    Interview Details

    Not a bad hiring process. It's really just standard procedure. You go on their website and fill out an application. Then you call them and bug them until one of the hiring managers calls you back to set up an interview. The questions weren't tough at all.

    Sales Associate Interview

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

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Circuit City in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    I went through two interviews with various managers. One thing I found insulting was that they made me wait 45 minutes past my scheduled interview. I am sure that they would not have appreciated me showing up 45 minutes late. The manager for my final interview was kind of rude. He acted like he had better things to do and that he couldn't wait to get me out of his office. I understand retail can be busy, but maybe you should schedule your interviews when you are sure to have coverage. Basic questions about sales experience and comfort levels with certain sales position aspects. With the manager's behavior I wasn't sure if I would get the job but surprsingly was offered a position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Circuit City in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    The skills test seemed unhelpful and unneccessary, it was done on a computer on campus. The one-on-one interviews for the role were very interesting. I felt that the interview went well, but I was contacted afterward and told that the role had been given to someone with more experience.
