So, as a lot of you know I'm a technology addict and have pretty much known that since I was like 10-11. So, I've known for a long time that when I get a job it HAS to be Best Buy. I have absolutely NO desire to work anywhere else, seriously.

So, a month ago, I filled out their online application, which took like an hour and was a huge pain. About a week or two later I had been napping, heard my phone ringing, and checked. When my friend had told me the previous day Best Buy was going to tell me, she told me it would be a INSERTAREACODEHERE number. So, when I saw the area code I quick woke myself up and answered. They interviewed me and gave me a date to come in and interview.

So, the day of the interview came and I was nervous as fuck, literally. So, I went in and the whole experience was just painful and awkward. The interviewer wasn't personable at all and was really straight forward with the questions and acted really bored. I tried to make it more fun... but who knows what she really thought of me.

Then another 2 weeks later, after I had already pretty much came to terms with the fact I didn't think I got the job, they called me back again!!! So today I went in for an interview and it went SOOOO well. They were laughing, impressed, and had me sell them a DVD and told me I did AMAZING when I was done. (I have experience selling them, so yeahhh... I must say i AM pretty good). Then they gave me a brief cash register tutorial and quizzed me on stuff, which I passed with flying colors. So now I have an interview with the GM on Thursday at 5:00! GUYS IM STOKED!!!!

I've heard horror stories about Best Buy a few years back, although they might have eased up on the bullcrap by now. I don't mean to do too much parade-raining, but be careful how much of the Kool-Aid you drink.

Just remember, Emma: It's only a job. They don't own you. Work there, do a good job, get paid, take advantage of the employee discount, but when their "employee culture" starts to interfere with your personal life, it's time to keep looking.

Thanks guys, yeah I made sure to apply at the store that I know has the nicestmanagers, this store is far less pushy then the others and you can tell they genuinely care about their customers. But yeah, I'm pretty excited Smile Thanks for the advice.

Wow ! Your first "real" job. Congratulations ! And good luck !!

My first job where I earned an actual paycheck from big company (not like lowing lawns) was selling concessions at the local movie theater. So you're already a huge step up !

Have fun with it. The happier you are doing your job, the better you will be at it. And people will notice. This is true of many things.
