Inventory Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mobile, AL

Neutral Experience
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. Moral of the story: TRIPLE CHECK and make sure that everything on your application is correct

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Lawrenceville, GA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    First you get a call from hr person of the store you applied at for a phone interview. They ask about availability and prior work experience. If that goes well they will schedule a 1 on 1 with the department manager. They ask plenty of situational questions. This lasted for about 30-40 minutes. They try to see if your prior experience closely relates to the job duties. Next will be an interview with the GM which was laid back in my case. He essentially is trying to get to know you as a person and see if you would be a good fit in his store.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (San Angelo, TX).

    Interview

    Went in prepared and dressed as if I was interviewing for a management position. The interviewer seemed impressed and I knew before saying goodbye that I had the job. He asked a few personality questions, which seems prescribed by Best Buy Human Resources, but overall, the interview was simple and painless.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Goleta, CA).

    Interview

    There are two interviews, the second one is the one with the general store manager and you get hired on the spot. You take a drug test, and get a background check. The process took longer than it should have.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Carson City, NV) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I saw the ad through www.indeed.com and saw a job opportunity as an Inventory Specialist. I ended up going to Best Buy's website through the "Career" link and that's where I applied online. Three days later, I get a phone call interview which included a background screening, my availability days, how many hours am I willing to work, and how much do I approximately want to get paid every hour. She also informed me that they're willing to give me an interview the following day and gave me options to pick the time of day.

    My interview was set at 2pm but I came in 15 minutes early which the interviewer really appreciated. And because of that, she was able to interview me 5 minutes before 2pm. This was my first interview ever and it was surprisingly fairly short in my opinion. The interview only took about 10 minutes. It was a one-on-one interview. After she went through all the questions, she informed me that she had already interviewed a bunch of people prior to myself and it would take roughly 48 hours to review through all of them.

    After those 48 hours, if they were still interested in me, I would receive a phone call to have another interview with the GM. However, if they weren't interested, I would get a courtesy email that I didn't get the job and would rather choose a different candidate. I was hopeful and waited those 2 days. I was also attentive at checking my emails. Needless to say, it's been about a week and I still haven't gotten any type of response from the company.
