Sales Associate Part Time Interview

Sales Associate Part Time

Interviewed at RadioShack

Interview Details – Online test required with various basic math, and word problems, as well as test over personality and work place related questions. The test relating word problems and basic math questions was timed and had ten minutes to complete whereas the other test was much longer and had several pages of personality and workplace interaction questions.

Interview Question – The most difficult questions within the tests where the math number sequence questions. It was also stressful due to the timed nature of this test portion.   Answer Question

Sales Associate - Part Time
Las Vegas, NV

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RadioShack.

Interview Details – My first interview was amazing! He kept me on my toes. It was all Q&A. He asked questions of what if. How well do I adapt to others how do I work with them. He ask me how do I work with certain areas in the store what might I have troubles with? He wanted to know how I was outside of work, What am I mainly about? Even taught me how to push warranties which really helps me now! I felt very welcomed like I got the job. I did have one interview with the manager, and if the manager feels I was good enough he passes you to district for a phone interview.

Part Time Sales Associate Interview

Part Time Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at RadioShack.

Interview Details – You must submit a questionnaire through an online portal. The managers take this far too seriously and will not interview you with a good score. There is also an option to add a Resume. Do it. Plenty of the applicants don't, and the few that do stand out.

No drug test, but you will sign a paper authorizing one. There's a good chance your manager does coke anyway.

Interview Question – You will be asked questions generated from a pool that the manager has to ask you, as well as a few of their own.

If you know anything about Transistors, circuit diagrams, wiring, or anything to do with electronics, they don't care. They will want to know what you know about cellphones.

One question they always ask is if you own a cellphone, and if so, How would you sell your cellphone to someone?

Make up stuff like "well it has a 8.0 mega pixel camera so you can take nice pictures with it". Name a feature, and describe how it's useful. Your technical explanations will fall on deaf ears, as your customer base is the dumbest bunch of mouth breathers you will ever meet, who don't know what Amazon is.

Sales Associate - Part Time Interview

Sales Associate - Part Time
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at RadioShack in August 2011.

Interview Details – I worked at Arby's and was recruited to RadioShack. You fill out an online application that covers both your personality and your thinking skills. The managers then get a score on you and if you will make the cut. I got called in two days after I filled it out. He asked me a few questions about my work history and myself. I didn't get a call for a month. When I finally did I was asked to come in for a panel interview. Three other managers interviewed me and asked similar questions. A lot were "name a time" that had to do with customer service. I was then called once more to meet with the district manager where I finally got the okay to join the company. Overall it was too long of a process for just being a part time employee.

Interview Question – "What kind of phone do you have?" "Sell it to me" never being into the electronics or sales business this was a difficult question for me.   Answer Question

Sales Associate - Part Time

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at RadioShack in October 2012.

Interview Details – I came in for parts one day, the manager looked up my application online. He called me in on the following few days in the week and interviewed me, asking me what the most important part of RadioShack is and why I wanted to work for RadioShack.

Interview Question – He asked me to call him and have a teleconference before I was hired with a district hiring manager, but then he bypassed the call somehow and had me hired in a couple days because it was urgent (because of such high turnover)   Answer Question
