    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Newegg in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Typical interview. Easy questions. They seem to want to hire anyone. They built up a lot of lies about the opportunity to move up. They also lied about how well they treat their employees. Overall, this company is very misleading in their approach to finding new talented associates. They are like a revolving door with hiring, as people are constantly leaving after such poor management.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They offered 11/hour. Had I known they planned to work me like a dog, I would have asked for more.

    I applied online – interviewed at Newegg in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was great. I felt like I had a real opportunity to move up with a great company. I felt the managers quickly asserted the details of the job and made me feel good for applying. The atmosphere was comfortable and was not high-stress.

    Interview Questions

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whittier, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Newegg in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got a call an hour after I submitted application. Called me and set up an interview for 2 days from then.
    Interview was 2 people at one time, each person taking turns asking a question. Used my name a lot, which I liked.

    If you get chosen to move up in the hiring process, you are to take a 4 part test. Testing your listening skills, etiquette, spelling and grammar, and a sample email.
    I found it difficult simply because I tend to get SUPER nervous and don't do well on tests when nervous.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in City of Industry, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Newegg in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I originally applied for a position that had just been filled. The recruiter liked my resume so kept it and said he'd contact me if there was something he'd think i'd be good for. After weeks of calling back and forth we kind of lost contact. Then 2-3 weeks later the recruiter contacted me about a new position he felt i'd be good for because of my background. I told him i was interested and he submitted my resume and got me an interview a couple days later.

    They were willing to work around my schedule a little because i was currently working for another company. I was interviewed by the category manager and a director one right after the other. The questions were standard at first, "why do you want to work here" "why should we hire you," Then started to get into specifics. "if you worked here in this category, which vendor would you target?" I answered all the questions as best as i could and they were impressed. A week later i got called for a 2nd interview with another director. He would make the final decision. He asked similar question and threw in some senario questions, what would you do if... kind of questions. I sounded confident in all my responses, made sure i didn't stutter, and took a second to gather myself before just talking out of my ass. My recruiter called me 30 mins after the interview and said i got a verbal offer.

    Background check took 3-4 days and then got my written offer and accepted it.

    Negotiation Details
    There really wasn't a negotiation phase. My recruiter told me to just say i was open, and he would try to get me what i wanted. But the interviewer wanted me to give him a number. So instead of saying one number i gave him a range and gauged his reaction. He reacted like it was a reasonable range. \

    During the 2nd interview i was asked what i was looking to make again and i gave him the higher number in he range i gave in the 1st interview. He nodded like it was reasonable.

    I then got a called 30 mins after the 2nd interview and was offered more than i originally asked for.

    I would give a range between 3-4k and see how they react
