    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Best Buy in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The first interview I had with Best Buy was incredibly professional. It was for a store opening and they had a system to process large numbers of people quickly. Still, I didn't feel like just a number. I was contacted over the phone and told exactly how the entire process would take place. They even told me acceptable attire for the face to face interview. This is good for the many teenagers that apply to Best Buy.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't trick me with anything crazy. They do ask many situational questions. Be prepared to give examples of your own experiences in response to questions. Lots of "Tell me about a time when..."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered more than the cap for the position so I did not negotiate.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview is simple questions about availability, job duties, what attracted you to Best Buy, past jobs. Basically everything you'd put on a resume. Then you'll have an interview with a manager and ask questions like, "what would you do if..." Or "tell me about a time when..." Regarding coworkers or upset customers. When did you go above and beyond.
    Lastly you have a final GM interview where you may or may not get your job offer, based on final opinion.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you did not get along with a co-worker, why, and what did you do to overcome that? Hard because you need to explain a negative but explain how you made it positive (hopefully)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation for me. But you could counter the offer. If they really wanted you they might be willing to increase pay a little.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Best Buy in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    First 'interview' is an online survey which is pass/fail. If you pass, typically the Back Office Lead will contact you within a few days to schedule a second interview with the Assistant Manager in your potential area - Sales or Operations (warehouse, front lanes, customer services, Geek Squad, inventory). They follow a pretty typical packet covering past experience and asking for specific examples of how you have handled certain situations with peers, customers, etc. If they recommend you for hire, your third and final interview will be with the store General Manager. They are more free to ask whatever open-ended questions they want. However, they will always ask a question regarding how you would hypothetically handle internal theft if you witnessed it first-hand.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Best Buy in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is ok you do go through 2-3 interviews to get hired. The onboarding process is what is time consuming as it can take 2-3 weeks to get hired due to opportunities in following up from the store leadership.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions are easy to answer as most of them are in regards to just customer service interactions and experience.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of interview. Usually they hire internally for this position. With my experience, it is already pre determined who they want, they just have to go through the formalities of the hiring process. The first interview is a structured. Questions are about problem solving, managing others, difficult situations, and what would you do differently.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't have any difficult questions. They didn't ask me to calculate or make any projections.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is a predetermined budget for the position. There is some negotiation but usually there is a little room.
