    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at hhgregg (Towson, MD (US)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you expect to get out of this?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. THis is strictly commission or you make minimum wage or minimum wage x 1.5 if you go over 40 hours and they will make you pay back that draw.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at hhgregg.

    Interview

    After scheduling the interview I got on this website to read reviews and interview and was very discouraged. My experience was just as it is described in the reviews. From the second I walked in the store I could tell there was a lack of management. Employees were cutting up and congregating near front of store, yet no one made an attempt to greet me (assuming they thought I was a customer) i told someone why I was there and they pretty much said cool and did not make an attempt to contact manager to alert him I was there. Manager finally comes out and tells me to wait for him. While I'm waiting an employee asked me if I needed help. By this point it is well past the scheduled interview time. Manager finally gets me and we do the interview in the middle of the furniture sales floor. Yes thats right, sitting on couches doing an interview while customers and employees are walking by and around us talking. Ridiculous and awkward. Standard interview. Young inexperienced sales manager that obviously had no proper training or experience in interviews. The whole thing was a joke and very shady.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about experience and morals. Standard interview questions asked straight from a written script. Only difficult thing was interviewer pretty much asked the same question twice and I was forced to come up with a different answer to the same question.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Company seems very sketchy. High turnover rate.

    Interview

    Very long process. Submit application and take assessment. You will then be called in for an initial interview. If they are interested, they will submit a background check. When that finally comes back, they will call you to take a drug test and possibly interview you again.If drug test comes back negative, they will call and offer you a position and a start date. If you are going into management, negotiate your starting pay.

    Interview Questions

    • If you are dealing with a customer and the only way to take care of and satisfy them is to break a company policy, what would you do?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They tried to low ball me. I stood my ground and asked for more. They actually came back with an offer higher than I asked for.
