I'M LIKE 96% SURE I GOT THE JOB AT BEST BUY??????? THE INTERVIEW WENT LITERALLY PERFECTLY??? AND I'M H Y P E??
right so i walk into the best buy w/ my portfolio n shit and say i have an appointment at 4 with the assistant manager named tim. i was 10mins early so i just scoped out the store, the employees looked not dead inside so that was a plus. at 4 on the dot tim walks out and i was expecting Assistant Manager Tim to be some middle aged grouchy guy (idk why) but he was actually an early 20's, tatted, cheerful as hell dude. shook my hand, we chatted (like, good chatting, not basic small talk) as he led me to the employee area to conduct the interview.
so he just starts out by saying like, the interview is more laid back and stuff, i'm his last interview of the day (which is good i think, because it means i leave a good impression). he looks over the info on my application and sees i preferred the Computer Department and/or Video Games Department and he asked me why i wanted to work in those departments and i was like "oh im a huge gamer" etc and hes like what do you play and i say league of legends, i love the whole esports scene, wow, overwatch, and as im saying this i can tell hes on board and he says he loves overwatch so we literally talk about overwatch for a soild minute he asked me who i play, i say mainly orisa, i main tanks etc. and hes like yeah i love blinking around as tracer and im just thinking like... This is good
he asks me about previous work, and im like "oh... i haven't worked anywhere" and he says thats ok, everyone has their first job somewhere etc. so he skips over half the interview questions b/c theyre about previous work experience lol
and i swear to god guys, every question i straight up s l a m d u n k. they were like, what would/did you do in this situation type scenarios. one was when you helped someone and i was like... today!! i helped my friend with her horticulture powerpoint. in one answer i also snuck in how i volunteered somewhere... i think all my answers were really good tbh, judging by tim's reaction and stuff. i wasn't anxious at all really, and i kinda surprised myself by how fast and confidently i was able to answer the questions, i didn't seem too akward (like i normally am when talking to strangers).
keep in mind, between every question is like, friendly banter. tim's a really funny guy, chatty and stuff, so like in the short space between questions as hes taking notes he recommended a movie, he ranted about how he hates working in the phone department, we talked about why excel is scary, just stuff like that.
and the one question that made me (and tim too i assume) think holy shit, This Is The Job For Apsa is, he asked me "say theres someone in your department who has no idea what they want, and they're totally unfamiliar with the products. what do you do." and i say "well, first i ask them basic questions, just to get some baseline information on what they might be looking for." AND HERE'S THE KICKER, then i say "i think it's important to use simpler terms, not bombard them with all my nerd knowledge." ((actual quote)) and tim literally says "that is what i've been trying to teach the employees for a month now." and we talk about how thats really important and as hes taking notes he just nods and says ((ACTUAL QUOTE)) "you nailed it."
after a few more questions, he talks about like, expectations of the job like working holidays, washing your uniform (at my disgusted/disappointed look tim laughs and says "you'd be surprised") and he says hes gotta go through the applications, and to expect another call for a 2nd interview with the manager and im like ,,,,hhhh,,,,,,, HHHH
so as hes walking me out hes like, throwing jabs at other coworkers passing by, messing w/ em, and im thinking, this seems like a really awesome work environment... he shakes my hand and says "keep killin' it in overwarch" and im like "ill try haha"
like, straight up as i was relaying all this info of all that transpired to my mom/sister/dad (over the phone) theyre all literally like you killed it in that interview and im like HHHHHHHH and they were like "yeah that 2nd interview is about hours and getting ur uniform and stuff so it's almost positive you got the job" ((is this true?? routians confirm pls to help))
SO BASICALLY i'm REALLY REALLY R E A L L Y likely to get the job i think!!!?!! and it seems like a REALLY COOL place to work actually. i'm just waiting on that call i guess, see what happens in that interview, and if i do in fact get the job
anyway yeah im happy
