    Had an initial interview with a supervisor that entailed very basic interview questions and preferences regarding department. The second interview was with the general manager and was similar and almost less specific than the initial interview.

    Interview Details

    You sit down with a manager and are asked a series of questions, none that are too difficult. A lot of questions asking what would you do if a certain situation happened. As long as you answer the questions well you should be fine.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ban Phone Savang (Laos)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with very basic questions from a corporate recruiter. Tell me about your current position. Tell me about your most recent feedback session. Tell me about your must successful professional accomplishment. Tell me how you handle an under performing employee. I asked for feedback and recruiter said I didn't expound deep enough into building a diverse team or how I manged teams. Which I didn't feel the questions were suited to get those answers. Be prepared to give cultural inclusion answers and sway your answers towards building a team even if the interview questions dont.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MS (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online and it took less than a week for them to call me to set up an interview. The interview was set up for 2 pm on a Friday. The interviewer was almost an hour late. During the interview he was on the his phone. He was very unprofessional. I was offered the job and was told that I would be receiving a call the next day. He didn't call that day even after I called to check up on the process for almost a week. I eventually decided to call for one last time and I was told that they were not hiring anymore and the lady asked to take down my information and he would give me a call. I told her never mind because I was given the run around for a week for a job that I was initially told that I had. I will never shop at that particular Best Buy again.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult. Typical interview questions. "Name a time that you helped someone out in a time of need", "Name a time you went the extra mile for a customer", "Name a time you dealt with a difficult customer and what was the outcome?"   Answer Question
