Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Annapolis, MD

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at RadioShack in December 2011.

Interview Details – They use the "cattle call" method so popular with multi-level management corporations these days. You may get interviewed by the Store Manager, a manager from another store, the Division Manager, or the DM's current toady of choice. The interview can be very job specific, or very vague, depending on who does it. The main goal is to see how much sh*t you will take.

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. They pay and schedule from a plan that has nothing to do with an individual's ability or requirements.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Gadsden, AL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at RadioShack in August 2011.

Interview Details – The interviewing process for RadioShack is fairly simple, but make sure that you go into the interview level headed and don't make some stupid guess at the questions. Management WILL laugh behind your back once you leave. I've seen this happen multiple times. Managers don't really care to hear what you have to say.

Assistant Store Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at RadioShack.

Interview Details – Asked what was required for an associate to move up to the ASM position. Was informed that I needed to fill out some paperwork, bring my numbers up, and complete the ASM training modules on the company's site. Main reason for the application was due to the lack of a decent base pay at the entry pay

Interview Question – can I improve my numbers?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – asked if there was an issue with the fact that I only had about 4 months of employment. There was none. I went unopposed during my application just for bidding for the position.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Pottsville, PA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at RadioShack in July 2010.

Interview Details – Long delay between first and second interview. The second interview also felt like a token gesture, more as a show of authority on the part of the District Manager than anything.

The first interview was of relatively solid quality, but that is subjective depending upon the Store Manager conducting it. Questions are run-of-the-mill, with no major curveballs. Biggest influencing factors are energy, enthusiasm, and appearance. No piercings, cover tattoos, show some enthusiasm for sales, and dress respectably. You'll be fine.

Interview Question – No questions were particularly difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation on the associate or assistant manager level.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Bellingham, WA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at RadioShack in July 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online. That is the first step they use to weed out potential employees. The system will take your answers to the questions and grade you against a number they are ideally looking for. This number is pretty much average, so if you want to do well, just act kind of "meh" about everything. As for the actual face-to-face interview, they will want you to show passion and enthusiasm, as well as a willingness to have a flexible schedule. You need to be very excited about selling phones, as well as eager to learn as much as possible about all the other random stuff that particular store will carry. The more energetic you are, the better your chances are.

Interview Question – I was asked to sell my interviewer his stapler. Just gave a basic sales pitch and he dug it. You should expect a very traditional interview. They give the managers a list of questions to read off, with associated follow up questions based off of how you answer. They literally try to take all need for thought away from the managers. It's a little sad. Just google "interview questions" and prepare accordingly.   Answer Question
