    I received a phone call within a week or so of applying to do a quick screening and then schedule an interview. My interview was about a half hour and had the obvious standard questions. I scheduled a second interview at the end of my first for a later date, which just ended up being the General Manager talking about pay and telling me when my first day would be.

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

    Interview Details

    The online personality test was the first step to getting an interview. After I took the test it took about 2 days for them to contact me with an in-store interview. The questions were basic and just making sure one could handle a high pressure environment. I was moved on to a third interview with the GM the same day. In this interview i was asked situational questions about how i would handle certain sales situations. Three days later i was offered the job.

    I got the call about the job because an old coworker worked at the store I interviewed at. The magnolia manager called me to come in and talk with him and the home theater manager. I came in, met the managers and went into office to talk. I spent an hour and a half talking with them. After that, they said they had some more interviews and had to discuss this with the GM. I wasn't gone 5 minutes before they asked me to come back to talk with the GM.
