Interview

Typical questions to determine perssonality and problem solving skills. The environment was laid back and friendly, but not the most professionally setup. A lot of the questions felt repetitive. They want specific details from your own experiences. Take time before your interview to think about specific situations and employees that needed special attention.

Interview Questions

  • Most questions are about overcoming problems in specific situations.   Answer Question

    very basic, the how long is really up to you, professional, feedback could be better with in house applicants you interview in front of two or more gm /district managers they each ask you questions one after each other, there simple questions that require a problem, a what did you do, and what was the result

    Easy to negotiate with but started off very low to see if I would bite.

Interview is done with a panel consisting of General Manager, District Manager, Human Resources District Manager and potentially others. Interviews are done at the store or district office and take around an hour to complete. They ask general questions around business acumen and rate on the sheet they utilize.

    I have received 2 phone pre-interviews with Best Buy, in both interviews I was asked the exact same questions. The second call the recruiter didn't keep appointment I had to track her down.
    They asked How would I drive profits, a time when I approached a difficult situation and a time I coached someone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Boise, ID (US)) in October 2010.

    Interview

    two interviews plus online questionarre. Make sure your answers are specific, generic answers are the kiss of death. New hiring software is very difficult to navigate and check your email often for new requests or required advances in the job hiring process. Using previous customer experience's that result in big sales or saved sales are key.
