    Back Office Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Island City, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Island City, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Best Buy in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position and received a call less than a week after. I noticed with some retail interviews that the manager would have a guideline in front of them, including in this interview. The manager would ask a question and start writing my response in the Best buy Interview Guideline packet. I was asked about 3-4 questions. I thought it was pretty short. I wasn't asked anything related to the position. I was asked about a time when I put someone else's best interest in front of mine, another time when I went out of my way to help someone, and the precise question (see below). Besides some in between tidbits of conversation, it was done.

    Merchandising Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews, one with the merchandising specialist and then another day with the store leader.

    First interview is basic questions really easy, if they like you and your answers you will be pushed to the next round of interview.

    Second interview was the most nerve racking with a more stern face to talk to. He wasn't liking me as much as the the first guy. After the interview he said he'll call me to let me know, NOT ONE PHONE CALL. Talk about professional? That guy sucks.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Fairly general interview questions. Very friendly interviewers. It was a 2 interview process. The first one seemed more along the lines of informing you about the position to see if you still were interested. The second one had more questions along the lines of work ethics. Both interviews seemed laid back, but still had the important questions.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a position at a local best buy, I then received a phone call (first interview) a week and a half later. After the phone interview I was scheduled for an interview 2 days later. The interview process was easy, normal questions about how would you attend to a customer and about my work history and duties there. After that interview it took them about 2 weeks to get a call back to meet the GM. He asked questions about my job history, what type of manager do I see as an ideal manager, he offered me the job there and I waited for the offer on its bestbuy job site.
