    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
    • Give an example of a situation where you had to diffuse an angry customer situation (where they were in the wrong or misunderstood) and how did you handle it in order to follow company guidelines but also have the customer agreeable.   Answer Question

    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview Details

    After completing the application on line I sat down for an interview with the District Manager. I was approved, for hire, by the district manager and was placed in a store, as an Assistant Manager, pending interviews from the Regional Human Resources Manager (RHRM) and Regional Sales Manager (RM). I was interviewed by the RHRM within a couple of weeks and by the RM about a week later. The initial interview also includes paperwork for your background check, which takes about a week to get returned. You start working after the return of the background check and some online paperwork completion.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were very difficult. Depending on who does your interview is what decides what questions you get. Be prepared to discuss past successes and failures. If you have failures be prepared to disucss what could have been done to avoid them or what plan you were going to put in place to overcome the shortfall.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation is somewhat simple. RadioShack seems to take more low level Store Managers, so the pay is not top tier. I was offereed about $10,000 less than what I ended up with but went in about $10,000 over what they gave me. Keep in mind that there is a range in which they are allowed to offer you, and they will go for the lowest possible point if you let them.
