    Computer Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kitchener, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Buy Canada (Kitchener, ON) in May-2012.

    Interview

    - Was at a Best Buy job fair in a Holiday Inn
    - A lot of people there
    - They were hiring people for all types of positions
    - Had to go through 3 stages with 3 different interviewers
    - First interviewer takes your application, name, resume, and tells you to wait for the next interviewer.
    - Then you go through 2 more interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • First Interviewer: Asks your name, How did you hear about this position?, do you have any referrals?, etc...

      Second and third interviewers:
      - "If you saw your friend take a pen from his work place, would you report it?"
      - "Name a time when you had a conflict with someone and how you managed to solve it."

      They also might ask you technical questions related to the position you are applying for. For example, if you are applying for a Computer sales job then you would get asked technical questions about computers.

      They might hire you on the spot I am not sure.

      They pretty much hinted that I had got the job and shook my hand, however they didn't extend a formal job offer.   Answer Question
