    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Avon, IN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I showed up for the interview and the interview could not be reached. I stood around for a half hour waiting for him to show up. I found it horribly unprofessional for a person to blow off an interview like that. Finally the geek squad manager took pity on me and did the interview. The interview was easy. I was told I needed a second interview with the General Manager.
    Luckily I was given another job and had to cancel the second interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Buffalo, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Was pretty easy, fast, and painless process. I only did two interviews and was hired on the spot. Just had to do drug test after I accepted the offer.

    If you can BS and look good doing it then it's not hard to get a job here (or anywhere for that matter).
    Any bit of charm will pretty much get you the job. Most people 18-25 years old suck at selling so not much competition.

    I had both the sales manager and the department supervisor at the first interview. Then the second interview was with the Assistant store manager one-on-one.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions you would expect. ie

      "How would you overcome a customer's objections?"

      "What was one time you failed and how did you learn from it?"

    Negotiation

    If you're good at something don't ever do it for free.
