    Quick, but I could tell the Hiring Manager wasn't interested in me as soon as I took a seat.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Clackamas, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very typical interview for a retail type job. Business casual for interview, leaning a little more towards business side. Very keen on personality and customer service skills more so than knowledge of technology. They will teach you everything you need to know about products, but handling customers is something you want to know going in.
