Salesman Interview

Salesman

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Future Shop in November 2013.

Interview Details – I handed in my application and within about a month I received a phone call asking if I could come in for an interview at 12:30 the next day. I arrived 10 minutes early and my interviewer was the late one who came out around 12:45. He brought me into the back room where I guess they do interviews, and proceeded with the questions. During the interview, he kind of hinted to me that I wasn't going to get the job, and I felt kind of offended.

Interview Question – They asked me how I would make friends quickly.   Answer Question

Camera Sales Interview

Camera Sales

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Future Shop in September 2010.

Interview Details – I met with the first interviewer and I guess he was impressed because he sent me for a second interviewimmediately with a store manager (don't think it was the GM). Anyways, I waited for a bit and then met with the manager, this interview lasted about 20 minutes or so. He asked me a bunch of questions such as "how would you deal with a customer who says that they don't need any help?" or "How would you assist a customer who is unsure of what type of tablet they want?" (I am applying for entertainment).

Interview Question – It's been 48 hours but no call back. Should I assume that they decided not to call me? Or perhaps it's just taking a bit longer to get back to me. I'm really excited about this job so any feedback towards my situation would be greatly appreciated!   Answer Question
