Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at RadioShack in August 2011.

Interview Details – Very relaxed, Basic interview, Basic questions. If you can talk wireless and sales you got the job. They basically want to know if you can sell phones and if you can get your staff to sell phones. Radio shack is a wireless business first and a consumer electronics store second.

Interview Question – Why should I hire you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate. They made an offer I made a counter and they declined my counter. It was take the job at this rate or we'll find somebody else.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Cheektowaga, NY

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 Question – 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
New York, NY

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at RadioShack in November 2009.

Interview Details – fill out online application, complete assessment exam ( 1 hour long, math part can be difficult because its not real life situations ), interview is as long as the interest is to hire you. if your good, it will take some time, if you not good, dont have all the right responses, poor body language, poor posture, interview can be quick. must have a current up to date resume

Interview Question – the regional director of operations ( RDO ) of metro NYC asked me: "if there was only ONE thing in this business that you could have control over, what would it be?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – salary was depended on location and or volume, the bigger the store/ higher the volume, the more you would be paid. there are occasional......again...occasional merit increases...but not every year and it depends on your performance. but the skies the limit to your earning potential at 1.5% commission of everything you sell if that sounds like alot lol..yea i had to laugh...
