    Computer Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (Wilsonville, OR).

    Interview

    Fry's entry interviews are a three-step process. First you are contacted by one of the Customer Service Supervisors, who are usually left to recruiting and training concerns. Following this, an interview with the manager of the department you have applied for. Finally, you'll be invited to an arbitrary meeting with the manager or assistant manager of the store where an offer of employment is usually made.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Decline the offer. Fry's is a miserable place to work and the promises made by management cannot be trusted. If you do expect anything from them, make sure it is in writing and ironclad. Several co-workers and myself all suffered because of failure to deliver by the employer, both on transfers to different departments and promotions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (San Diego, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Just a quick very informal 1:1 Session where I was asked several computer hardware related questions. Make as if a customer wanted to build a computer for a certain ammount and for the purpose of gaming. What I would recommend.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know the difference in speed of different models of solid state drives?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was none. It was straight from the 1:1 with questions about yourself, and finally being told to fill out some background check paper work and the position I would have. During the questions phase they did ask if my schedule was flexible. This would be the time to talk about hours. That's it. No talk of what the pay would be.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (City of Industry, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    They call to arrange a quick interview with a deparment manager, if you pass this, you then get another interview with the district manager, after that you are then sent to get a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    • It depends on the department. Audio Video just gives a basic trivia test on TV and Audio technologies, the questions are not technical at all.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiating a salary, it is fixed. Part of which they hire for is based on the schedule of availability, it is very difficult to work around that afterwards.
