    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fry's Electronics in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    For the San Diego location, they prefer to hire within the store/they only hire for this department if you already work for this store. They do this so that they can "test" you before they actually decide to have you transferred to the department.

    My first "interview" consisted of the MT (Management in Training) showing me a motherboard, pointing to different parts and asking me what they were. My "technical interview" was, "Here's a customer's computer. It has a bad motherboard. Here's the new motherboard. Swap it."

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Required to become A+ Certified within 60-Days of transferring to the department. A few months later, it was then required for all Service Technicians to be Apple Certified (I think they gave us 6 weeks). At that time, the tests fees were reimbursed (first attempt only).

    Now it is required that you are A+ AND Apple Certified BEFORE transferring to the department.
