    I applied online – interviewed at hhgregg in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straight forward interview. It was more like a conversation and less like an interview. Asked more life questions. Examples of work history and duties. Prioritizing job tasks. The store manager and Home theater manager were present. Most of the questions came from the store manager.

    Electronics Sales Associate Interview

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

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at hhgregg.

    Interview Details

    You will go through at least 2 interviews that will consist of at least one with the Sales Manager and one with the Store Manager. The number 1 thing they are looking for is someone with retail sales experience. If you are very easy to talk to and open then that helps to show them that you can talk to anyone to help you sell products.

    Interview Questions
    • The question they have a tendency to drill people on is why did you leave your last position, especially if was from another electronics retailer. They are looking to see if you got fired or not because they are very careful about making sure that they don't bring any trouble makers onto the sales floor.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There really isn't a negotiation phase to this type of job because it is commission. They are pretty open to what their employee need especially when they are strong sales people

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Appleton, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Appleton, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at hhgregg in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Found an on-line ad that hhgregg was hiring for new stores in the area, so I applied on-line for manager-trainee program. My phone rang within one hour. The manager-in-training position was already taken, so I was offered to interview for a sales position. At the interview, I told them about my previous work experiences (3 jobs in almost 25 years, but no sales experience) and that I was recntly laid off, and they basically offered me the job on the spot with "Do you think you'd rather be an appliance or electronics sales associate?"

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at hhgregg in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    very long took about 4 weeks from start to finish and you need to keep up with them they forget to check on it. The drug test is pretty fast but if you dont call them to remind them to check there email you may never hear from them again, the background test takes a few weeks per county and again you have to call them to remind them your being hired pretty aggravating

    Interview Details

    it was an online application, they called me within a week, my interview was for an M.I.T. position but I had to complete 50,00 dollars in sales on the a/v side and 50,000 dollars on the appliance side before I could start the program for M.I.T. and after I hit those numbers in 2 months I decided sales were a better fit for me at the time

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairview Heights, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairview Heights, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at hhgregg in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I originally interviewed for a warehouse position, but I believe I fell into the position seeing as how I was being interviewed by the electronics sales manager. He had just received a call from a person they offered the position to and they turned the offer down. The pay structure was explained, but you really don't feel the brunt of it until after Grand Opening or the Holidays like my store was going through. I felt as though I might have just been a warm body to fill the spot considering I had never had sales experience before. You can develop sales skills, but just make sure you don't slip into draw too much!

    Negotiation Details
    It's the same whether you have sales experience or not. Straight commission after a certain time period. Make sure you clarify what the expectations are; maybe even in writing.
