    Best Buy Mobile Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview... The person on the phone told me how great my experience and resume was, and that I should come talk to the head of the mobile department. Had an hour and a half in store interview with him. Then was asked to talk to the GM. Had an hour long interview with him. They kept ranting about high turnover in mobile. Well, pay me $___ and I'll stick around and do whatever you want me to do... I was told I was passed on for someone else. I'm sure it has something to do with my asking rate, but you get what you pay for. Now I see that the requisition is open for that job again, leading me to believe they didn't really hire anyone else. No counter-offer was made to me. I also did research and asked a few employees their salaries and I asked for the same without telling the manager I know how much his people are making. Well, looks like they want to hire someone for $9 or $10 an hour and then look for a new employee one month later when they quit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Buy in June 2018.

    Interview

    It was already off to a bad start due to the manager interviewing me being late by thirty minutes. I was interviewing with two people at the same time. The interview seemed to be going well since I was making them both laugh. In a bizarre end I was told I wasn't qualified for the position despite my years of managerial/sales experience. After the interview, I was told they already had someone else lined up for the position which is extremely disappointing. Unfortunately, I had wasted my time.
