Customer Service Merchandiser Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at hhgregg.

Interview Details

The hiring process will take, at a minimum, 2 weeks. No CMS that I have seen have been hired faster than within a 2 week period. Corporate will undoubtedly need various taxation and other legal documents completed many more times than just once. Background screenings take the majority of the two weeks, and the drug test has same-day results. If the background check gets back to the store in an efficient manner, then all you have to do is complete the company's forms a few times over, over the span of a few days, to be legally allowed to work.

Interview Questions
  • Interviewing experience was very minimal, leading me to expect that the job wouldn't entail as much responsibility as they say. Unfortunately, you will be responsible for MUCH more than expected, and poorly compensated for your skills.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at hhgregg in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    very long took about 4 weeks from start to finish and you need to keep up with them they forget to check on it. The drug test is pretty fast but if you dont call them to remind them to check there email you may never hear from them again, the background test takes a few weeks per county and again you have to call them to remind them your being hired pretty aggravating

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at hhgregg in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Very professional, but down to earth Managers. All 3 Managers made the situation more comfortable, which calmed the nervous and anxiety feeling of an Interview. I was asked very general customer service related question. This interview only took about 5 minutes, then I was asked to stay a while longer while the store manager printed on a drug screen appointment, while I waited the other managers talked to me like we already knew each other. I waited about a week and a half for the results of my background check and then was called to start orientation and training.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at hhgregg in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I origionally found out about the job by mistake. I applied for an ad on Craigslist for a CSR which turned out to be for a recruiter for HHGREGG looking for a Customer Service Merchandiser. I had to meet up with the recruiter at a local agency for the urine test and background test and go over a basic interview. After the basic interview I went to HHGREGG in Kissimmee and met with the HR associate and basicly signed papers and set up my schedule on when I would start work and how much I would be paid and how frequently.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at hhgregg in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a short phone interview first, which was easy, then she asked if I could come in for a follow up two days later. The 1 on 1 interview was a pretty easy interview for me, but the general manager that interviewed me was a really cool lady. Our interview was more of a conversation than a Q&A, which is what I excel at. We talked for almost 30 minutes and then she offered me the job on the spot. It was as painless an interview as they come, honestly.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at hhgregg in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job at the Hhgregg as a Customer Service Merchandiser at the end of February. I got a call on March 7, 2011 with an interview offer. The interview was 3 days later with the operations lead. We didn't go into an office or anything. It was "quick and on the fly" as he said it would be upon greeting me. We went to a corner (a counter top by the vacuum section). We discussed my availability, education information and previous experience. Then scripted (standard) situational questions are asked from a printout he had. Then an employee comes up and interrupts relaying the man a message, he excuses himself to go take a phone call so I'm just standing there for a few. He comes back and continues with the questions. Then he delves into the description of the job and asks if it was what I intended. At the end he gives me room for questions and tells me they have a few more interview to do so I'd hear from him by the middle of the next week. I didn't hear from him so I called the next week (today) and was told that if I was hired that I would've been contacted by now.
