Sales Associate Interview

Application Details

I interviewed online - interviewed at hhgregg in November 2012.

Interview Details

Pretty straight forward interview. It was more like a conversation and less like an interview. Asked more life questions. Examples of work history and duties. Prioritizing job tasks. The store manager and Home theater manager were present. Most of the questions came from the store manager.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at hhgregg in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Quick interview, told the seven steps of the sell are the holly grail of hhgregg. Two week of selling on the floor while on salary. After two weeks,100 % commission, at that time warranties become the holy grail of hhgregg. Little help or structure as other employees will teach you the ends and outs of snaking customers into buying these overpriced service plans

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at hhgregg in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very casual, just wanted to know if what my experience looked like as far as sales. Not structured or interrogational at all. Now I understand why. They pretty much will hire anyone with minimal sales experience.
