I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in October 2013.
Interview Details – I filled out a questionaire online and then about 4 days later was called to set up an interview. Had interview with one of the assistant mangers and was asked to come back to have a meeting with the general manager. Was asked to take a drug test and once the results came in I had orientation. Took several online trainings and then shadowed some co workers on the sales floor. It was a great work environment, second home.
Interview Question – A situation where I had to set up and take leadership? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Best Buy in April 2013.
Interview Details – I went in before I applied and introduced myself to the manager of the computer department, which I now know is called PCHO. I asked if I could possibly get an interview with them sometime and they referred me to applying online, which I expected but I just wanted to get my self recognizable. I then applied online and called in the next day and asked if they had received my application. They told me that they were too busy to look for applications at the time so they told me to call back at a "non-peak" hour, which is usually 4-8pm weekdays. I called back at the recommended times and got the same response about 4 times. About a week later I got a call from the Home Theater manager asking if I was still interested and then proceeded with the "phone interview" which is basically a series of questions that determine wether or not I even am worth their time coming in for a real interview. I passed the phone interview and he told me to come in on a set date (3 days later). I then interviewed with the same manager that I spoke over the phone. Interview went well and asked many questions. Roughly regarding customer interactions. The main thing that they wanted me to say was that I should make the customer happy and provide them with the complete solution. Then the second, person-to-person, interview was with his direct manager. He asked me the exact same questions, same experience, then they passed me on to the general manager, mind you that each of the interviews were two days apart, he was nice and asked me the same kind of questions that the other two managers did only with more criticism. Apparently I impressed him and was offered the job right there at their base pay.

Interview Details –
I got a phone call on a Saturday, maybe about a week after I applied, which I thought was pretty great. I didn't realize it was supposed to be a phone interview, I just thought it was a lengthy conversation to set up my first interview! Clearly it went well because I was scheduled for Monday with an assistant manager. He seemed to really like me because he told me that he would pass this on to the general manager and I would hear from them within 48 hours. They didn't even wait that long to call me back, they called me as I was on my way home! The interview with the GM lasted about 10 minutes and she gave me an offer on the spot. Originally I had been interviewing for a customer service representative, but the GM decided to put me on the sales floor instead.
Overall, I enjoyed the interview process and it's made me excited to start this new job.
Negotiation Details – I may have been able to negotiate, but I really chose not to. I asked for $9 on my application, and they gave me $10, and either of those would have been a nice step up from $8.25 at my current job. They pay pretty competitively for a retail job.
Pros: Lots of innovation and valuable sales experience for entry level employees. Lots of challenges for young supervisors, providing plenty of opportunity for development. Great employee discount! – Full Review
