Very Easy Interview

Sales Support Interview

Sales Support
Lansing, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Best Buy.

Interview Details – Had to go through 3 interviews, very unnecessary for a simple sales job at a retail company. Other then that, just the basic process, "why do you want to work for us", what are you passions?, etc. Took a long time for someone to contact me. I guess the store holds the information on file until a spot comes available.

Interview Question – Most unexpected question was what do you know about this company? Now its a retail store yes, but they were interested to know if i knew anything from a corporate standpoint, stocks, marketshare, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they offered me a job at near minimum wage, and since i just got out of high school, well it was better then actual minimum wage.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Best Buy.

Interview Details – I applied online and it took about a month to get a call for an interview. The interview consisted of a one-on-one typical interview with strictly behavior questions. I guess I failed that interview because I was then referred to another supervisor for an additional interview w/ the same questions- all behavior. Then I had another meeting with the store manager that consisted of work related questions. Then I was offered the job on the spot.

Interview Question – Give an example of a time in your professional or educational life when a situation turned bad and what did you do to turn it around.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.
