    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Murrieta, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on-line for 3 different positions (Sales Assoc. - Computers and DI, Appliances and Magnolia ), called into store for interviews (2 - Computers and DI and Magnolia). In both instances the first thing I noticed is that there is no one on the floors older than late 20's. In both interviews I talked to a Manager who was around 30 (half my age). Asked the same old interview questions (describe a situation when you had to deal with an irate customer, etc.). In all 3 cases received rejection emails a few days later. I have many years experience in high-tech marketing, as well as recent retail experience. My advice to anyone seeking to work at Best Buy: If you are over 30, forget it. It appears that ageism is alive and well at Best Buy.
