    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at hhgregg in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied and got the call a few days later. About a month until I actually got in for a interview. I'm assuming this was intentionally due to the fact that the manager knew I was 18 and probably assumed I needed time for a drug test. I didn't. Skip forward to the first interview. This was my second retail job so when I began to talk about my extensive knowledge of electronics and prior sales experience they ended the interview and told me they would give me a call if they wanted to pursue a second interview. The second interview was with a sales manager that was very cool and we talked for about 5 minutes and spent the next hour walking around the store and talking about sales and what would be expected of me and scheduled my 2 weeks of payed training.

    Interview Questions
    • There are no hard questions. Just answer confidently and do not lie. If you don't have sales experience just explain how you would sell something to someone and you usually cant go wrong. It's really not hard.   Answer Question

    They told me i was part time and scheduled me full time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at hhgregg in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Very professional, but down to earth Managers. All 3 Managers made the situation more comfortable, which calmed the nervous and anxiety feeling of an Interview. I was asked very general customer service related question. This interview only took about 5 minutes, then I was asked to stay a while longer while the store manager printed on a drug screen appointment, while I waited the other managers talked to me like we already knew each other. I waited about a week and a half for the results of my background check and then was called to start orientation and training.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at hhgregg in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    HHGregg was a joke. I applied online and was called a few days later at 8 pm to come in the next day for an interview. I agreed and asked what time I should come in. I was told anytime between 2 and 4 were open so I asked for 3 and he said "great, I'll see you at 3." The next day I arrived at 2:50 and asked for the manager that was to interview me. I was told that he should be up in just a few minutes, he was in back conducting an interview. So I waited and talked to some employees about working there. All that I spoke to were unhappy and had multiple complaints, many similar in nature, but that is beside the point. After about 15 minutes went by, I was approached by another associate who asked me who I was there to see. After I told her, she told me that the manager wasn't there and that my interview wasn't until 4! I informed her that my interview was in fact for 3 o'clock and that I had already moved some things around in my day in order to be there for the 3 o'clock interview. She said that he should be back by 3:30 and asked if I could wait. I reluctantly agreed and continued to wait until 3:50 when he finally came back into the store laughing with a buddy he was apparently on lunch with. He was dressed sloppily and he brought me into the back break room to sit in some folding chairs for the interview. The interview was very basic in nature and very easy, however by that point I didn't even want the job. Overall, very unprofessional and poorly managed company from what I could see.
