    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Best Buy (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed from two different people on two different days. It was first a supervisor and then a general manager. I was brought to the backroom. The whole thing was painfully unorganized as supervisors would forget that they were "up" for the day. General managers would go missing and so forth. I literally was turned back one day because of a well-known absence and wasn't called ahead of time. Aside from that the interview itself was rather simple.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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.

    Applied online and got a call back in 2wks. Sales manager told me he was going to 2 interviews and it would take 30mins as long if the first interview panned out. He ended up doing a GM 3rd interview right then and there and I wound up being there for an hour and was offered a job on the spot. I was offered 9.00/hr which was more than originally told me because of my experience and for doing a good interview. I was also told about the opportunities there were for growth within the company.

    Negotiation

    He asked what salary I was expecting and since I wasn't sure what they paid I said between $8-$10 since I was getting $7.90 already but I was open. He told me they pay about $8.50-8.75. At the end of the interview he offered me $9.00/hr based on experience and a good interview.
