Interviewed at Fry's Electronics

Interview Details – Very easy!! They just asked simple questions of any previous experience I had. They also asked about my grades in school since I was still in High School and they wanted to know my work ethic. I did pretty well and since I was taking AP and Honors classes at the time they could see that I was a hard worker.

Merchandiser Interview

Merchandiser
Campbell, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fry's Electronics in May 2012.

Interview Details – You have to walk in and hand in an application. Got a call back two weeks later to come in for an interview. I had to go through two interviews. The first one is a preliminary screening with a department manager who basically asks you about your qualifications and some of the things on your resume. Afterwards he hands you a paper with about 20 "where do you see yourself in 5 years" type questions to complete. Next you have an interview with the store manager who basically asks you questions from the form. Your either hired or not the same day.

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.
