    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Batteries Plus Bulbs.

    Interview

    Very casual. Basic questions about experience and days and hours available. Friendly. My biggest negative about the experience is that nobody called or wrote back to me to let me know the outcome of the interview. If you take the time to interview someone, you should at least have the professionalism to send them a thanks but no thanks letter.

    Store Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Batteries Plus Bulbs (Littleton, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, a week later I was contracted by the local franchisee's Administrative Assistant. I was told that the store I applied for already had a manager at that location, but they needed a manager at another location. She asked if I would be interested in a position at the other location, I stated to her that I would be so she set up an person interview with two District Managers at the store location I had applied for. The interview with the two District Managers was an average interview and they seems very interested in my past work history and level of knowledge and vast skill set. About a week later I received another call from the Administrative Assistant, she wanted to set up a second interview with the Franchisee CEO for the following week. The second interview was also an average interview and the CEO was very skilled and interesting to talk with. I was told that I'd be hiring from one of the District Manager. At the end of the week I sent the Administrative Assistant a thank you email thanking her for the opportunity to be interviewed, she sent a reply back the next day stating that I WAS still under consideration for the position. It's been two weeks since that contract and I haven't been contacted back again and no offer has been received.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Batteries Plus Bulbs (Mechanicsville, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had an 11:30am appointment, but the manager saw me around 12-ish. It wasn't stressful, but I was very hungry (had breakfast around 6:30 for some reason), and couldn't remember it all very much. I had a great time and the interviewer reminded me of this guy I knew in grade school. Anyway, everything was great.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Batteries Plus Bulbs (Schererville, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    They asked me a few questions regarding school and interests. It was smooth process which didn't prevent me from getting the job very soon after. Pretty much I got the job very soon and didn't have to work much on preparing a speech or cheat sheet that I had to study. I just had a conversation with the manager as well as the owner of the store and I got the job afterwards. I'd suggest you don't be worried or nervous, just be yourself.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Batteries Plus Bulbs (Greenville, SC).

    Interview

    This was a little less than what you would normally expect out of an interview but pretty basic. Manager is young and far from being mature and ready for this position. If he thinks you will be friends and have fun then youre good, probably not gonna get hired if he doesn't like the way you look or if he thinks you are more talented in anyway.
