I don't have any Certs yet. But I am going to school for Networking. I have built systems. I have experience in Linux/Windows, installing OS, etc etc. And about a year in Customer Service exp.
An odd chain of events landed me an interview for a geek squad position at my local Best Buy next Friday.
About a year ago, my job as a carpenter fell through. I was jobless for almost a year before I got a job at Kmart.
I currently work at Kmart (for 6 months now) and make minimum wage as a cashier.
I can't really stand the place. And last week, out of nowhere I quit. I still don't know why I quit, or how the thought even came into my mind. I just woke up one day, called into work and quit. Nowhere to go, no second job. I applied for the geek squad that very night.
The next morning I woke up and was hit with reality and a bunch of mixed feelings. I sat there for about an hour asking myself "why the hell did I just quit my job, when I have no other job right now?!?"
It actually made me really really depressed. So I went into my work and told them that I was not going to be quitting anymore and that I was sorry for the mishap. (I also felt like a total jerk)
Anyways, I got a call from Best Buy yesterday. I got an interview set up for next Friday. I know some people are not big fans of the geek squad, but it would be a lot better than what I have right now.
I just though it was all extremely odd. I wouldn't have even applied for the position if I wouldn't have randomly quit my job like I did.
Anyways. I feel as though I would be qualified for the position. But I am nervous. The only job interview that I ever had was Kmart (which was hardly an interview). I never had an interview for any of my other jobs. I just knew somebody that got me in.
I know that there was a few members here that work/worked for the geek squad.
What should I expect at the interview ?
How should I be prepared (other than the obvious, dress nice, arrive on time etc...) ?
Any tips, suggestions would be greatly, greatly, appreciated.
