt know but that is very good for a first time hourly worker.

Interview Details – Applied online and took the lengthy personality test. Was called for an interview about 2 days later. Showed up 20 minutes early and had to end up waiting for an hour for the manager to finally show up at work. Simple questions asking about upselling and what you know about computers (they don't want you to know much). Was told I would hear back within the week if I was hired.

Interview Details –
I applied online, but didn't receive any call. So I decided to go talk to the manager. She gave me an 1:1 interview. After the interview they gave me a second interview. I think if you get a second interview and don't screw that up, you're guaranteed a job. The questions are pretty easy. On first interview the questions were: (1) Tell me about urself, (2) Why should we hire you? (3)Tell me about a time you had to deal with an angry customer, (4)Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond to help a customer.
For 2nd interview the questions were: (1) If you saw an employee stealing how'd you deal with that? (2) Describe your ideal work situation (3) Describe your ideal boss.
As long as you're confident and show an interest in the company you'll be hired.
Interview Question – Look at my review I have all the Qs there. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in June 2010.
Interview Details – I applied and they called me two weeks later. I had a little phone interview asking why I should be hired, and what position I wanted to work in. Then I had a one-on-one interview with Operations Manager (cashier), and he asked all the basic questions like what three words best described me, what were my weaknesses and strengths, and what would I do with an angry customer. The third interview was with the General Manager, and if you get this far you're basically hired. He asked more or less of the same questions, but he also asked about stealing. Always say that the person should be terminated no matter what. I had a background check and took a drug test. Just be very outgoing and prepare your answers beforehand.
