    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went through a series of 3 interviews. The first time was on 3 separate days the second time was on 2 separate days, so I had 2 interviews back to back. They weren't anything hard or difficult about them. I just had to tell about myself, what I do, why interested in the posistion and answer i couple of questions about the department.

    Negotiation Details
    I had experience in the tech field and I worked their (at a different location) previously so I asked for a slightly higher pay than someone with no experience.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a phone interview, maybe about 15-20 minutes, very basic getting to know you questions. The next interview was actually a group interview, and in the end you had to sell yourself in front of everybody.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Was called probably about 3 days after applying. Had a brief phone interview - more about my background more than asking about the company or anything. Got to the interview early and was told to sit by geek squad until my interview was ready. Chatted with the geek squad techs for a bit. Was called back into the break room and was interviewed by the general manager and the assistant manager. They both were really down to earth and were joking around a lot, made the interview a lot more relaxed. They also kept asking me questions about things that had nothing to do with the interview, but just my opinions on little side track conversations that they were having - I'm sure it was testing how outgoing I am. Then they traded off asking me questions about certain scenarios and just about how I handed situations in past work experiences. They called me that night to tell me that they would have hired me if I had more time to work (I was just looking for a summer job). I think I got to skip the 2nd in person interview since the general manager was already sitting in on my interview. They offered to call a Best Buy near my University and tell them that I would be a good hire.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me a job near my university instead of my hometown for the summer. I only had time during the summer, so I declined.

    Hiring process was long but easy. Required a drug test which took about a month for official confirmation. Took 3 interviews and on the last interview you speak with the general manager of the store. The last interview is when you find out how much the general manager is willing to pay you.
