    Computer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chula Vista, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Chula Vista, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It's different for every store but the questions are kinda similar mostly they want to know your experiences and how you would act in certain situations in a workplace, if you have a not interested or not energetic manager it can be a little tense and awkward, they only really care about three things, 1. Availability how much and when can you work. 2. your knowledge going in already. 3. For sales positions how confident and easy going you are cause your job is talking.

    Be confident know your stuff going in and tell them what they want to here, your GM is really who you want to impress since he makes all the decisions.
