Interview

Quick and to the point. Slight awkward in the start of the process. Manager doing the interview made it more consistent to relate to product sold. Manager did not ask if I knew the history of the company.

    Nothing. Don't work for this company, there are no raises and the store is driven by the drivers. They are a scam.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Media, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    It was incredibly casual for me, I had a friend that worked at the store already and she put in a good word. The manager called me and asked me to come in the next day, basically he asked me about my music preferences, how I would help a customer, and my experience. They were desperate for sales associates (my friend was the only one there at the time) and I got the job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • He asked me about related artists or movies to artists or movies I was unfamiliar with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really was no negotiation. It was minimum wage, part-time, I needed a job and they needed an associate.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at f.y.e. in August 2013.

    Interview

    I arrived 10 minutes early and was forced to walk around the store for 45 minutes waiting for the manager to interview me. She was very unprofessional and I don't think she really liked me, but she hired me anyway. The whole thing lasted maybe ten minutes, and she was civil the entire time. She even hired me after she saw that I was shaking in my boots level nervous, so that was a plus.

    Interview Questions

    • What's your favorite movie? Now sell it to me, someone who's never seen it before.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I got paid minimum wage, no negotiation

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at f.y.e. (DuBois, PA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple, basically the store I was applying for was desperate to get someone working since they could barely keep associates at any given time. I wasn't actually asked any questions, the manager just asked if I could show up on time and if I could handle the work.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Gurnee, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxed, while still maintaining a professional air. The management that interviewed me was amiable, relaxed, but still very professional. Many of the questions revolved around knowledge of the product, but also about getting to know me as both a professional being as well as me as a person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Gurnee, IL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I turned in my application online and they called back about a week later. I went in wearing a slacks and a button-up. He explained to me that he needed more employees as most were quitting to go back to college. He asked pretty normal questions; most of them having to do with sales and past experiences. How you would persuade someone to buy an item, what makes you a good fit for f.y.e., what do you know about the company, etc. He explained how focused the company is on selling discount cards and how it's all about numbers so sell, sell, sell. After the interview he told me that he was interested in hiring me and that he would call me next week after figuring out the scheduling. He called me the next day and asked if I was available to start work the following Saturday.
