Computer Technician Interview

Computer Technician
Edison, NJ

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CompUSA in August 2009.

Interview Details – Met with the Manager of the technical department, basic PC tech questions to start. Big surprise was a written test. Told them I did not have the time as the test would take about an hour, but asked if I could come back to take it, they were find with that. Went home and studied like crazy, and went back and took the test. Similar to the A+ certification test but shorter. I guess I did ok, as I got the job.

Interview Question – Unexpected question, do you have time to take a written test today!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – As my first job in the computer field, I was just happy to have an offer, so I did not really negotiate.

B2B Sales Representative Interview

B2B Sales Representative
Raleigh, NC

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at CompUSA in January 2010.

Interview Details – They'll claim you will make 50k+ your first year and over 100k by your second. You'll barely break 20k the first year if you're lucky and dont get fired first. They'll ask you for a drug test, but they'll hire pretty much anyone, they dont care. You're not there because they think you can do the job, you're there because they need someone to warm a seat and call a bunch of random people looking for someone with money to burn.

Interview Question – Management asking why you couldnt meet your sales goal for the week after increasing the expectation by 25k in a single week!   View Answer

Negotiation Details – absolutely no negotiation. Either take what they offer or walk.

Commisioned Sales Associate Interview

Commisioned Sales Associate
Miami, FL

I applied online - interviewed at CompUSA in July 2012.

Interview Details – Submitted application online and they called me after about a week. Met with sales manager (a great guy) and was told i might be called for a follow up interview. Next day the store manager asked me to come in to fill out paperwork and that an offer would be pending (drug and backround check). Started the next week.

Interview Question – Gerneralized sales and retail questions about interacting with clients and co-workers. I used to be in a fairly high level corporate sales position, so the interview was typical weeding out for non serious sales guys.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation. 100% commissioned sales. After a couple months without much training my numbers are in the top third of the big earners at my store.

General Manager Interview

General Manager
Miami, FL

The process took 3 days - interviewed at CompUSA in June 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was conducted over a two-day, Sunday-Monday period. Interviewing on only one weekday (Monday) providing you with a sense of a typical weekday ad weekend schedule. On Sunday evening I met with management in an informal setting over the evening meal. During this Sunday evening gathering management will also interview candidates. On Monday they provided an overview of the store. We were finished with this process by 1500 on Monday afternoon.
