    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Kinda awesome how it went, at first I applied for the home theater position & got called and did an over the phone interview, then I got called for a second interview with one of the managers a week later; after calling them during the week they mentioned they found someone else for the position but suggested that there was an open position for a seasonal customer service specialist and so they told me to come in for a third interview instead of the position I initially applied for I was going to be having a third interview for a cashier position so I went in for the third & and an hour later I got called that I got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Too many interviews to actually get the job...I went through 4 and it took 5 months before they actually decided to hire me. Early on, one of the people who interviewed me was a new hire who had only been there 2 days. Seriously? You put a newbie out there to interview folks expecting that this person is going to know if the candidate is a good fit for your company, culture and specific job?

    Interview Questions
    • I had all sorts of unexpected questions. Early on they were asking me questions about a position that I hadn't even applied for. I had to ask them why they brought me in if I didn't apply for this job and didn't have anything on my resume, no key words, no experience even related to it. I'll leave it at that.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by the hiring supervisor probably two weeks later. I had a short screening interview during that first call - was I still interested? What area of the store did I think I would best fit? A brief overview of the job, etc. I went in for a first in-person interview a day later with a supervisor. Basic STAR questions - tell me about a time when/tell me how you turned a negative experience into a positive, etc. - and then was called back in for a final interview with my department's manager. Very similar questions. Was offered the job during that interview, pending background/drug screen.

    Interview Questions
    • An unexpected question I'd never been asked during an interview - "How do you think a store should respond to employee theft?"   View Answer

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    The manager was very professional, clean, neat and polite. He used excellent grammar during the interview process. I was asked about myself and then the usual interview questions. At no time during the interview did I feel uncomfortable, after it was over he advised me that I would receive a phone call whether I was hired or not. I was called the very next day and accepted the position.

    Interview Details

    Just the first step of phone interview, information collection. The HR consultant was quite friendly but she insisted to know my expectation of salary which I have to at least give her a range. Other than that, the interview was quite smooth and normal. She said she would discuss with hire manager about the next step actions and I'm still waiting...

    Interview Details

    Interviewed via phone (jobs were several hours away from home location) with District staff and General Manager. Very straightforward questions and friendly atmosphere via phone. I was competing between two stores and two different manager positions. Since the interview, the positions have consolidated and I'm sure their interview process has changed drastically.

    2 interviews, it was quite simple. The first interview is with the operations manager, where most of the questions take place. If you pass that, you go to the general manager. She basically talked up the company to me the majority of the interview
