    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    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.

    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.

    Had a 20min phone interview with HR.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online for seasonal winter position. Received a call from Best Buy HQ the same day. Essentially had a phone interview during that call (basic questions, nothing out of the ordinary). After phone interview, HQ had asked if I was able to come into the store the next day for a one on one interview.

    The next day, I had met with a Sales Manager who pretty much asked me the same questions as the phone interview. Questions regarding electronic/ sales knowledge also. Sales manager said he liked me then asked if I could come back in an hour and meet with the GM.

    Came back an hour later, met with the GM and more personal/sales/scenario questions were asked. GM asks what department you are interested in and asks you questions regarding said department (What is 4K technology, Who is the leading television manufacture, Difference between OLED and SUHD?). Got hired on the spot and Started the next day.

    Since position was seasonal contractual, I was hired for 3 months and then hired on as a regular part-time afterwards. Work hard and stay committed, you will succeed.

    Before the interview, review the in-store flyer as well as any online promotions to ensure that you are at least somewhat informed and up to date for the interview.
