Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Miami, FL) in June 2015.

!st step is getting a call from the manager arranging for an interview. Next, you have a Sit-Down with the manager and head of the specific division (home theater in my case). Relaxed scenario with basic interview questions. and they will call or e-mail you if you are or are not under consideration for the job. Whole process took about two to three weeks.

Questions were scenario based on how you would deal with angry customer or adversed situations.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Spartanburg, SC) in October 2012.

    Interview

    When I started at Best Buy the interview process was different than it is now. I interviewed with the store manager and a sales supervisor. After they asked all the questions they had and asked me to wait in the hub while they discussed whether or not to offer me a position. When I returned to the SDR they had a written offer for a position for me. I signed the paper and then they scheduled for me to go take a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked pretty basic questions. Such as, should someone who steals be given a second chance. They asked me to give examples of experiences with customer interactions and how I responded to the situation.   Answer Question
