Interview

It was a 3 part interview process which was quite extensive for the job. It was, however, a new store hiring all new employees so it was understandable. There are 2 superiors evaluating each interview: one supervisor and one manager.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Buy (Dallas, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was awkward as hell. They didn't seem interested in hiring me at all even though I gave great answers to all the questions. If you care too much about your job no one will hire you.

    Interview

    Very basic interview, nothing crazy. Applied online and got a call within a couple days to come in for the interview. Killed the interview, just basic questions about myself. Very easy and laid back, very conversational. I actually knew the guy interviewing me, we played football against each other.
