    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Best Buy (Charlotte, NC) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Apply online first. I applied several times and it took nine months to actually get an interview, when they were about to start hiring for the holidays. (Others in my employee orientation class said they were called for an interview within a few weeks.)

    The first interview was with the manager from computers/mobile. The second was with the manager from home theater. (This was the position I was applying for.) The third and final was with the general manager. They finally told me that they had a position in the Mobile department if I wanted it. And after job hunting for several months, I took it.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected. Typical questions about theft, sales, getting along with co-workers.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiating; they gave me what I asked for, which makes me wonder if I should have asked for a little more.

    Cashier/Merchandiser Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Charlotte, NC) in March 2010.

    Interview

    My Best Buy interview experience was one of the best I've ever had. I applied online and took the (dreaded) personality test. 2 days later I received a call from a manager requesting that I come in for an interview. During the phone call he also asked me a few questions about why I wanted to work there and such. I arrived 20 minutes early for the in-person interview (a big plus for those of you getting ready for an interview) and I was interviewed about 10 minutes later. Three managers interviewed me together as a panel. All three were super friendly, and made the situation comfortable. They asked some of the typical questions (why do you want to work at Best Buy etc...) but there were also A LOT of situation questions. This wasn't a problem for me because I had prepared for those types of questions and would advise anyone else to do the same. Even if you haven't really had the experience they are asking about, create a hypothetical situation so they get an idea of what you would do. At the end they gave me some feedback, which was helpful- they said I made great eye contact, looked professional, spoke confidently, and they loved that I came early. I was also informed that they would meet with the GM of the store and a few other supervisors, and together they would decide if they would hire me or not. The panel that interviewed me seemed really enthusiastic, so I am hopeful that I will hear back from them.
