I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PeachMac.
Interview Details – The interview process is somewhat thorough. The interview I attended was a pre-store opening interview and included nearly 8 different managers conducting the interview. They all asked very similar questions and answers were graded between 0 and 2. 0 Being unable to perform task, 1 being ~mediocre understanding of task and 2 fully capable of performing task (I didn't really care for that format, but it's functional I suppose). I did end up getting the job offer, and as far as income is concerned, the offer was quite acceptable when compared to previous employment, performing the same type of work.
Interview Question – I can't really recall any question that was too difficult. They pertained mostly to applicable job tasks. I suppose one could be ''How do you handle stress when diagnosing machines? As in, lets say there is a long line of customers in the front and there are already several machines in the back that you are working on (there is only one technician), how would you handle this?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I'm sure I would have been able to negotiate, as I was asked if the offer was acceptable; but given the offer, I gladly accepted it due to it being much higher than any offer received in the area for this particular work.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PeachMac in May 2013.
Interview Details – I aplied for the position of part-time sales specialist on about April 23rd or 2013, and I recieved a call from the store manager in mid-May of 2013. There was only one interview, and the type of questions really threw me off. I thought they would be about detailed computer information, but it was more focused on me as a person, not me as a computer specialist, which I liked.
Interview Question – The most difficult question I was asked was "If you are trying to explain to an older customer what an external hard drive/flash drive does, how would you do it?" and "How would you explain the different storage spaces to an older customer?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negociating, I was offered the position of Sales Specialist, at the pay rate of $9.50/hr. and was told to come in for my first day a week later. The training was very thorough, but I aced it.
Very Easy Interview
The process took a day - interviewed at PeachMac in October 2011.
Interview Details – Pretty easy interview really. Mostly you just sat and listened to a description of the store and company as a whole. The questions were what one would expect from an entry level management position in retail (how would you deal with problems, how would you motivate employees, etc.). Overall I got a good vibe from the interviewer and they had the courtesy of a deadline at which point I would know I didn't get the job. The only negative was there was little review of actual qualifications and the interviewer informed me that they receive a lot of applications (almost bragging). But the experience was positive in that I not only walked away very informed about the company but also with the realization that this position was not for me.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at PeachMac in October 2010.
Interview Details – The store manager and her supervisor met me at the Barnes & Noble Cafe adjacent to the local Macon, Georgia PeachMac store. Both individuals came across as being polite and professional. The interview questions were very basic regarding background experience with a final question regarding hardware knowledge. They referred to the training process as 'boot camp' and the general employee age in this store appeared to be under 30. The salary they offered at the time ($38,000) was a little below my requirements. I was a bit surprised by the supervisors' extensive arm tattoos. Middle Georgia is generally quite conservative and while that was not quite my style I'm sure it would be just the thing for a younger person.
