Sales Associate - Part Time Interview

Sales Associate - Part Time
Las Vegas, NV

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RadioShack.

Interview Details – My first interview was amazing! He kept me on my toes. It was all Q&A. He asked questions of what if. How well do I adapt to others how do I work with them. He ask me how do I work with certain areas in the store what might I have troubles with? He wanted to know how I was outside of work, What am I mainly about? Even taught me how to push warranties which really helps me now! I felt very welcomed like I got the job. I did have one interview with the manager, and if the manager feels I was good enough he passes you to district for a phone interview.
