I applied in-person – interviewed at Future Shop.

Interview

Very easy and relaxed. The GM basically wanted to know if I could work over the Christmas holidays and on boxing day. The hiring process and paper work is very easy and straight forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Future Shop.

    Interview

    Future Shop hires through their online application process. You can walk into the store to hand in a resume if you want, however most stores simply throw these in the shredder and inform you it would be best to apply online. Many of the initial first steps in the hiring process do not involve staff at the store level, but instead at the corporate level. This means the store managers have more time to focus on the store while the people who are tasked with hiring focus on the first round of elimination through the resume pile.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are very basic. They were so bland I don't even remember the hiring process. If you've had a sales job in the past you'll know how to answer questions about customer service and job related questions. Express that you are there to create customers for a life and a positive buying experience - they love to hear that. You'll never actually do that with this employer, but they want to hear you say you will all the same.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Based on my previous experience I negotiated a wage that was fair, however most of my income was commission based. If you don't sell enough you end up making base wage and if you do this consistently I wouldn't expect to be around for very long.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Future Shop.

    Interview

    I applied online.. took around half an hour.
    I get a call scheduling me for a phone interview, they called the next day 15 minutes earlier than expected but that's okay..
    Asked me the basic questions you know, have you ever been convicted, what if a coworker stole from the store, what is professionalism to you, how much are you expecting to get paid, what is your availability, describe a situation where you had a difficult customer all that good stuff.
    Then I get a call for the face to face interview, I was so nervous I really wanted the job.
    The manager kept me waiting a good 20 minutes. He said he really liked me, what position do I want to be placed, will I ever steal from this store? No? That was it.
