    It was only three steps with me. THe first interview was a phone interview that seemed more like a checklist of questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northbrook, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Northbrook, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    You meet with the lead agent/manager of the store, and from there they ask you some questions, but nothing really notating you knowledge. The manager I dealt with didn't seem too sharp on how to fix PC's nor do anything really technical.
