    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Apple Valley, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed at a job fair. This was an all day event. There were three interviews. The first interview was a group interview with about 10 of us around a table one by one answering the same basic questions. The second interview was a one on one interview with one of the department managers. It was very relaxed but straight to the point. The last interview was with the general manager. At this point, it was pretty clear that I had the job. Most of the questions were based around either working as a team, offering credit card services or customer service.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of a time when you went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service and how did the customer respond.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wasn't given a dollar amount until after I had already accepted. It was during the processing.

    It took me three interviews, and about a week after my last interview for them to inform their mutual interest in me. I had to drive to the store three different times. The first interview was with a Supervisor. My second one was with a Manager, and the last one was with the store manager. They all asked pretty much the same questions in a different way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Raleigh, NC) in October 2012.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview with the Back Office Lead. They ask you a few questions just to get to know you and to ask why you applied for the position. If that went well then they move you on to the next phase which is a face to face interview with Assistant Manager. This is usually the manager that you will work under. If they like what you had to say then you get to have a face to face interview with General Manager of the store you are applying for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Eagan, MN) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call from the Back Office Lead man who scheduled for an interview. We played phone tag for a while but eventually things worked out. I went in for my interview and they made me wait about 10-15 mins (which after being hired, I noticed they did that to everyone). The first interview is with a department manager and if they call you back again after that you have a second interview with the store manager who will tell you that you're hired (most of the time). After that you have to submit a drug test and then usually call you in to fill out some paper work and give you your schedule.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any questions that I wasn't prepared to answer. They were typical interview questions such as Why do you want to work here? How do you make the customer's shopping experience the best they've had? Questions like that. I went to google.com and researched interview questions and their answers in order to prepare myself.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't really negotiate, I just accepted what they offered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Norridge, IL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy 2 week process. After filling out an application, I received a phone call--the absolute first and most important interview to get yourself through the door! There were 3 additional in-person interviews that I had to sweat through, but once you're opted in to the 3rd interview, you've got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What is it about Best Buy that compelled you to want to work here?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Always know your worth, don't let them measure it for you.
    It was my first job so I couldn't really negotiate. But on promotions and raises, I showed them my worth and was appropriately compensated for it.
