    Asset Protection Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    They asked me four questions and didn't seem genuinely interested. I felt like they just interviewed me because they had to interview so many people. I have experience and full availability yet I got brushed off.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (San Bernardino, CA).

    Interview

    The called back quickly and offered an interview within one week from applying. The interview wasn't lengthy and asked your typical retail scenario questions. The email relaying that there was a better fit for the position took approximately one week to deliver, but the website indicated I was no longer under consideration within a few days of the interview.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    It took 3 weeks to get in contact with the recruiter. I was able to use another recruiter that saw my resume from another party of the US to finally make contact.
    As a former employee that was excited to return to the company I was very discouraged by the current leadership.
    The interview did not offer any opportunity to showcase my ability to execute the job for which I was applying. This was a panel interview with 3 General Managers and an HR Manager. This was a 30 min interview that was highly superficial. The most in depth discussion only occurred after I began asking the questions.
    I was very respectful, but I felt like I was the trainer in the room teaching future managers how to interview using the company developed guide.
    This single interview has turned me away from the company that once gave me pride. I have removed Best Buy from my resume.

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Wayne, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Fort Wayne, IN).

    Interview

    Fairly easy, go through several managers as quickly as they have time to see you. It was different for me because the highest person I had to interview with was the same as when I worked for the company several years ago.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Mobile, AL).

    Interview

    Applied online and messed up and put the wrong phone number in my application. The HR guy emailed my friend and said that he tried to reach me twice Friday morning but I didn't answer because he called another number.

    Back Office Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    the process was very unprofessional the guy spent 2 weeks saying he was going to do phone interviews and asked all applicants to reply back to his email a good time to call them. I replied back with my time that would work best. waited til the time of phone call and nothing called and emailed the manager back and he said sorry its been busy so he rescheduled another one with me. Now the time around the second phone call came yet again no call. Sent another email to the manager asking what happened he said he got busy again and he will contact me soon. Two days pass get a email saying congrats we have decided to pass everyone to the next interview step based on your resumes, I noticed that everyone one from the last email he sent out was on this new email aswell. So finally had a face to face interview that manager started off saying listen i am not doing alot of these questions cause alot of them are pointless and asked his questions i answered them with the best of my sense the interview took 5 mins he said he was pressed with time and had to go. Basically do not waste your time with best buy its clear they do not know what they are looking for or how to search for it.

    Inventory Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Auburn Hills, MI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    After I was rejected for this interview, they called me back almost a month later. I felt as if this was a waste of time. The HR representative who contacted me did not tell me there was three interviews to get hired at Best Buy. I came 10 minutes early and the interview started late. Since I have a job as an auditor, and have worked in retail for many years in the past, I knew for sure I had this in the bag. But no, I'm not sure what they are looking for in a candidate that has experience with said job title. Probably will not attempt to apply here again.
