Computer Sales Specialist Interview

Application Details

interviewed at Best Buy in November 2014.

Interview Details

When I first got there, you have to ask the person who greets everyone that you're there for an interview. Then they call their supervisors and you wait til you get called. I had my first interview in a room in front of the checkout lanes. The first question I was asked was why I was interested in best buy. Then I was asked about my past work experiences dealing with people. What are my strengths, weaknesses. How do you work with a teammates etc. After my interview ended they called me later that day for a second interview which I had with the store manager. The second interview was almost the same as the first with the questions asked but I was asked about my prior work experience and asked to explain what I do. This interview took place in the home theatre section of the store. Basically once you get to this second interview you are basically offered the job. All is left if you are able to meet their hourly demands as I learned that you can't get a M-F 9-5 job and the work schedule is usually flexible and never fixed.

I was offered the job but they wanted me to work during Black Friday. I had already made previous arrangements for Black Friday and wasn't able to work on those days. Therefor I wasn't able to accept the job at the moment

    Interview Details

    Applied online got a phone call 4 days later asking was I still interested in the job and they set up the interview. The first interview went great asked me mostly past experience work related questions. I answered just about every question they had for me within like the first 3 questions. So every question was really repeated multiple times. The last interview was good really the same questions asked just make sure you tell them stealing is not tolerated and any employee caught should be terminated.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard process. You apply for a position online, then they call you up for an interview. Usually you go through two interviews. One with the manager, then another one with the GM. The interview questions weren't out of the ordinary. They mostly ask you hypothetical/experience questions such as "talk about a time when a customer acted rude. How did you react?". They don't really ask a whole lot of questions about your product knowledge. They might ask about your experience with technology, but they won't go into great detail.

    There is no negotiation over pay. You can certainly negotiate over the department you will work in, as long as there is an opening.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Best Buy in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Usually a 3-tier interviewing process. Typical questions include: Describe a time when.... , Tell me about yourself, What makes you qualified, What are your strengths and weaknesses... etc.

    First interview was with my immediate supervisor, then a manager, then the store's general manager. During the second interview the questions became repetitive and so did my answers, but I got a call for the third interview later that day, so my answers must have been adequate.

    I applied online – interviewed at Best Buy in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Basic questions about background and they simple why you want to work here. A couple other questions about customers and difficulties, they called me about an online application but when I arrived I found it to be a walk-in hiring day. Sales manager did interview answered questions but did not seem thrilled about hiring people. I was told I would hear in two days if they were interested. I hold a Master's Degree and a computer certificate, never heard anything.
