    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview Details

    Process was short and to the point. I went though an interview with the District Manager that lasted about 15 minutes. Questions were pretty soft. Second interview with Regional Manager was even shorter. They were desperate to fix the store I was hired for, so they saw me as a good candidate and didnt want to waste time.

    Interview Questions

    Interview Details

    I was told to come in for a first interview, which I was asked minimal questions such as what's my experience in retail, how many hours I am available to work, what kind of salesman type positions have I held. Once that interview was completed and I was in my manager's favor, I was then scheduled to have a meeting with the district manager of the particular store I was applying to. After successfully completing this section of the hiring process, I moved on to starting my first of the three phases of training.
