Sale Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Collegeville, PA (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Collegeville, PA (US)) in January 2014.

Interview

Phone interview from an HR representative was the first step. Next you go in for a face-to-face interview with either a department or store manager. Pretty typical interview questions for a retail environment(asking about working as a team, dealing with customers, problem-solving examples, etc.).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I walked in to see if they were hiring and got an interview on the spot since they happened to be interviewing that day. I spoke with a department manager who seemed to like me so I met with the store manager a week later. The store manager asked a bit tougher questions but seemed to just want to get a feel for my work ethic. The next day they called and offered me the job.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    Quick, but I could tell the Hiring Manager wasn't interested in me as soon as I took a seat.
    He only asked a few questions. There were 2 people who interviewed before me, so his decision was laready made.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy (Clackamas, OR (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very typical interview for a retail type job. Business casual for interview, leaning a little more towards business side. Very keen on personality and customer service skills more so than knowledge of technology. They will teach you everything you need to know about products, but handling customers is something you want to know going in.
