Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Banana Republic.

Interview Details

I applied online and was initially contacted by a recruiter and went through a phone screen, set up with a GM interview, interviewed with the DM, and they made a decision from there. The process took about 2 1/2 weeks, just because I am already working full time and needed to find the time to meet with the GM and would miss phone calls from the recruiter.

Interview Questions
  • No difficult questions really, just make sure you prep yourself just like you would for any interview. The questions are pretty standard.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

I declined because the pay was only $0.50 difference from what I was making and the volume of the store was 3x as much as where I was already working. There was no room for negotiation.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Banana Republic in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was very personal and behavorial. What did I expect from the company, what did I have to offer, how would I handle situations, how would I balance workload and customer service while leading a team. I felt very much at ease and relaxed. The interviewer not only ensured that I was what the company needed but that I would be set up for sucess.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Banana Republic in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Started with an HR recruiter, she asked the standard interview questions. It took about an hour. She then told me about a few opportunities and set me up with the department manager.
    The Department Manager interviewed me, again about an hour, standard questions - why do you want the position, tell me about your experience, etc.
    Finally I interviewed with the District Manager who again, didn't ask anything too crazy.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't really negotiate, they asked what I made previously and offered me more than that.
