Loss Prevention Interview

Loss Prevention
Okemos, MI

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Best Buy in May 2010.

Interview Details – The first phase of the interviewing process was an online personality test. After scoring an acceptable score on the test, I was called in for a 1 on 1 interview. The interview consisted of basic question such as experiences with previous employers and questions about how you would act in particular on-the-job situations.

Interview Question – If you were told by an employee that they suspected another employee of stealing, how would you respond?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no room for negotiation. They offered you the current rate of pay and you either accepted it or would not work for the company.
