Retail Store Manager Interview

Retail Store Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – What was my annual earnings expectations?   View Answer

Retail Store Manager Interview

Retail Store Manager
Chattanooga, TN

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Sprint in April 2010.

Interview Details – I was promoted from within the company from Assistant Manager position. The process was an interview in person with the DM and then Director. A Plan of Action was expected in printed powerpoint or similar format. Questions were centered around actions. What would you do if? questions. Also, lots of questions about what you have done already in your current position to increase sales in ....

Interview Question – No real difficult questions if you have been doing well in your current position. An interesting one was "Tell me about a time when you had to win". Again, be prepared to explain any misses in sales quota and be able to tell what you did specifically to impact sales.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very little opportunity to negotiate when being promoted from within. They have a range and the only way you get the high end of the range is if you are green in every metric and leading the area in sales. If you are hired from outside the company, there is much more opportunity to negotiate especially if you have proof of great sales and had a higher pay in your previous job.
