    Ok.... First question, How many interviews did you have? If you had 3 interviews? And second were sent on the a drug test? If yes then you were pretty much hired. The only thing that could stop you from working at Fry's at this point would be if there was something wrong with your drug test. If your test was a week ago from today (Tuesday) then you should have gotten a call on Friday of last week to come in to start training on Monday which was yesterday. The only time Fry's will call you to let you know if you didn't get the job is if you failed your drug test, but sometimes you may not even get a call back for that either. Fry's doesn't call back if you didn't get a job there.

    Hiring managers are just regular managers, most likely they just forgot. Give them a poke.

    If it was just one interview then it was with a Customer Service Sup. Sometimes you might have a Department Manager do the first and second interview but most the time its 3 interviews. First with the CSS then with the DM and finally the ASM or SM.

    I do third interviews every week. If I tell you that we will call you back, then that means we are not going to hire you. I generally say, "we will review your application, and if we feel you meet our needs, we will give you a call back." I do this instead of straight up telling you no, because it avoids unneccesary confrontation. Everyone does this when interviewing.

    Someone's really got to be fucked up not to hire them.. So what are the reasons why you reject a potential employee?

    Yes, I remember you. We try not to hire associates that are avid gamers, as they tend to lead unhealthy lifestyles, both mentally and physically.

    Plus, you seemed unmotivated to be one of the Fry's family, you came off as kind of desperate. Next time, wear a shirt from somewhere other than Wal-Mart when you're applying for employment.

    The gamers I know have no focus in life other than winning at a video game. In the end nothing comes out of it.

    dajinn - consider it a blessing that Fried didn't call you back. That gives you the opportunity to interview elsewhere and find a better job.  
     
    Having been a part of the team that handled their risk management/insurance, unmotivated describes the entire Fry's management philosophy. Or perhaps....

    Actually I was the "guest" who posted that I do third interviews.....I haven't posted since, but its funny that someone posted an answer as if they were me. Suzukiman can vouch that I do third interviews every week....I am a cust. service manager.  
     
    As for who we don't let through...After the first interviews, 40 to 50 percent of the candidates get through. Once they get to me, they are decent candidates because there are two people vouching for them.  
     
    Here are the reasons we don't send them through.....schedule restrictions, unexplained gaps in work history, communication problems (hahaha, seems unlikely but yes), and I will even send them home if they are wearing shorts.

    Man, I must really have made a good impression, then. I got one interview with the dept manager and hired two days later. Am I the only one who did not have 2 or 3 interviews?

    Frys Piss Test: Fill container to middle line, hand to supervisor doing interview. Interviewer takes a swig, swishes it around a few times....if he spits, your not getting the job. If he swallows, you will get the job, and have an excellent chance at management. (helpful hint: Don't eat asparagus before piss test) :face-devil-grin:
