    Part Time Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at RadioShack (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    short. very basic. I was called in for an interview at the store. The manager was on the phone alone in the store when I showed up. The manager was on a conference call the entire time. He asked a few questions when he could and when he learned my availability was open, asked to bring back ID and social card to send HR for background check. The background check itself took about a week.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RadioShack (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was taken into a backroom where the manager asked if I spoke Spanish, as I was a native I did. He asked me to do the interview in Spanish because he needed someone who definitely knew Spanish. I did what i had to do and spoke in Spanish. Overall, I was not offered the job because my experience did not match what he needed.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellingham, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RadioShack (Bellingham, WA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online. That is the first step they use to weed out potential employees. The system will take your answers to the questions and grade you against a number they are ideally looking for. This number is pretty much average, so if you want to do well, just act kind of "meh" about everything. As for the actual face-to-face interview, they will want you to show passion and enthusiasm, as well as a willingness to have a flexible schedule. You need to be very excited about selling phones, as well as eager to learn as much as possible about all the other random stuff that particular store will carry. The more energetic you are, the better your chances are.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to sell my interviewer his stapler. Just gave a basic sales pitch and he dug it. You should expect a very traditional interview. They give the managers a list of questions to read off, with associated follow up questions based off of how you answer. They literally try to take all need for thought away from the managers. It's a little sad. Just google "interview questions" and prepare accordingly.   Answer Question

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pottsville, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RadioShack (Pottsville, PA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Long delay between first and second interview. The second interview also felt like a token gesture, more as a show of authority on the part of the District Manager than anything.

    The first interview was of relatively solid quality, but that is subjective depending upon the Store Manager conducting it. Questions are run-of-the-mill, with no major curveballs. Biggest influencing factors are energy, enthusiasm, and appearance. No piercings, cover tattoos, show some enthusiasm for sales, and dress respectably. You'll be fine.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were particularly difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on the associate or assistant manager level.

    Easy Interview

    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

    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.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Annapolis, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RadioShack (Annapolis, MD) in December 2011.

    Interview

    They use the "cattle call" method so popular with multi-level management corporations these days. You may get interviewed by the Store Manager, a manager from another store, the Division Manager, or the DM's current toady of choice. The interview can be very job specific, or very vague, depending on who does it. The main goal is to see how much sh*t you will take.

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. They pay and schedule from a plan that has nothing to do with an individual's ability or requirements.

    Non-Existent. They let you know wha the pay was and that was that. Though I was surprised to find my base pay to be higher than discussed.
