Cashier/Sales Associate Interview

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Goodwill.

Interview Details

I had to submit a resume, and answer some questions online. I then got a call asking me to come in for an interview. At the store before the interview I had to fill out a sheet that had my availability to work on it. Then they took me to a back room where the interviewer asked questions about when and for how long I would be able to work, why I wanted the job, etc.

Interview Questions
  • They asked a lot of questions about why I put down the availability that I did, which was sometimes kind of hard to answer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goodwill in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    There were three interviews. It depended on which job you were applying for. I had applied for the Sales Associate Cashier. First they have you in a large group discussing the job and what is expected. After that, you go and test on your cash counting abilities, and then go in and answer questions from a panel interview. At the end you are asked to role play in the position you are applying for. It was fun. The panel was relaxed which relaxed the room. The questions from the panel were easy to answer - such as would you work at this branch.....I answered yes to all.

    Very friendly interiewer. Read questions from a packet, so I imagine that the questions everywhere should be very similar. We discussed my available hours and sales experience.

    Interview Details

    Met with the store manager and discussed my skills. It was all very casual and basic. However, that was a few years ago. I'm told that the hiring and interview process is much more strenuous now, and much more involved.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing difficult about the interview, and there were no unexpected questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The starting pay was less than what I was making in my last retail job, but I accepted, principally because the location was convenient, and the schedule flexibility was very good.
