    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    Applied for this position, three days later got a phone call out the blue and they asked if I could give a phone interview right then and there. I briefly told them about my work experience before being asked to come in for an in person interview the following day. My original interview time was for 10:30am I traveled all the way out there and got a phone call at 9:45 am and was told my interview was pushed back until 1:30pm. I was a little upset because I was told on such short notice but agreed to come back at 1:30pm. Got there at 1:30pm and was told the person I was supposed to interview with wasn't going to be there until 3:00pm so I agreed to wait again but ended up interviewing with a new manager instead. I didn't get the job because I couldn't come in at 6:00am on a Sunday because I didn't have a car to get there.

    Interview

    I applied online and then a week later was called in for an in person interview. The interview was very laid back. He basically asked me questions such as why work at Best Buy and how did I hear about the position. He also informed me about the day-to-day job description.

    Interview

    Applied online, got called the next day to schedule an interview. Interviewer asked mainly about volunteer experience since I had no job experience. It seems as if they are only interested in people with job experience so good luck with no experience.

    Interview

    Went in the morning while they were doing interviews , and it was a basic questions from a list sort of thing. They wanted someone to work specific hours so that was maybe why they didn't move forward with hiring me. It was overall an easy interview , and not stressful at all. I would try to apply again.
