    Interview

    very brief, wasn't asked many technical questions but still was decent for entry level job. I was called to come in three days after applying and we discussed the business, why I wanted to work there, and a time when I felt like I was very successful, all the basic questions. The interviewer was the manager and liked me straight away so didn't ask a lot more than those things.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maplin Electronics (London, England (UK)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I had the interview with the then store manager who left not long after. He was pretty nice. I generally got the impression, however, that he didn't really care about the interview. He was just looking for someone to fill a slot that he needed filled pronto and since I knew two product ranges the stop sold, I was pretty much handed the job by the end of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know much about technology?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiations. I no longer had to work for Tescos doing menial labour and thought this would be a good step up to a carrier. How wrong I was. If I'd stayed with Tescos, I'd be earning about twice as much as I am here.
