Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at RadioShack (New York, NY).

Interview

Walk in.

Made friends with one of the employees. After coming in for a while shopping for home theater products engaged in a conversation about how awesome radioshack was and in turn was asked if I wanted to work there. After careful consideration a said yes and asked what I needed to do. I was told to apply on Indeed in addition to the radioshack website because the manager received those applications directly. Also, be sure to know the store number for the location in which you wish to apply for.

The next day I had the employee/friend unofficially introduce me to the manager and mentioned that I was interested in working there.

I was followed up by receiving a phone call the next day and went in for a formal interview the day after that.

Before the week was over, I had a job offer. =)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at RadioShack (Monroe, LA).

    Interview

    The process is to apply on line. Follow up by applicant to the store manager of interest would be a good move by applicant to show interest and set up a job interview. Otherwise the next move is generally done by store and district manager by online review of applicant and phone interviews to
    determine and setup personal interviews at the various stores that need employees.
    Expect 2 Interviews. The First level interview will be with the store manager or a senior store manager from another store. The second interview will usually be with a district manager by phone.
    The process usually takes about an hour.
    Show strong conversation skills, be passionate in your presentation, show strong interest for the position applying for, explain caring for customers and the company's goals, and exhibit a great attitude will help to get hired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at RadioShack (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Quick process, just have to show them you can sell. Being quiet is okay as long as when you speak , you speak of relevant things. you might get an interview with someone who has been there for a really long time and they take the job a little too serious, but thats ok because the next part of the interview will probably be with someone who is much nicer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at RadioShack.

    Interview

    Asked what was required for an associate to move up to the ASM position. Was informed that I needed to fill out some paperwork, bring my numbers up, and complete the ASM training modules on the company's site. Main reason for the application was due to the lack of a decent base pay at the entry pay

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    asked if there was an issue with the fact that I only had about 4 months of employment. There was none. I went unopposed during my application just for bidding for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RadioShack in June 2012.

    Interview

    Most often, a two step interview process. Either with an assistant manager then store manager or store manager then district manager. Store managers are usually trying to get to know you as far as what you are looking for in a job/ what you are hoping to accomplish within the company.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at RadioShack in January 2012.

    Interview

    Online screening and informal print off the manager pulled from the internal system. Asked sales based and personality questions more than anything else. Unfortunately, people who are skilled or knowledgeable about the products at radioshack aren't usually natural born salesmen. Because of the overall lack of need for many of their products, they switched to selling cell phone plans and other overpriced accessories. Most people are unaware of this so they go in for thermal paste to fix their xbox, or a shortwave radio and walk out after seeing an outrageous price point and some kid who has no idea what anything in the store is other than the new android phone.
