    First you apply online as initial screening, then hr phone interview, then in person with the store GM and maybe the local DM. Company is really needing talented sales managers right now so with any good sales management background you should be good to go

    Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Best Buy in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    During the interview process I first did a phone interview, then moved on to a second interview that was in person. I had to wait out in Best Buy's lobby for a good twenty minutes after the time the second interview was suppose to be begin while the hiring managers ran through my paperwork. Sadly, I waited longer than how long it took to actually do the interview. Throughout the interview, which was really just a set of standard questions in any interview, the store manager who conducted it seemed most often distracted. Overall I would say Best Buy's professionalism (at least at this store) was very lacking.
