    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Apply online and if they review it you will typically get a phone call with an over the phone interview. Be on your toes, because they wont tell you until you pick up the phone. You will have an initial interview with two department managers, if that goes well they will set up an interview with the general manager. At the end of that interview they will either offer you a job if they are understaffed or call you back if they have a few good candidates.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Don't let them stiff your pay. I was hired at a much lower pay grade than other workers but didn't know until i started working. Asking other associates about pay is grounds to get fired, so you get stuck after the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Application with personality test, then phone interview with essentially the general managers right hand to make sure you fit the general qualifications as far as availability and desire to work for the company and to set up next interview, then in store interview with an assistant manager to make sure you're cut out for best buy and see which department you'd actually work best in should they have multiple positions open, then in store interview and role-play sales interaction with general manger. All fairly laid back. DO NOT WEAR JEANS! Look professional.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when you had to work with someone you did not like or get along with.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Not a lot needed to be negotiated, they pay fairly, and nothing is out of the realm of expectations.
