    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Kinston, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on March 26, 2015, and my interview was April 1, 2015. I was contacted the day after I applied.There were two managers that interviewed me. It was fairly simple. They tried to make me feel at ease. They weren't menacing at all. I left feeling challenged, but confident. They were extremely polite. Just make sure you answer the questions with as much detail as possible. All of the questions were in the "Tell me about a time..." format. They like for you to use STAR format when answering. Situation, Task, Action, Result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Knoxville, TN).

    Interview

    I had to do 2 computer tests. One had fake customers and situations and you had to choose what you would do based on the situation. The other was a personality test asking the questions with answers on the 5 point scale (strongly agree, disagree, ect). Then after passing those, I did an interview in person.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was led to the back of the store, the interview was the the Sales Manager and Area Supervisor. I was not really asked many questions, she just mainly told me what the operations consisted of, the pay and commission. First off, the store was family owned. Beware of these stores. She offered me 7.25 an hour for 30 hrs a week. Very low offer! Commissions were very low! Hardly any room for career growth unless you have worked there for 5+ years and that was only to be promoted from sales consultant to sales manager. The owner did not want me to work anywhere else beside her "company" or she would terminate. There was no mentoring program. All in all the experience was horrible! I hardly got a chance to speak and when I did she would cut me off to talk about other aspects of her "company" Said that I would not be able to sell any products or services for 3 weeks. STAY AWAY FROM US CELLULAR STORES THAT ARE FAMILY OWNED!!!!!! ONLY APPLY FOR THE CORPORATE STORES!!!!!!!!!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Ukiah, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter. A week in to it the I got an interview date. I went to the interview, which was quite fun. The sales manager was very clear and made the interview not so intimidating. The questions were specific ones, luckily I have worked in the cell phone retail business for a little over five years. I was able to give very specific scenarios, that was great. It's been a week since then, I spoke to the recruiter today and I just need to clear the background check. Hopefully I get an offer soon.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular in January 2015.

    Interview

    The process took about a month. The face to face portion of the interview was overkill, and a lot of questions verged on the ridiculous. It took over an hour. The guy interviewing me had on a dirty shirt, and looked disheveled. I have over 7 years experience as a bilingual rep., and I was not hired. Luckily, I didn't put all my eggs in one basket, and found a more lucrative gig. My advice is to avoid this company.

    Interview Questions

    • The "interviewer" asked me to explain a specific time when a computer system went down, and how I handled the customer. I explained what I usually do in general, but he required a specific customer at a specific time. All the questions wanted a single incident, and they seemed not to care at all about my overall philosophy concerning customer service and work ethic.   1 Answer
