    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Mount Laurel, NJ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Quick, Easy with a fast-paced response from management. I applied online through their application and personality test. I was then offered an in-store interview where I was interviewed by the manager of the department and then the general manager of the store. I was given my decision within 30 minutes of the two-part interview.
