    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Glendale, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Worst place ever glad I didn't get this stupid job full og idiots. The application process requires you to take a test that can easily be cheated on and has no purpose whatsoever. Just have to put Strongly Agree or Strongly Disagree answers and thats it. Stupid Beaner that ended up interviewing me was a complete idiot was writing the whole time asking useless questions like a robot and told me to sell him a pen. That's it Really! Your going to give someone the job based on how good they sell a pen off of someone who knows everything about technology and has some sales experience No Wonder all the Sales people you meet at these stores are Dumb and know nothing about what they are selling. JUST DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND FIND THE BEST PRODUCT UNSELF THE PEOPLE THAT WORK IN PLACES LIKE BEST BUY AND OTHERS ARE COMPLETE IDIOTS, NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT THE GUY WHO IS INTERVIEWING PEOPLE SHOULD BE THE MANAGER THEY HAD ONE OF THE DUMB SALES ASSOCIATE INTERVIEW WTF!! FIND A HIGHER PAYING JOB ELSE WHERE PEOPLE BEST BUY SUCKS!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got called the next day to set up an interview. The first interview is with a supervisor, usually the supervisor of the department you are going to be in. A few hours after the interview they called me to set up a second interview, this time with the store manager. Both interviews weren't difficult just be yourself and work experience obviously helps as with any job you're applying for.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Harrisburg, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Two different interviews on two different days. 1 on 1 questions and explanations. It went well, but I felt like judging and "assumptions" were used to decide whether I was qualified as opposed to my impressive resume, which in my opinion is not fair.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Phila, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First they called me to schedule an interview with the sales manager. That interview was pretty brief than was asked if I could back in the next day to meet with the store manager. Interview with the store manger was pretty relaxed, felt like I was having a normal conversation. Got the job offer at the end of the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about three weeks later. Phone questions consisted solely of if I was still interested in the position and willing to work nights, weekends, and holidays. An interview was then set up for an available time. My first interview was with the assistant manager and supervisor for the department I applied to. The two both asked me questions that were very straight forward interview questions. They asked to pull from previous experiences with co workers and customers. I recieved a call the next day to set up an interview with the general manager. That interview had an emphasis on questions about stealing and stealing situations , also why I thought I was fit for the position as well as why I'd be an asset to the store and company. The job was offered at that interview as well as the pay, and I was told to take a drug test.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Peoria, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got contacted the next day. I was called in for an interview that Wednesday with the assistant manager. I arrived about 15 minutes early and he was busy. No big deal, so after about 10 minutes he introduced himself, and started walking me back to the backroom. The environment seemed really laid back on the way to the interview he congratulated one of the associates on a sale, and then he brought in one of the sales supervisors to the interview room. So it was me the assistant manager, sales associate, and me. I was very nervous not knowing what to expect, but the interview was very laid back and not too pressured. It was a quite an easy interview we would just talk about the latest technology, but every so often he'd spitball a real question at me like a time I dealt with an upset customer, but since I looked on this website before I already had all the answers to the questions besides one. The question was, "Tell us a time where you could not deliver" I was not able to answer the question, but it didn't bother them too much. After the interview I felt as if it went well and I got the job. They said that they're going to send the paper work to the GM and have him come in contact with me. The next day I had received a call for an interview with the GM and it was scheduled for the next week. I went in there he sat me down and asked me two normal interview questions (I can't really remember, but they were really simple) after that he said that was all the questions he had for me, and then asked if I had any questions. We talked about his previous job experience and overall it was just a good nice time. I got an email for my offer for $10 an hour for a computer sales associate. It was a pleasant expierence, and I hope it all works out good.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Durham, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was very simple and straightforward; It's very helpful to have prior experience in something related in the tech field to get a pay raise. The hiring process was also easy, they are almost always looking for people to bring something interesting to the mix, so it helps to be knowledgeable in something that can differentiate yourself.
