    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Best Buy in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview started out with a call to come in. When I went in I was interviewed by one of the assistant managers who asked me very simple questions like what should happen to someone who steals? etc. I answered everything correctly and within the next 5 minutes I interviewed with the main store manager who asked me the same questions. I was then offered the job on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Best Buy in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process itself was great. Everyone was friendly and very thorough. The hiring process was slightly worse. They took forever to call me back after submitting my profile during a "hiring immediately" time, and that was AFTER I called them 5 times to see if anyone had looked at my application.

    Interview Questions
    • No real difficult questions were asked. They were all really simple and to-the-point.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They accepted my initial negotiation for hourly pay, which was 9.00.
    If they offer you a job, don't bother. I've heard it's gotten worse since I left. Almost all of the people that were there when I was have since left.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went in for interview with manager of computers/mobile/etc., we literally sat there and talked about Big Tex being burned down, she told me I was good to go to the next interview, waited for an hour for the GM to get there, when he did it was another thirty minutes for him to actually interview me. When he did, he read from a script and filled in blanks with my answers.

    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.
