Initially started with a basic phone call asking about availability. then asked a good time for an in person interview. It mostly consisted of basic interview questions that most retail positions ask. Nothing was too out there. Then after answering those questions he wanted me to demonstrate selling skills. It ended with a brief store tour.

    Interview

    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. Why would I make a good employee. The usual stuff. I was only looking for a part-time position while in college.

    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

    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 Questions

    • 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

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at RadioShack (Staten Island, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    It was just a regular process, took only 15 minutes being that its a sale job. The corporation is going under anyway so at this point im sure they will hire anyone. It is not a job you can make a living off of but it is a job so something is better than nothing i guess.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RadioShack (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview

    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.
