    Three interviews pretty basic and friendly people overall. Asked about why I wanted to work there and about my previous skills. Also asked what kind of animal I would be if I got to choose..which was pretty random. But it was fun and kept very simple !

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Best Buy (Dallas, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Took about 2-3 weeks overall. Applied for position online, was initially contacted about 1 week after applying to set up phone interview with recruiter. after phone interview, set up panel interview within 2 days. Decision was made within a day or so after panel interview and unlike most employers, I was contacted to let me know they went with internal candidate.

    Phone interview with recruiter was simple. Wanted to know about past experience, why was I looking to leave current company, and a couple of basic situational questions. My app was pass along to general manager who wanted to set up panel interview pretty quick I suppose. I interviewed with recruiter on a Thursday, I was contacted on a Saturday to proceed with store interview for that following Wed.

    The panel interview consisted of 4 General Manager from different stores throughout the market/district. I was asked a few questions about my work history and why I was looking to leave current role in which I went into much detail so it gave enough to jump right into the actual interview. All had situational questions they took turns asking. This was a very laid back interview. Considering I have 13 years worth of sales/retail experience and just as much leadership, the questions were simple as they related to my most current role and I enjoy what I do and the results I've had working with different teams in the business. After about 10 questions, I had the floor in which I asked very detailed questions about structure and company direction because of my genuine interest with company. I've followed them the last 12 years I've been in retail.

    Overall, it was great. I am normally very energetic and pretty much an open book which is what the role calls for however, as with any other company, they always seek to promote one of their own first. I understand the importance of employee loyalty .I was contacted directly by the GM who informed me that the panel was impressed with my interview and resume and that he would hold on to my resume and contact me with an opening in the market however, they went with an internal who I am sure has been working their butt off to get that position so I could not even be upset. I was more relieved knowing that this team takes care of its associates and made me even more excited about a possible future opportunity. You don't always get this type of courtesy and support from retail employers and its nice to see its still out there.

    I was contacted within 2-3 days after interview with decision.
