    Default Anybody work at a Best Buy? (or just some job interview help)

    i need some advice, i applied to Best Buy, had the 1st 2 interviews yesterday, and i just received a call setting up my 3rd and final interview with the GM for August 3rd. so my question is what should i expect during this interview? what should i say and what shouldnt i say?

    any help is GREATLY APPRECIATED!! even if you dont work at a Best Buy, could some of you tell of your hiring experience?

    I use to work there. From what I remember I think thatís the one they tell you, youíre the chosen one!

    But donít worry, I went threw the same crap. It looks like your going to get the Gig. Oh ya just remembered something. The 3 Interview is the one were they tell you ok, now you have to have a drug Test, which I had no problem because, I donít do drugs.

    Fair Warning, Best Buy are Snakes!

    Just look around. Everyone is new in the store, they donít keep employees too long.

    I hope that helped.

    Do you use Drugs?

    DUDE!!! RUN FAR AND FAST!!!

    BY FAR THE WORST FUCKING JOB I HAVE EVER HAD. GO SOMEWERE ELSE. ITS JUST SHITTY. AS A CASHIER I HAD A MAN THREATEN TO KILL ME AFTER I CAUGHT HIM TRYING TO PASS A BAD CHECK, AND AS A CUSTOMER SERVICE REP, I HAD A MAN TRY TO PUNCH ME OUT BECAUSE I WOULDNT TAKE BACK A PRINTER THAT HAD NO BOX OR RECIEPT. NOT TO MENTION THE PAY SUCKS AND, IF IT WERE ME, I WOULD BE "SICK' FROM NOV TO JANUARY. BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE A CASHIER AROUND CHRISTMAS TIME.

    SERIOUSLY JUST GO SOMEWERE ELSE, UNLESS YOU'RE DESPERATE, IN WHICH CASE KEEP LOOKING AFTER YOU START.

    I had an online interview for Best Buy before. It was the dumbest interview ever! They asked me if I would turn in my sister if she stole 50 cents worth of merchandise there. LOL!

    I used to work retail years and years ago. I managed a sporting goods store for a few years (BIG 5), it sucked ASSSSSSS so bad that I cant even go into a Big 5.
    I then managed the Lumber Department for a large Hardware store chain that is now out of buisness. It did suck as bad as Big 5 but was pretty close.

    The point of my story is retail sucks ass IMHO, the pay blows, customers treat you like a piece of trash and managment will use you and use you and use you untill you quit.

    A good friend of mine has a son and daughter that both worked for Best Buy just for the employee discount. Not sure how much it was, but I can find out. I do know they got a $1000 video camera for $100. They both loved working there, the girl was seasonal and is going in tomorrow to get her job back she liked it so much. Plus you don't work on commission.

    I did get a smoking deal at a Best Buy in Bellevue, WA about 10 months ago. I was walking through the appliance section and this clerk put a one day only sale sign on this stainless steel fridge. The regular price was like $1,100.00 and I got it for $252.99, it was the display and the last one in stock the Manager just wanted it out of the store. The only problem was then I had to purchase a new stove and dish washer to match.
