    Merchandising Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Rego Park, NY
    Anonymous Employee in Rego Park, NY
    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Best Buy.

    Fairly general interview questions. Very friendly interviewers. It was a 2 interview process.

Both interviews seemed laid back, but still had the important questions.
