    Telephone Technician - Geek Squad Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Halifax, NS (Canada)
    No Offer
    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.

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Watch out! These guys are gathering "design exercises" or "test tasks" - basically make you work for free. I spent a few days redesigning one of their pages and then half a day to present it to a group of 10 employees. I didn't get any follow up. However after about 2 months all my ideas went live on Best Buy website.

    User Interface Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burnaby, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First a phone call interview, then a take-home assignment and finally an in-person interview. The take home assignment is a bit ambiguous and you're meant to make up a lot of the suspected user problems. When in the interview keep in mind to say things like "I assumed this would be a problem which is why I came up with this solution". The in-person interview is a bit strange as the main interviewer is answering texts and reading their computer.

    Ecommerce Business Administrative(Contract) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email for scheduling a phone interview in about a week. There were time slot options between 8:30am and 4:00pm and I did it in the morning because I had work between 9am-5pm. It was the right next day I got the email for phone interview scheduling, so I didn't have enough time for preparation and I ended up not being selected for the in-person interview but it was good to have that experience for my other interviews.
