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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at f.y.e. in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at f.y.e. in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomington, MN
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at f.y.e. in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    They were looking for seasonal employees. I applied via internet, and got a call about a week later. I went into the store wearing casual but not trashy clothing. They sat me down and interviewed me. They asked very standard interview questions. Right after, they said I got the job, and I began work on Black Friday.
    I can't say I like their philosophy though. It's more about treating customers as consumers, and less about treating them as people. They focused on selling a bunch right away, instead of giving a good vibe that makes customers want to come back.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at f.y.e. in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    First, I went to FYE's website and clicked "Careers". Then I filled in my information, and then they had a questionnaire that evaluates what kind of person you are. After two days I got a call from the manager asking me for an interview. I agreed, so I met him at the store for a one-on-one interview. The manager was very casual and friendly, which was an example of how casual the store was. He basically asked me questions about myself and my hobbies, and random questions like what type of movie I would be. The interview didn't feel like an interview. Instead it felt like a nice conversation. After I answered his questions, he hired me on the spot and that's how I got the job.
