    Interview Details

    I had a one-on-one interview with the District Manager, with the Store Manager sitting in when he wasn't helping with customers. I was interviewing for an assistant manager position even though my previous position was a SM. The interview was pretty straight forward, nothing stands out in my mind as unusual. However, any question I asked pertaining to the job, for instance "what are the hour requirements" I was answered with details pertaining to the SM position. I understand that I said I was interested in moving up within the company, but the position that was available was an ASM, not a SM. Through the course of the interview I learned the company (or at least that district) is really into micromanaging, which I don't thing is needed in most cases. This lead me to feel that I was over qualified for the position, and even for a SM position. Have you ever heard of a DM needing to interview every person a SM is interested in hiring before an offer can be made? Do they have any faith in the people they place in management positions? They require a minimum of 52 hours a week from SM and 6 days. I was told this was because they have found that stores perform best when the SM is present, so they simply try to keep them there as much as possible. My jaw almost dropped when I heard this, whatever happened to holding your employees accountable in your absense? I was then told that given my experience I could probably start at 5 and a half days and see how it went. Again, I was interviewing for an ASM position....more went on and the interview concluded with the DM telling me that they were going to talk and get back to me the next day. No one did. I waited four days and called the SM. An associate answered the phone and told me the SM was available and asked for my name, he came back on the phone and SOMEHOW the SM was busy on another call all of sudden and he needed to take a message. Needless to say I was never called back, I got ingored like that one more time before deciding that a company with interviewing practices like that, wasn't a place I wanted to be anyways. Now I KNOW I was overqualified for that position! I think the people who would do well as a SM with RadioShack would be someone who doesn't have any prior SM experience. Good luck to all who pursue it.
