Co Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Express in July 2015.

Interview

I applied online, and two days later I received a phone call asking me to come in for an interview. During the call I asked "What position am I being considered for?". The manager replied "we can discuss in more detail during your interview". I asked that question because the Co manager and sales associate applications are the same, and there's no way to put your preference. When I get to the interview she ask what I was looking for, and of course I explained. She looked shock and said "oh, those positions are filled". I took off from work to be interviewed for a sales associate position? I work at a very high end department store in management...what would make her think that I want to be a sales associate. I'm truly lost, what make anyone think she works at a high end department for two years in management, that she'll be a great sales associate? Overall waste of an evening, for a 1 minute interview...and now I'm stuck in traffic.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Express (Detroit, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Met with the District Manager who was dressed in jeans and a cool top. If you interview, you don't have to go all out in a suit. Interview was set up very casually to encourage more conversation than too many traditional interview questions, however you should be able to talk freely about what you do to create sales, merchandising, training, driving teamwork, and communication- no b.s. If you are not a hands on manager, this job would not be for you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Express (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    A bit confusing since their online application utilizes the same form for both sales associates & management. Was invited for an interview, was not until the very end I was informed I was being considered for a sales position not a management position. Very sketchy in regards to hourly pay, arrived 10 minutes early only to be asked to wait around for a few minutes-- turning into an entire hour.

    Interview

    Company likes to hire from within. Even to get to a management position you have to work your way up. For part time associates, take the time to look the part. I'm not interested in seeing your jeans and tshirt that don't fit.
