Asset Protection Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy in September 2016.

Interview

It was fine. I was at their job fair, so my interview was actually on the spot/ Typically, you interview with the hiring manager first, but in my case I interviewed with both the manager and supervisor of my position. They were casual, laid back, but still professional. It was a quick process, two twenty minute interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Pensacola, FL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The first interview was with the department head during normal business hours. He described the job process and what was expected and asked about my education and professional experience, and about me as a person (figuring out what kind of personality I had). The second interview was with the store manager before the store opened. He wanted to know more about my background, and what I wanted out of the job. Overall, it was a very relaxed process. Both interviewers were polite and clear with their expectations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Iselin, NJ) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was not a long process by many standards, around 45 minutes. They ask very general questions, more to know about one's character than product knowledge. After that, the General Manager will ask more questions and then take you on a small tour, and after that offer the position, a easy interview, as long as you are of great character, it is very easy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for both asset protection and seasonal worker. The hiring manager called me in for the interview the following day. I interviewed with the manager for the asset protection position and went home. Got a call the next day from the hiring manager basically telling me that I was no longer being considered for the AP spot but for the seasonal position. I declined saying that I wanted to pursue the AP position and was given a thanks, but no thanks. Two days later Best Buy called me and said I had got an interview with the GM for the Asset Protection position. Had a short conversation with him and got hired on the spot. From getting hired to actual start date was about a week and a half.
