    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Circuit City (Richmond, VA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter. There was one interview with two people. They were very pleasant and I think it would have been a good job. I turned it down because I was worried about their financial situation. Turns out I was right, but in hindsight I wish I would have taken the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Circuit City (Madison, WI) in September 2010.

    Interview

    One interview with the sales manager and a standardized computer test. I got one call to tell me they loved me and wanted to hire me, followed up by a call 30 min later telling me I wasn't selected. I should have rejected the offer due to them being disorganized from the start.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Circuit City (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was detailed but made no sense. I had to complete about 5 surveys and 3 of them were the same. Came back a week later as I was called in and they gave me 2 of the same surveys I'd had the prior week. Clearly they were stalling for the Store Director.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Circuit City (Austin, TX) in March 2009.

    Interview

    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 Employee in Merrillville, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Circuit City (Merrillville, IN) in September 2008.

    Interview

    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.
