Very Difficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Flextronics in December 2010.
Interview Details – An employee referral led me to an interview with some guy from Florida. The recruiter arranged the date. I sat through a two hour interview as he went over my resume which had about 15 years worth of electronics and field tech experience. Turns out these guys had an internmal applicant that was going to get the job all along---2700 miles away in New York. How unprofessional, stringing a guy who's looking for work and probably more qualified than the internal applicant and giving it away to someone who has no geographical knowledge of the area that has to be navigated on a daily basis.

Interview Details –
Honestly, when they go through in detail about the ways that you're going to be disciplined for not making your monthly quota right in the interview, the job is probably not for you.
The position that I was interviewing for was at a Verizon store in really dank mall with very little traffic about an hour south of Pittsburgh.
The lady that set me up for the interview gave me the wrong time and place to interview. I had to call her back and they had to rush someone out to where I was. I had to wait almost two hours. The guy they rushed out to where I was, admitted that he hadn't interviewed anybody in a while. He was nice enough and straight forward but maybe he was too forward. It made me very skeptical when he put most of the emphasis on the disciplinary procedures for not making your sales quota.
He also made it very that this was a sales position, NOT a customer service position. I found that interesting since customer service is most, if not all, of a sales position.
In the end, I wasn't all that thrilled about going away for two weeks to do their training, even if it was all paid. Also, it was the store I applied to was too far for me to commute (I live over an hour away).
They said they'd let me know within a week. I didn't hear from them until a month later and they said they were still going through the interview process and they would be in touch soon (that was over a month ago).
Overall, the pay and the benefits sound nice on the surface but its stressful job that you probably won't like in the end. They also made it clear that you probably won't get very much time off, working a lot of 6 day weeks at odd hours. I've worked retail before that wasn't even close to being this stressful,

Interview Details – Interview suppose to be 3 hours, lasted almost 4 1/2. Interviewed with several people who all read the same questions from the same script. The toughest interviewer was HR. She didn't sit down for most of the interview and her phone rang constantly. She seemed to be disinterested in the process. She wanted to know two weaknesses and seemed to hone in on your response and try to apply how it would be an issue at the company.
