    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at RadioShack (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    The hiring process went well until they leave you hanging if you don't fit what they're looking for.

    Went through the normal interview process. Phone interview then went for a in person group interview. 2 weeks later, no email or call... That's fine if they feel that I don't fit what they're looking for *personally I disagree* but have the decency to follow up and send a quick email saying they moved on? I'm sure they have a template they can shoot if they are that "busy" and I know it's the same if you don't get a email/phone call back *you didn't get it* but that's just plain rude. Funny how the HR lady said they have southern hospitality at RS but guess that went out the door since they can't even have the courtesy to email me back.

    I would not recommend this Company for furthering their career. Terrible!!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at RadioShack (Morris, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The interview processes was minimal. The entire thing consisted of filling out an application in store, answering a couple of questions and then waiting while the manager quickly flipped through the papers. Once hired, I was asked to come in a week early because the other trainee already quit.

    Proper training was nowhere to be found, but rather haphazard training observations were conducted while we were expected to be immediately making sales we, for the most part, knew hardly anything about. Franchise Online training in the form of Web Modules were utilized, but offered little in the way of effective sales training.

    After a couple of weeks, I was expected to start operating the store on my own, handling cash deposits that should only be handled by managers, with the full awareness that my training and experience were woefully lacking and the management lived out-of-town and hour away.

    Overall, the interview was short, the hiring quick and the training negligible.

    Interview

    I was first called by a recruiter for a phone interview. After my phone interview, I was set up for an interview with the district manager about half an hour away from my location. The district manager hired me on the spot and I was told to submit some papers at another store (one I would not be working at). I never met my store manager until my first day at the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at RadioShack in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview started off with a very energized member of Human Resources going over the details of the company with me. Financials, Job expectations, the role and job description. Then a few situational based questions along with questions about what my pet peeves are, when I approach a store what am I looking for or at and etc. The HR rep did a LOT of talking and according to her its done in order to "pre-answer" any questions that I might have.

    Interview Questions

    • There werent any difficult or unexpected questions that I was asked. Be ready to discuss a little bit about P&L statements and how to tackle a store thats underperforming, what might you do to pick it back up.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was fun. Its not a one on one type of interview. They actually do a group interview so you can basically get to know the person on your left and on the right. A way to compare and contrast your skills and experience with those around you.
