    Interview

    The interview was at a sprint store within radio shack. I had an interview with 2 managers that worked with sprint, and 1 manager from radio shack. Overall, the interview was smooth and easy process, I think I didn't get the position because I let them know that I will have to be away for 2 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sprint (Lansing, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was extremely long for me but fair. I think the automation needs to be addressed as I was promised an email to complete drug testing and background check which took weeks to recieve. Seriously it's an email with standard business partners that Sprint utilizes over and over it shouldn't take any real time to get that out.

    Interview Questions

    • I interviewed with three store managers and one regional. They didn't ask anything too wacky or off beat and for the most part addressed what they wanted in an associate. It was fair and acceptable by my standards.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sprint (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Really brief and straight to the point. They ask you very generic questions to see how motivated you are. Questions based on commission and working with your peers, fairly comfortable interview. The most unexpected question was whether i would rathe work with commission or base pay. I chose base pay.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sprint (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting on Sprint website and filling out an hour-long test and questionnaires, got a call from district GM to come for an interview. Came early, interview started on time - 2 people interviewed me, male and female, they said each "managed about 10 stores". Cons: I was asked if I would be OK to go outside the store and distribute flyers and "stand on the street sign shaking" - when the store is slow. SIGN SHAKING!!! I politely noted that usually companies are hiring separate people to do those things (keeping to myself that a degree or even high school education is not required to perform those duties, not even an ability to speak English) but they didn`t get the point and pressed that the retail sales people should be OK doing those things. Bummer! I really thought sales people usually are inside air conditioned store selling things, not standing on the street in 100 degrees LA heat inhaling car fumes sign shaking! Little did I know... I have lots of sales experience so naturally I asked what are the opportunities for promotion and moving between the stores for best performers, in case my store does not have a higher level position open. The lady enthusiastically explained that "Yes definitely, I can move you from on store to another. If you perform great and your sales are high, and there is a store in a slow location that is struggling with making their quotas - I will move you to that store!" Did she hear herself? That just didn`t make any sense. So if I sell great - I`ll be put to the worst location? No, thank you! The base pay is 12-14/hr "depending on experience" and they made it clear that they start you at $12. The guy said "commissions is where people make the most money". At the beginning, I gave them my resume and they both started reading it saying "Tell us something about yourself". I was waiting politely for them to finish reading (I guess they have never seen my resume before??), and was told to start talking WHILE they read. I said "well, I thought I`ll give you a moment to read first" and was told "go on, we can read it and you can talk at the same time". At that point I wanted to leave. I mean, that`s disrespectful - to do or read anything while the applicant is talking, and especially disrespectful to show that they both did not even prepare for the interview by taking one minuted to scan through my resume. The back office was filthy dirty and the arm chairs had huge numerous holes in them, they looked like they were taken from a homeless person. I had to sit on one of those PROS: I didn`t see any. Being put in the slowest location because I am great in sales and stand on the street sign shaking is really not an appealing job. I wasn`t hiding my reaction during the interview LOL was such a waste of my time!
