After your first interview you will proceed to the 2nd interview where it is with a manager who pretty much ask the same questions. Then he will offer you a job and send you to get a drug test.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Typical questions to determine perssonality and problem solving skills. The environment was laid back and friendly, but not the most professionally setup. A lot of the questions felt repetitive. They want specific details from your own experiences. Take time before your interview to think about specific situations and employees that needed special attention.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    I went in originally for a mobile sales position. They told me I would probably be better off with geek squad. I talked with the leader of the geek squad for a good hour discussing the position. It wasn't an official interview. I came in a few days later for an interview with the geek squad manager. Everything went smoothly. I then went for another interview with the general manager. I told me he would call me in a few days and let me know if I got the job. I waited a good week or two and got an email saying I didn't get it.

    Apply online and interview with the Manager then final interview is with the GM. From the time the online recruiter called to the time that you are brought in for an interview was about a month. If you apply during the holidays, the time is shorter. You are temporary for holiday help and if they like you, they will find a way to keep you. Have answers ready for relationship building skills.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty simple. It consisted of a phone interview, then an in-store interview, follow by an interview with the GM of the store and one of the managers. All questions were basic cookie cutter, such as where do you see yourself in 5 years? what was your worst retail experience?, and how do you handle negative feedback?

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The 1st Interview consisted of a packet that ask questions regarding circumstances. For example: "Tell me a time when you went the mile for a customer or person"? Or "Tell me a situation where the customer had a problem, what was the outcome and what did you do"? I would say to make sure to write down or think of times before the interview when these situations might happen. Also think of reasons why working at Best Buy interests you. They will ask, "Tell me about yourself"? Make sure you express that you work GREAT with teams and give examples. Also when telling about yourself make sure you point out achievements in your life and a little personal. Do not seem like a boring person, but don't outdue yourself either.

    The 2nd interview will be with the General Manager or the store. This may seem scary but the two that I have worked with are very friendly. But it does not mean they aren't paying attention to you. This should be all about personality. They will ask you kind of the same questions as the 1st interview but with him/her.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of situational questions. Every seemed to be normal. Nothing out of the ordinary interview.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Able to negotiate position/title. If they feel you may not belong in that place they can move you. They don't negotiate salary nor starting out Part-time. They work mostly internally. Even mangers must work their way up from the bottom.
