I applied online and then had a follow up phone call to come in and do an in-store interview. Most questions were very basic. They wanted to know my background, what were my strengths/weaknesses.

    Online. It takes about 40 minutes total. Phone call to set up interview. Then the interview was around 40 minutes long including normal interview questions. Afterwards I was offered a job though a phone call 4 days later, it took 2 and a half weeks to actually get a shift scheduled due to them losing my background check.

    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at RadioShack in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    When I first walked in I was immediately struck by the combination of people who were laid back but also knew what they were doing. The manager was awesome and very kind. The questions were straightforward but comfortable and I could tell it was going to be a good match. After the interview it was just a few days before I got the offer so there was no waiting around.

    Negotiation Details
    It's minimum wage plus a bit of commission so there was no negotiation phase. Considering the amount of knowledge and training needed to do the job well, it's not really enough but it is good work.
