Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Best Buy.

Interview Details

Seasonal time, they called me only a few days after submitting my application. I got to my interview early and waited a long time before they got to me. I only went through one interview which was relatively simple, basic interview questions. They asked me if I could go to a drug screening that same day and I went. I got the job soon after. The hardest interviews were actually the ones they did for advancement.

    Two interviews. Pretty easy if you understand electronics... Doesnt ask hard questions but they will ask about what you would do if you caught a friend stealing. Most of it is pretty self explanatory since its still a retail job.

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

    Interview Details

    The online personality test was the first step to getting an interview. After I took the test it took about 2 days for them to contact me with an in-store interview. The questions were basic and just making sure one could handle a high pressure environment. I was moved on to a third interview with the GM the same day. In this interview i was asked situational questions about how i would handle certain sales situations. Three days later i was offered the job.

    Interview went well just your basic everyday situational questions. Also was asked to sell the manager i was having the interview with, to sell him something like a pen. the reason they do this is to see what basic knowledge yo have within selling and customer service.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    The Best Buy I was interviewed for seemed unorganized as far as the hiring process. Applied online , got a call back about a month later . The call for the interview was kind of unorthodox , meaning I've never been called in for an interview in such a laid back way before . Anyway the interview was set and when I got there the process happened pretty fast. I went in, was asked a few questions and found out I was a "conflict of interest". What I mean I already had a job, and where I work they consider a competitor . I was thinking I could work both jobs part-time but since haven't been called back for my next interview I guess I wasn't considered.So i messed up I think telling them I worked somewhere else , but I had no other experience to use . So just a heads up if you thinking of "moonlighting" it's probably not a good idea to tell them right away .Or maybe it is I'm not really sure what going to happen next I'm still waiting to see how it turns out.

    Interview Questions
    • "Name a time you had to deal with a difficult co-worker(s) ?" Right off the bat I though of this one particular lady on my job whose mission is to make my already hard job harder. It really stumped me because I didn't want to say that and I wanted to explain it in the best way possible, but what I said in response I hope was right.   Answer Question
