    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Best Buy (Toronto, ON) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at the store, and received a call from the hiring manager in 2-3 days. She asked me some simple questions about the items in my resume and setup a in-person meeting with a sales manager. The sales manager was super friendly, and made sure I was comfortable during the whole interview process. He asked me questions from their standard 2 page questionnaire. After the interview, he told me I should meet with the GM in a week for a final interview.

    Interview

    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...

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Best Buy (Toronto, ON) in August 2012.

    Interview

    First went through a phone interview screening, mainly asked about difficulty and multitasking abilities. Make sure you do not say you will serve one customer at a time. The next phase is a 1 on 1 with a manager or supervisor, they mainly question your integrity, make sure you always say stealing is wrong and you would report all thefts.

    Interview Questions

    • There was not a difficult question. Just make sure you answer with a reasonable time to think, again for questions regarding theft, answer them speedily as possible without hesitation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Asked me what type of wage I was looking for, depending on department, mine was computers, you can ask for something like 12 per hour.

    Interview

    Was in a very noisy environment. Some of the staff were walking around and making jokes with the interviewer. Kind of nerve racking maybe for some people. The questions were very easy and only required you to standardly answer them. Nothing too special about the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Best Buy (Burnaby, BC) in August 2008.

    Interview

    A quick phone interview got me to the in person interview which was the very next day. I showed up early, and was looked at strangely. I thought it was the usual to show up 15 minutes before the interview.
    First, I was given a more in depth review of the position, then had two people interview me before being taken to the head manager for another interview. The questions were simple, and basically guided. They knew the answers they wanted, and gave them to me in their tone or in their words. It was a simple enough interview and everyone was nice enough. The process laster about an hour and a half.
