    Interview

    I received a phone call in the middle of the while driving asking if I wanted to do an interview and how soon. I inormed her that next day would be fine. Following day I made it to the interview 5 minutes lates. spoke to the manager outside of the store for 15 min before e offered me the position. I then filled out some paperwork and after a week or so (background check). I started my first day of paperwork along with both computer and on the job training.

    Non-Existent. They let you know wha the pay was and that was that. Though I was surprised to find my base pay to be higher than discussed.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    Negotiation

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at RadioShack in June 2012.

    Interview

    Most often, a two step interview process. Either with an assistant manager then store manager or store manager then district manager. Store managers are usually trying to get to know you as far as what you are looking for in a job/ what you are hoping to accomplish within the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at RadioShack (Annapolis, MD) in December 2011.

    Interview

    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

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

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at RadioShack (Gadsden, AL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at RadioShack (Bellingham, WA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at RadioShack (Pottsville, PA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • No questions were particularly difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on the associate or assistant manager level.
