    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Interview was quite simple due to turning rate of employees. There were 2 interviews total. One by the shift manager and second by department manager. Questions were relatively easy. Just the basic stuff and what you could contribute to the company. Since cashier is a customer service position focus on explaining the characteristics that would make you stand out.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Fry's Electronics.

    Interview Details

    I was hired as the holiday rush began. As such, they didn't have time to really interview me to the fullest. There were three interviews, one with a hiring coach, one with the department manager, and then the store manager. Each interview was only a few minutes and asked all the usual questions. The major downside: we spent the entire day standing around waiting to be interviewed. 6 hours just waiting. Good news is they made a decision that same day, but I wasted an entire day doing so.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing, really. It was all pretty standard. What do you expect for an entry level cashiering job with no growth opportunity.   Answer Question

    After submitting an application, they contacted me by phone in about a week, at which time they set up an interview. When I interviewed, it was with 2 managers, one after the other. After this process, they scheduled me to come back the next day to interview with the store manager. The next step was a drug test and then I was hired.
