    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Best Buy in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interview went well (So I thought). Easy questions to answer. Very smooth process. Went to follow up with a phone call manager hung up the phone 3 times. Finally my 4th try a few days later I got in touch with him. The reply after I followed up was "Yeah, we were overstaffed the whole time." I asked "So this process was pointless?" He said "yes" and hung up the phone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Traverse City, MI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, got called within a week. The lady asked if I could come in the next day. Once I got there I was told the position I originally applied for has been filled. She had recommended (with my skills with computers) to apply for Seasonal Sales Consultant on their kiosk. After I applied I waited about 30 minutes(they were interviewing others) she had taken me into a back room where the two managers where. He told me that BestBuy uses the same interview process across the board(every BestBuy asks the same questions from the same interview packet) After some questions he had asked me what I would like to be paid, I had told him I would like $10, he said no, we're going to give you no less than $11.

    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.
