    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Kingston, ON (Canada)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and recieved an automatic email telling me that if I received an email in the next week or so that I could come in for an interview. Instead they called me after a week and said to come in two days later. Went in, filled a form for references, time availability and such. That interview was today, they said if they call me in the next few days I will be coming in for a third interview but this fine with the assistant managers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Thunder Bay, ON (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    A personal and comfortable interview experience which was 1 on 1 in the manager's office. The questions were not too challenging which was good because when challenging questions are asked the interview gets awkward.

    Telephone Technician - Geek Squad Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on Tuesday evening, and got a call yesterday from someone in BC who left a voicemail asking me to call back or text when a good time to contact me again would be. I texted back that 11 AM would be good. I am in Atlantic Canada.

    11 AM came and went, so I texted and said that perhaps they were mistaken about time, and they responded that they were indeed. They then texted and said they would have another agent contact me in 15 minutes.

    An hour went by and I hadn't heard anything, so I texted that they may as well contact me at the original 11 AM (3 PM here). By 3:20 PM, I'd heard nothing, and decided to let it go to voicemail.

    The team lead and referral person I mentioned in the application agreed that, while they are busy, this is unacceptable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a phone call within 2 weeks. During that phone call, I had an interview with them. They asked me for a second interview but this time in person. The interview was horrible, the manager was 15 minutes late (they were renovating) then when we were about to start, she had something to do and came back to me 20 minutes later... We had a quick interview, but I was already pissed off so.🤷🏾‍♀️😂

    Interview

    Phone Call from HR asking a few general questions then followed up with one in person interview with the Supervisor and job offer right there if successful. From my understanding a few individuals were given verbal confirmation and HR followed it up with an email confirming the offer.

    Pricing Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada.

    Interview

    Phone interview was standard fare, same with in-person interview. Typical questions asked. The problem lied within the interviewer. E-mails are not returned, interviews start late, and the manager herself seemed too pre-occupied with her departments problems to really fully engage in the interview. Left with a feeling that the pricing department is far from the most professional one.
