Inventory Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Diberville, MS
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Diberville, MS) in January 2016.

Interview

I applied online and received a call the following day. A face-to-face interview was scheduled for the next day. The interview was an easy one-on-one sit down with the warehouse manager, he was very straight forward and easy to talk to. The interviewer literally asked me questions verbatim from a stack of papers with Best Buy letterhead. This was clearly an interview process that has been pushed down from corporate. Each question was a "Tell me about a time when..." type of question. I was not caught off guard by a single question because of this website. Read the other reviews and prepare for the questions that other people have listed.

During the interview, we determined that my availability and the needs of Best Buy were not compatible so I was not hired. However, I appreciate Best Buy being upfront and not trying to force a round peg into a square hole with the scheduling. I thought it was a great interviewing experience.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online about two weeks ago. I received a call stating when an interview date was set. I arrived for the interview about 30 minutes early. I was directed to the customer service area to wait. I then had the interview one on one. The interviewer read some questions from several sheets of paper. I was fairly prepared but still got caught off guard with some of them. It didn't last too long, more like 15 minutes or so. It helps to prepare yourself. I'm currently waiting to hear back from them.

Easy questions tell me about yourself scenario questions. Then got called 2 weeks later for 3rd interview this was more random Some of the same questions to start then an odd one about favorite store (don't say best buy). All in all easy interview just be engaging and out going.

    Interview

    One phone interview for basics like availability. This is followed by a second interview with the department manager. If you pass this you get pushed to the third with the GM. Finally you need to pass a drug test.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    Very quick. simple questions but seemed like they already knew who they were going to hire. I applied for an inventory job but it seemed like it was a managing inventory position. I have read that they drug test the applicants they are going to hire. Once they did not ask, I knew I did not get the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Allen, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I initially applied online and was contacted within a week. I then had an interview with the Sales Manager and another interview with the GM. The first interview included scenario based questions and basic background. The second was a little more in depth about my background and a few more scenario questions.

    Negotiation

    The GM offered me a job and I had asked for $8.50/hr but the GM, seeing that I had prior sales experience, offered me $9/hr with the opportunity for advancement. I am now making $11/hr having worked here for only a year and a half.
