    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Chula Vista, CA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It's different for every store but the questions are kinda similar mostly they want to know your experiences and how you would act in certain situations in a workplace, if you have a not interested or not energetic manager it can be a little tense and awkward, they only really care about three things, 1. Availability how much and when can you work. 2. your knowledge going in already. 3. For sales positions how confident and easy going you are cause your job is talking.

    Be confident know your stuff going in and tell them what they want to here, your GM is really who you want to impress since he makes all the decisions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Dublin, GA (US)) in September 2018.

    Swift, insightful, and pleasant. After Applying for the same position several times, I was called in for an interview. The interview lasted approximately 40 minutes. We talked about the position, the future of the company and the type of technology I'll be using. There was some brief banter and then we talked about my experience. Afterwards the manager explained what they planned to do regarding the department moving forward.

    I was told they had to review and interview several other applicants and they would call me once they finished. A week or so later I was called and given an offer. The offer consisted of signing a digital offer sheet, background check application, and taking a drug screen. The orientation was the following week.
