Computer Specialist Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (New York, NY).

Interview

The interview process was very laid back, the managers seemed to be in a hurry to bring on new employees to help with the coming holiday demand. The store was also pretty new when they brought me on, so it was safe to assume that they wanted to get the team filled out, and ready to go asap.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Alabaster, AL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Went through a series of 3 interviews. The first time was on 3 separate days the second time was on 2 separate days, so I had 2 interviews back to back. They weren't anything hard or difficult about them. I just had to tell about myself, what I do, why interested in the posistion and answer i couple of questions about the department.

    Negotiation

    I had experience in the tech field and I worked their (at a different location) previously so I asked for a slightly higher pay than someone with no experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview, maybe about 15-20 minutes, very basic getting to know you questions. The next interview was actually a group interview, and in the end you had to sell yourself in front of everybody.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Was called probably about 3 days after applying. Had a brief phone interview - more about my background more than asking about the company or anything. Got to the interview early and was told to sit by geek squad until my interview was ready. Chatted with the geek squad techs for a bit. Was called back into the break room and was interviewed by the general manager and the assistant manager. They both were really down to earth and were joking around a lot, made the interview a lot more relaxed. They also kept asking me questions about things that had nothing to do with the interview, but just my opinions on little side track conversations that they were having - I'm sure it was testing how outgoing I am. Then they traded off asking me questions about certain scenarios and just about how I handed situations in past work experiences. They called me that night to tell me that they would have hired me if I had more time to work (I was just looking for a summer job). I think I got to skip the 2nd in person interview since the general manager was already sitting in on my interview. They offered to call a Best Buy near my University and tell them that I would be a good hire.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me a job near my university instead of my hometown for the summer. I only had time during the summer, so I declined.
