    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    Standard questions, boring, the managers seemed disengaged and only went through the same tired book of interview questions. I brought my own questions to spice it up a bit. I did get the job but I was a interview from another store and I think I was the only applicant

    At this point, i was already a supervisor in the company looking to transfer stores. I inquired with the general manager that I was a current supervisor at a different store looking to transfer locations. He said that he in fact had an opening and interviewed with him the next week. I interviewed with the manager in charge of sales and then the GM. I got offered the job on the spot.

    Sales Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Buy (Indianapolis, IN (US)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Initial interview questions are fairly generic. (Tell me about a time you ad to work in a team, Wat would you do if you saw an employee take a product)

    For supervisory positions, more of the same, a little more involved. (How will you motivate your team to drive sales)

    Initial interview feedback is quick, if they like you, you're hired and you get called right away. Other interviews take longer to find out about unless there is an immediate need, they will milk it not having to pay a supervisor.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you worked in a team and the team was not getting along. What did you do?   Answer Question
    • What would you do if you saw someone take a product out of the store?   Answer Question

    The negotiation phase is very one sided. You can try and say, "I want this much" but in reality you get what they give you.

    Sales Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buckhead, GA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Buckhead, GA (US)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interviewer was late. I came dressed well and could tell from the beginning that was a mistake. He was looking for some kid out of high school. He asked very silly questions that were loaded. I answered very well and at the end asked the job description. It was almost exactly in tune with the answers to my questions.
    I declined the job at the end when he told me the pay and went online and withdrew my application. This person was obviously intimidated and knew I could easily take his job.

    Interview Questions

    • They were all case studies... What would you do if someone stole? How would you train your team. Blah Blah Blah. People want to work for humans not robots   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I would not like to work in an environment where I have more skills and a better grasp of the job than my employer
