Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy.

Interview

Got a call and right after an interview several days after applied. Went in and waited for a while in the employee lounge room. HR and Geek Squad Manager were in the room. Basically, only the HR asked questions listed in a sheet of paper, taking notes about my answers. It does not like a conversation more like taking a test.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Best Buy in March 2015.

    Interview

    Did not get to interview with original person I was told I would meet. I had to wait 30 minutes for the GM to come in even though I was told the Geek Squad manager would be seeing me. Told me to wait a little bit more as he got a coffee down the street. After listening to me talk about my experience, he shut me down told me I was overqualified and that he would love me at the store in a different position. Told me to call in a few days and he would set me up. I called twice, once I was told to call back because he was busy. The second time I wasn't even on hold when he acted confused about ever interviewing me and then told the one who answered that he was too busy and would get back to me some other day. He never called, and I refused to hound this GM down.

    Interview

    It was short to the point, generic, and learned almost nothing about me, they didn't care, we both knew I already had the job because they were so desperate for cashiers and then gave me a different job

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Only one interview and that was in store by the Hiring Manager. I was very dissatisfied with the lack of consideration they had for my time due to the fact that I was told to wait for 2 hours for the HR Manager to return from "lunch break".

    Interview

    Applied online, within a couple weeks was contacted over the phone to come in and do an in person interview. The interview was pretty casual, nothing out of the ordinary. The manager I interviewed with was pretty cool and easy going.

    Interview

    Interview process in 3 phases, phone, geeksquad manager, store manager. Once you hit the 3rd phase you pretty much typically get the job and at point you're discussing wages. The questions were relatively easy to handle.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Plymouth Meeting, PA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Went for two interviews, was told the over the phone call was my first interview but honestly all they did was ask when I wanted to meet them in person. First interview the guy showed me around the place and asked me some situational questions, then told me that he would schedule me for the same time the next week, and that he would also consider me for other positions around the store considering they have more of a need for workers in other positions then they do for Geek Squad. At the Second Interview I ended up waiting for 30-40 minutes because there was a scheduling mishap, for some reason my interview was scheduled during an important meeting with one of the departments. Once the interview started it was more of the same thing but this time with the store's General Manager.
