    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Best Buy in July 2015.

    Interview

    IMPORTANT: Call on a consistent basis after filling out you application. Because the majority of the time best buy will not call you first... The process consist of three interviews which took 3 days (1 phone 2 face to face). The phone interviewer asked me what days I'm available? And how did you hear about the position? The second interview is face to face and consist of 8 total questions. One of them was, "how did you go out your way to help someone?" The third interview is the shortest having a total of 3 questions. One of them is, "why should we hire you?" Always remember to just be yourself, they looking for someone with an out going personality and willing to work with team mates.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    After I applied I got a call back after a week for my first interview with the manager of the department I applied with. He asked me the general interview questions, "tell me a time when..." It went well and he told me I would hear from the GM in about five days to set up a second interview. Over five days had past and I assumed I didn't get the job then I got a call back for a second interview with the GM. He had nice vibes and really just wanted me to get to know him and him to know me. He also told me I wouldn't know if I got the job after our interview but at the end he went ahead and hired me. Now I'm just waiting for my drug test and then I'll begin training.

    Negotiation

    I got more than I wanted in negotiating pay. Best buy believes you work for what you're worth so they pay pretty decent to start out

    Interview

    Easy, 2 interviews, one with manager other with store manager. Basic questions, if you know about tech already it is a big bonus. Dress business causal, button up and slacks are fine. Absolutely do not wear sneakers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Selma, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call from the HR woman in charge of hiring about 2 weeks after I initially applied. We set up an interview for two days later. My first interview was with the sales manager. He asked me about my experience, and after discussing it he changed my application from the position I applied for up to a floor sales position. The interview went well, and at the end he said he and the others would discuss and call me back to set up a second interview with the store manager if they were interested. About 3 days later I got another call to set up a final interview, which took placed about 3 days after that. I went through the final interview with the store manager and she said they would decide later that day. I waited another few days and finally got the offer email. After some correspondence back and forth with HR, we set up their required drug test, and the date for orientation. All in all the process took about a month from when I applied to when I went to orientation.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't anything to hard or unexpected. Mostly just basic interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked what the starting wage was for the position, and what they would consider giving me with my experience. The told me the wage and asked what I thought was fair. I proposed 3 dollars an hour over the starting, and they agreed. So I would recommend bringing up experience when negotiating wages with them.
