Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at f.y.e..

Interview

Submitted application online, was called for in-person interview. Talked to store manager and assistant manager at the same time. Took about half hour overall once interview started. Interviewers were cordial, yet clearly bored. Mostly interested in seeing if I could convince customers to sign up for costly rewards program.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Tampa, FL) in April 2008.

    Interview

    First, I went to FYE's website and clicked "Careers". Then I filled in my information, and then they had a questionnaire that evaluates what kind of person you are. After two days I got a call from the manager asking me for an interview. I agreed, so I met him at the store for a one-on-one interview. The manager was very casual and friendly, which was an example of how casual the store was. He basically asked me questions about myself and my hobbies, and random questions like what type of movie I would be. The interview didn't feel like an interview. Instead it felt like a nice conversation. After I answered his questions, he hired me on the spot and that's how I got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Gurnee, IL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I turned in my application online and they called back about a week later. I went in wearing a slacks and a button-up. He explained to me that he needed more employees as most were quitting to go back to college. He asked pretty normal questions; most of them having to do with sales and past experiences. How you would persuade someone to buy an item, what makes you a good fit for f.y.e., what do you know about the company, etc. He explained how focused the company is on selling discount cards and how it's all about numbers so sell, sell, sell. After the interview he told me that he was interested in hiring me and that he would call me next week after figuring out the scheduling. He called me the next day and asked if I was available to start work the following Saturday.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Bloomington, MN) in November 2011.

    Interview

    They were looking for seasonal employees. I applied via internet, and got a call about a week later. I went into the store wearing casual but not trashy clothing. They sat me down and interviewed me. They asked very standard interview questions. Right after, they said I got the job, and I began work on Black Friday.
    I can't say I like their philosophy though. It's more about treating customers as consumers, and less about treating them as people. They focused on selling a bunch right away, instead of giving a good vibe that makes customers want to come back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Media, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    It was incredibly casual for me, I had a friend that worked at the store already and she put in a good word. The manager called me and asked me to come in the next day, basically he asked me about my music preferences, how I would help a customer, and my experience. They were desperate for sales associates (my friend was the only one there at the time) and I got the job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • He asked me about related artists or movies to artists or movies I was unfamiliar with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really was no negotiation. It was minimum wage, part-time, I needed a job and they needed an associate.

    Interview

    Quick and to the point. Slight awkward in the start of the process. Manager doing the interview made it more consistent to relate to product sold. Manager did not ask if I knew the history of the company.
