    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fry's Electronics (Downers Grove, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied at indeed.com and got an email from the supervisor telling me that they had reviewed my resume and wanted me to come in at a certain time. A lot of people were there, but we did not have a group interview. I was asked to fill out an in-store application and then talked to two separate department managers before talking to the assistant manager. They gave me the option to take a few days to think about the offer, but I took it instead.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fry's Electronics (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in store at the Phoenix location. I brought in my resume and asked to speak to a manager and he gave me an application. I heard back from them about 3 weeks after. they called me for an interview, and I went into the store but they told me that the managers were having a meeting that I had to wait an hour plus. so I went home, and I called an hour later and told them I had to leave(cause I wasn't going to wait that long to get interviewed, like why call if you knew you had a meeting?) so I called and told them it was unprofessional, and they excused themselves and told me to come in again for an interview. I came in the next day and talked to a department manager and she just asked me about my previous jobs and what I liked the most and least about them, very brief. then she said she was gonna get someone else to talk to me. Then the store manager spoke to me, I went into his office and he just asked me a little bit about myself and then told me to do a drug test, and that he had to check my background, and if that turned out fine, that he was going to call me back to get me into the schedule. (still waiting for a call back.)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fry's Electronics (San Jose, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, a few days later I got a call (on Saturday). I asked for the address, the person said that I can find the address on google and that I need to ask the manager when I come to the interview. When I came to the interview, I asked a security guard where I can find a manager. He answered me that I should go to the window number 53. In a window was empty. I was have paid attention after 10 minutes. A man (Merchandiser) came up to me and asked to fill out a form. After 10 minutes a woman from the Department of Audio-Video сame up to me and began to ask questions. No technical questions. Then she went to the first man, and they began to talk to each other. A man came up to me and he said that the position to which I was applied does not exist and he invited me to be a salesman. I just lost my time. I do not recommend Fry's Electronics.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fry's Electronics (San Jose, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was brief and informal, done by one of the store's managers, however, presentation (dress code) matters so don't come walking in wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

    Depending on your experience and which departments have open positions, you are allowed a little bit of freedom to choose where you want to work. The job is retail sales regardless. You will be dealing with customers.

    You have to complete a drug test before you can begin working. The paperwork is filled out for you and this is done off-site.
