    It was a very short interview in which I was asked about different sales scenarios and customer service situations. It was very brief and easy, I do not think anyone would have an issue with this interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Sandy, UT) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Three interviews and a drug test. Each interview was with someone higher up in the company than the previous interviewer. The final was with the store manager, which was the most difficult of the three. He asked the most difficult questions. He did, however, seem very interested in me. All interviews were done one-on-one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Sherman, TX) in November 2011.

    Interview

    You apply online, wait for them to call you, it is then a phone screening to make sure you at least sound sane, interview with your first superior, then GM. Sometimes they combine the superior and GM interview

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to work with someone you did not like? What did you learn from it? Tell me about a time where you coached someone? How important are small details in your job? Why Best Buy? How do you feel about stealing?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    When I was first hired, it was no negotiation. If you are applying internally, you might be able to negotiate or possibly if you have some good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (The Woodlands, TX) in August 2010.

    Interview

    1st interview: Random phone call from Best Buy. Remember which one you applied to, so if they call, you can be prepared. 2nd: a one-on-one interview with 1 of 4 Store Managers. They are all extremely easy to get along with, so don't worry about that part. Asked about 5 -8 questions. and remember, WHEN asked "what would you do if you saw an employee steal" You would fire him, no questions asked. Stealing is stealing and I've learned how huge employee theft can hurt a business. If you answer otherwise, immediately flagged and 100% guaranteed you will not get the job. 3: Interview with the General Manager: basically, if you get past the 2nd interview, you're in. Making it this far means the General Manager is making sure his Store Managers made a good choice. At this point, pay is negotiated and asked what department I wanted to work in. As long as you can pass your background and drug test.
