    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Randolph, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Randolph, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at RadioShack in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with the store manager and district manager. It was a series of questions about sales experience, strengths, weaknesses, availability, bilingual etc. I did have experience in a commission based job and with sales so that was a plus, although i know people who got hired without any experience. Ultimately you are not trained very well and only learn about selling phones because that is all they care about selling. After interview was done, they told me to wait outside for a little while they discussed my offer. The district manager came out and offered me a job and told me when to start training.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at RadioShack in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was hire as a Sales Associate, moved up to Assistant Manager and showed an extreme interest in becoming a Store Manager which resulted in an over the phone interview with the Regional Manager which was a pretty standard interview going through items such as how to retain business, increase profit, and what my accomplishments within the company so far.

    Interview Questions
    • Why Radioshack...? The question threw me off at first even though it is a simple and to the point question but when I was asked at first I did not know how to respond, and as I have interviewed others I ask the same question which has been a great start to seeing how they talk and handle themselves in a branded question and situation.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was not offered a negotiation the Regional Manager and District Manager chose a salary without ever telling me, I found out a month later and was quite dissapointed. Overall happy with everything within the company with that one exception.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview Details

    You must submit a questionnaire through an online portal. The managers take this far too seriously and will not interview you with a good score. There is also an option to add a Resume. Do it. Plenty of the applicants don't, and the few that do stand out.

    No drug test, but you will sign a paper authorizing one. There's a good chance your manager does coke anyway.

    Interview Questions
    • You will be asked questions generated from a pool that the manager has to ask you, as well as a few of their own.

      If you know anything about Transistors, circuit diagrams, wiring, or anything to do with electronics, they don't care. They will want to know what you know about cellphones.

      One question they always ask is if you own a cellphone, and if so, How would you sell your cellphone to someone?

      Make up stuff like "well it has a 8.0 mega pixel camera so you can take nice pictures with it". Name a feature, and describe how it's useful. Your technical explanations will fall on deaf ears, as your customer base is the dumbest bunch of mouth breathers you will ever meet, who don't know what Amazon is.
