    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Decatur, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied and got a call back a week later. We set up a interview for a Tuesday. Interview was fairly easy with a really sweet supervisor. Got asked around 6 "describe a time when..." questions. Got a call a week later to set up an interview with the assistant manager. Shortly met with the AM on a Wednesday and was asked to another interview with the General Manager that Friday. After the interview with the GM I was asked how much I wanted to be paid and was offered the job upon successful completion of a background and drug test. Start date is a week from now.

    It went pretty quick no complaints. Don't just go in there and say I love electronics because that is not the answer they are looking for. Just be yourself and everything will go smoothly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Glendale, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Worst place ever glad I didn't get this stupid job full og idiots. The application process requires you to take a test that can easily be cheated on and has no purpose whatsoever. Just have to put Strongly Agree or Strongly Disagree answers and thats it. Stupid Beaner that ended up interviewing me was a complete idiot was writing the whole time asking useless questions like a robot and told me to sell him a pen. That's it Really! Your going to give someone the job based on how good they sell a pen off of someone who knows everything about technology and has some sales experience No Wonder all the Sales people you meet at these stores are Dumb and know nothing about what they are selling. JUST DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND FIND THE BEST PRODUCT UNSELF THE PEOPLE THAT WORK IN PLACES LIKE BEST BUY AND OTHERS ARE COMPLETE IDIOTS, NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT THE GUY WHO IS INTERVIEWING PEOPLE SHOULD BE THE MANAGER THEY HAD ONE OF THE DUMB SALES ASSOCIATE INTERVIEW WTF!! FIND A HIGHER PAYING JOB ELSE WHERE PEOPLE BEST BUY SUCKS!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was friendly. He took time to explain the job. However, he was in a rush. They do not give you feedback on you did on interview. You are sent just a pitiful rejection email. That may sound like a complain but I rather have feedback or criticism than a rejection email that is given to everyone.

    Inventory Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Newport News, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple. I applied online for the position and a few weeks later I received a phone call which consisted of a 30 min over the phone interview. At the end of the phone interview I was set up for an interview the following week with the department manager. After the in person interview I was told that I would be called back after they finished off their interviews later in the week. I received the call the following Saturday and was notified that the general manager felt that I would be a better fit as a geek squad employee (due to my degree and experience) so I was asked to re-apply for a geek squad position and that she would set me up with an interview with the geek squad manager. Overall, I had a decent interview experience for the inventory specialist position. The managers were friendly and professional. All questions that were asked during the in person interview were relevant to the position that I applied for.

    Interview

    Not a typical interview, they care more about personality rather than experience. Just focus on answering questions like, describe a time when you had to work with someone you didn't get along with. if you had to reach a amount of sales...
