    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (Anaheim, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I originally applied for a customer service job, introduced myself to the manager & handed him my application. The manager said that he would be giving my application to the supervisor in computers (why? not sure). About an hour later, I received a call to schedule an interview for the following day. I went in 10 minutes early, & waited by a register. Finally, 40 minutes passed ...still no supervisor! And that's when about 20-30 other applicants showed up!! We were all placed at separate registers, and asked simple questions about ourselves. I was asked to sell a PINK paperclip to the supervisor, which I did & then was given two pieces of paper, one titles INTERVIEW #1 & the second being, INTERVIEW #2. Both sheets contained questions about what my favorite previous job was & why, what I had learned, who my favorite previous boss was & why, what my boss & co-workers would say about my work ethic, words that describe me, how I feel about criticism, gaps between employment, why I want to work at Fry's & what I feel I could offer. Filled the sheets out & was asked to walk around the store for 20 minutes... came back & was told to wait outside an office for a 3rd interview. By that time, there was MAYBE 5 of us left. 3rd interview was short & sweet... she basically shook my hand, told me that I would be working full time doing merchandising (possibly sales), & sent me to take a drug test. VERY SIMPLE. This was a VERY impersonal interviewing process, make sure you're wearing a white top, black dress pants, comfy dress shoes ( you may be standing for HOURS while they interview) & a huge smile....don't be nervous, it's really not so bad!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (Austin, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I went to speak with the supervisor of the cafe about my previous food experience. She liked me so I filled out a paper form and put it in a box by the front door. A week later I was called, came in and stood in line with other candidates and was asked a list of basic questions (felt like an assembly line) by some random managers from other departments. Later that week the supervisor called back and offered me the job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (Burbank, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I walked into the store filled out an application and spoke directly with the manager. (If you just fill it out, I don't think you will ever be called in for an interview) We arranged for my interview a couple days later. The interview process was very easy. I was interviewed by two supervisors/managers and then the store manager. All three acted extremely unprofessional, making the interview process very easy. I went for my drug test...then they called and said I start tomorrow. The first week is 40 hours of training.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (Palo Alto, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Walk in application, HR calls and schedule the first round. long wait, then a dept. manager comes to interview, basic questions about who you are and what you want to do, no experience necessary. what he or she told you that day is completely irrelevant to what job you get in the end though. then he or she will tell you whether you will come to another interview with the store manager, again, long wait. it seems the management is never punctual, yet they require you to be on time all the time. again, easy interview.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (San Diego, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Just a quick very informal 1:1 Session where I was asked several computer hardware related questions. Make as if a customer wanted to build a computer for a certain ammount and for the purpose of gaming. What I would recommend.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know the difference in speed of different models of solid state drives?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was none. It was straight from the 1:1 with questions about yourself, and finally being told to fill out some background check paper work and the position I would have. During the questions phase they did ask if my schedule was flexible. This would be the time to talk about hours. That's it. No talk of what the pay would be.
