District Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
No Offer

Interview

The hiring process is so rigid. I have experience doing what it is they are looking for, but for some reason, they denied my application to further the process. I would not recommend this Company for furthering their career. Terrible!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at RadioShack in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview started off with a very energized member of Human Resources going over the details of the company with me. Financials, Job expectations, the role and job description. Then a few situational based questions along with questions about what my pet peeves are, when I approach a store what am I looking for or at and etc. The HR rep did a LOT of talking and according to her its done in order to "pre-answer" any questions that I might have.

    Interview Questions

    • There werent any difficult or unexpected questions that I was asked. Be ready to discuss a little bit about P&L statements and how to tackle a store thats underperforming, what might you do to pick it back up.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at RadioShack (Dayton, TN) in April 2008.

    Interview

    I had to be in good standing with the company in order to be promoted to manager. I also had to have at least an average of $75 an hour sales history for the previous month. I had to complete an application and send in my resume like I had never worked for the company before, even though at the time I was the Assistant Manager of the store. The company normally does not promote to Manager in the same store that you are Assistant Manager, but my store is in a remote location so no other Manager at the time wanted the drive time.

    Negotiation

    Run! There were no negotiations at all. I actually found out what the Manager salary was when I received my first Manager pay check. After 2 years as Manager, I have found out that I am also the lowest paid Manager in our 17 store district.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at RadioShack in September 2010.

    Interview

    This is not a cookie cutter interview process. You'll have to take a 45 minute behavioral analysis survey that will give the interviewer a 14 page "glimpse" into what makes you tick. The report is astonishingly accurate and revealing (I used these reports after I was hired regularly during my own interviews). The focus of the interview was on the "Assets and Liabilities" portion of the print off. During this professional grill session, you'll be placed on the "hot seat" where your resume and assets and liabilities will be dissected. Everything between these two materials will be questioned at great length. I sat in on a few of these interviews after the fact in an observer role and was extremely uncomfortable just being in the presence of the interogation. I recommend walking through your "life on paper" before going in and being able to answer the "why" and "what were you thinking" style questions to each peice of information you have listed.

    Negotiation

    Management asked what my best W2 looked like, I told them, and they matched.
