    Geek Squad, Consultation Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The process took 1 week.

    I applied online and was contacted within 3 business days about a face to face interview.

    When I arrived for the interview, I waited next to another applicant who had been waiting there for a while. The wait time was approximately 1 hour until I was even brought in the room for the interview.

    The interview was not very formal and the interviewer asked basic HR questions with 1 minimal technical question. I was notified that I would be called in a few days to set up a second interview with the GM.

    I was called the very next day to set up an interview for the following day, a Monday. I arrived at the interview on Monday promptly with another applicant waiting once again for their interview. After another hour of waiting a manager updated us and let us know that the GM would be unavailable for interviews today and we would need to reschedule. After one of the most unprofessional encounters I have experienced yet, I am not sure why I returned the next day for the interview.

    However, I did decide to return for the interview and I did not wait quite as long. The interview was quick and concise with no major questions being asked. I did confront pay expectations and I was low-balled to an extreme with no room for negotiation. He offered me 24 hours to think about it and get back to him and I decided I would continue seeking employment elsewhere.

    Be ready to be rushed through your training which isn't very good training. So you won't be ready to answer customers without chat to supervisors when you start taking calls. The one that trained me had 20 other people with a lot of system issues.
