Seattle employee strives to be his ‘favorite self’ If there’s one thing guaranteed to get Jake Marcos out of bed in the morning, it’s working with people. Although the Seattle-based software engineer enjoys coding and his routine job tasks, collaboration is what truly drives him. “People make all the difference,” he said. Jake joined Best Buy in 2019 when he was hired as a contract worker. Last June, he transitioned to the Best Buy Ads team, where he writes and reviews code, designs systems and helps orient new team members. He’s an excellent communicator with a zest for collaboration— and does it all without speaking. At 2 years old, Jake was diagnosed with herpes meningoencephalitis, inflammation of the brain. It initially gave Jake the inability to speak and lingered on as a speech disorder, but it has had little impact on his Best Buy career. “His energy and positivity are infectious,” said Carlos Sola-Llonch, an engineering senior manager and Jake’s supervisor. “It’s a privilege to have Jake on the team.”

    The interview process took place for seasonal hiring where you attend a hiring event. A preliminary interview that is very straightforward and directed more toward your availability and previous experience is done. If you pass that round a second interview is given and more specific questions around products in the store that you would be comfortable helping customers purchase would then be asked. It seemed they are looking for at least some previous retail or customer service experience but I have heard it depends on the store from other employees.

    What products would you be most comfortable in talking about with customers?
