    I applied online – interviewed at Sprint in February 2013.

    It took around 5weeks from start to finish. Phone interview and then one on one interview. No hard questions. He did ask me to sell a pencil to him also asked how you would. Handle an upset customer. Nothing to hard for veteran sales people

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sprint in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called a few days later. I've interviewed here before and got to the panel interview and was ultimately turned down. This time, I interviewed at the store with the store manager and assistant manager. The interview consisted of behavioral and questions about prior work experience. Very easy and simple stuff. I just kept an upbeat attitude and elaborated on every answer. When I got to the question about my availability, she learned that it would conflict because there were other college students that worked there, and they already have certain days off. But we continued to talk, and I could tell if it wasn't for my class schedule, I would have gotten hired. A week later, I get a call from them and they said that they can work with me, and need me ASAP, and that I would be able to skip the panel interview. They emailed me my drug test and background review consent, and also asked for three letters of recommendation. I was in training the very next week.

    I did very well in my interview. I found out from my assistant manager that the store manager pushed for an increase in my initial offer (hourly pay). Everyone is on the same commission scale.

    Really quick and to the point. Not very extensive. They were hiring in the masses so it was really easy to interview. Had a phone interview and then one with the manager.

    Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elk Grove, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elk Grove, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sprint in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have been in the tech industry for several years and I understand the importance of market trends and customer service. I am a military veteran with extensive life experience. Never in my life have I felt so insulted and confused as to why someone asks me for my opinion then responds with "if that's what you think then you just aren't human."

    Be careful interviewing here because I have no idea what they want, they showed me no desire for any particular personality type. I am a outgoing, outspoken and friendly person with loyal traits. I understand an interview needs to be performed in certain ways but this felt as if it was a nightmare. One of the managers was very personable and likable. The other just came off negative, rude and too opinionated and lacked the traits of professionalism I would expect for a 'people' job.

    I am very upset and distraught over this, maybe I should just pursue my career in law enforcement where I expect to be talked to any way possible. I am not a sensitive person but when I observe all of these qualities I am quite concerned with who the company has already chosen to hire before me.

    I have not been extended an offer yet and if I do get offered I will be mind blown.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sprint in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted the day after I applied and went in for a interview with the store manager. I was asked a few questions that would expect but the overall interview lasted an hour and was a cake walk. He then called another store manager with me in the room and set up my second interview the next day. The second interview only lasted 30 mins and was a bit more difficult. I was called by the first store manager a couple days later to setup the final interview with the district manager. The whole process took 2 weeks from beginning to end.

    BISO Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sprint in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially found the position on the Sprint website. From there did not hear anything for about a month, out of no where I received an email asking if I could come in for face to face interview. This email did not seem to be real because it was a group email and the interviews were first come first serve. So I went to the interview was the first one to interview that day, waited about a week and then started the background check. The following week received the offer. Easy and smooth process.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions that were asked were not hard at all, They went over my resume and asked sales based questions. After that they asked me is I wanted to "jump in the pool", I guess this is how they ease you into a role play scenario. They told me to call them and act as if I was working for sprint and to help a customer who called in. Not too bad.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not get to negotiate anything, it was all firm which they tell you in the interview. I would say take the opportunity if given to you. Pay may not be as high as some would like, BUT the experience is golden and could lead you to places you never thought of.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sprint in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for Sprint was not stressful. Be prepared for behavioral questions and provide specific answers. Do not be general or respond with "I did that everyday." Provide a example and relate that example to the job for which you are interviewing. Most of all be optimistic.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Sprint in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to Nelson Staffing in San Francisco for an Area/District/retail store Managers position in San Francisco and Novato Ca. I went thru a prep session with the SF Nelson staffer and then on to an interview with the Sprint Area Manager at the retail store in San Fran. He seemed very hurried and disjointed. He was not organized at all and less than professional to say the least.
