    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    Interview process is pretty quick - got a phone call the day after I applied and had an in-person interview the day after that. One phone interview, one in-person interview with the manager and lastly an in-person interview with the general manager.
