    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Fairly general interview questions. Very friendly interviewers. It was a 2 interview process. The first one seemed more along the lines of informing you about the position to see if you still were interested. The second one had more questions along the lines of work ethics. Both interviews seemed laid back, but still had the important questions.

    Interview Details

    Meet with Geek Squad Manager and Store Manager. Interviews weren't substantial and they took me at my word on my experience. More focused on sales experience than technical. I had all the basis for an A+ cert but they were more happy that i'd worked as a sales rep elsewhere.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview Details

    Someone in HR initially called to ask about availability and if I still wanted then position, scheduled an interview for 2 days later. The manager was really disinterested and had half a pen in his mouth the whole time. He seemed bored and it immediately turned me off wanting to work for Best Buy.
