    Sales Representative Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Retail Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview Details

    Very rarely are you hired off the street for a store management position. You have to work your way up from Associate or Assistant Manager. Once you've been considered for the position of manager, you will be given an interview by the District Manager. Time permitting, you may also have a panel interview with the District Manager, Regional Sales Director, and a Human Resources Recruiter. They will first want to know little bit about your past, but majority of the questions are in regards to how you will run the business.I remember them specifically asking what I would do if I had an employee that was consistently not hitting sales plan. How long would I give them to get the numbers up, what would I do to help this employee, and ultimately how long would it be before I had to terminate that employee.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the questions I hate being asked and it seems to come up in a lot of interviews is what do you think your greatest weaknesses are? How do you plan on overcoming these weaknesses in order to be a successful store manager?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Unfortunately, there is almost no negotiating any pay at RadioShack. Part-time and full-time associates are paid minimum wage, assistant managers get 20% over minimum wage. Managers however can be paid a little differently. There is a maximum payout for any given store. However, the district manager does not have to pay that manager that maximum payout. He can pretty much choose anything lower and then work his way up if you try to negotiate. But the thing is, you have no clue what the maximum number is. The number that they throwout to you might very well be the maximum.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview Details

    Very simple and quick- submitted resume, was called for a phone interview, came in for a face to face interview, spoke with three people separately, and was called a few days later and offered the position over the phone.

    After I applied online I had to do a skills test for microsoft word/excel/access etc. They asked some downright silly questions, and it took a lot longer than expected. However, I scored higher on the test than my boss's boss.
