Customer Service Representative Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Best Buy in August 2014.

Interview Details

Overall I had a very negative experience. Was left waiting for 30 minutes despite arriving on time while they interviewed someone else. They then got my name wrong. Great start. The interview actually went very well, the same questions you see on here where asked and I got along great with the interviewer. Afterwards I was told I would be called to set up a final interview within the next few days. I let a week pass and heard nothing so I called up and was told they were still conducting interviews for the position. Another week passes, I call, still doing interviews. In the end they strung me along for an entire month before sneakily rejecting me through the job portal website, which you don't even receive a notification for.

Honestly, I'm pretty used to receiving nothing from companies, but the fact that I was told for sure that I would be called for a final interview before never hearing from them again makes me incredibly angry and disappointed.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked a technical question which was odd as I was only applying for a customer service position, but I have some knowledge of computers so I was able to answer.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Depends who you interview with. They hiring manager has a sheet of paper and reads off all the questions to you. If you have very good customer service experience they will hire you. I was lucky and they just hired me during my interview and paid me more then what the other employees were making. It will just depend on who you interview with

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    I applied and got a call back about 3 days later. The HR lead gave me a phone interview and asked me what positions I was interested in, how soon I could work, and why I wanted to work at Best Buy. Then she set up a second interview with a manager who asked the typical tell me about a time questions. I thought I messed up in some of them but he said the interview went well and he wanted to give me an interview with the general manager. The general manager asked similar questions and said they would let me know on Monday ( My interview was Friday) if I got the job. However, I got a call back only two hours after the interview telling me I got the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Best Buy in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty much like everyone else said, except I never got a phone interview, just the Manager and General Manager.

    For the manager interview he was training another lady on how to interview so I was kind of the guinea pig. They both asked alot of the usual questions about previous work experience and some roleplaying questions.

    The General Manager interview was more focused on what I'd be doing at customer service.

    Interview Questions
    • The roleplaying of what I would do if someone tried to return a computer was weird.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I asked for $9.50 an hour and he asked if I thought I was worth that, and I said yes. He then proceeded to tell me that he'd be paying me more than that, at $11.50 an hour. Which was insane and of course I accepted.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    it is an online application. Each application is sent to the store directly via email. If they like your resume/application enough, you will receive a phone call for screening (terribly easy to pass) in which you will be offered an interview. At this particular best buy, the first interview is done by the Supervisor and Manager of the preferred department. If you pass their interview, you will be called in for a final interview with the GM himself, as he likes to make sure each of his employees are up to the Best Buy standard.

    Interview Questions
    • There were not difficult questions, although a few of them revealed a lot more about myself than I cared to give.   Answer Question
