    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Best Buy in September 2014.

    Interview

    The initial step once your application is reviewed and accepted is a phone interview, usually consisting of basic questions concerning your motivation for wanting to work at best buy and your level of ambition. The next step is an interview with a supervisor/asst. manager, with several 'test' questions, i.e. "what would you do if you saw a fellow associate using their employee discount for a friend."
    The final step is an interview with the General Manager, which has more in-depth questions about your motivation for seeking employment: "What personal attributes do you have that would contribute to your work as an asset prevention associate?"
    Upon hiring, pay/hours are discussed, followed by drug testing, background checks, and possible credit check.
    Congrats! You're now a Best Buy Asset Prevention Associate.
