Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Gordmans.

Interview Details – I interviewed with Jason Baker, who has now moved on in company and is no longer at the Mankato store. My interview was great, I had filed out a rather long questionnaire prior to my meeting that was entered into the computer. Jason was excited to show me my bar graph and what my scores meant. He very easy to talk to and very professional.

Interview Question – He asked the obvious interview questions like "What is your biggest flaw" things like that. One question that was different was "Tell me about your closet".   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Gordmans in August 2009.

Interview Details – Applied in-store. In addition to the standard application, the Kenexa Retail Selector and Predictive Index personality tests were administered. The application took me about 50 minutes start-to-finish. Recieved a call back approximately a week later, asking for me to call back to set up an interview. Interview was scheduled in the morning. I arrived and was welcomed by the Store Manager after about 3 minutes. We 'walked and talked' and ended up in one spot in the store. The interview was more of a conversation than a question-answer session, and I appreciated this. Since I had prior retail experience, we ended up trading stories and funny personal work anecdotes. Overall, a very inviting and friendly experience and it turned out well-I was offered a position on the spot.

Interview Question – Why are you choosing to apply with us when you have another job already?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was pretty much non-existent, since I was not applying for an exempt, Management position. I was able to start at the top of the payscale due to my prior retail experience and was told that I probably could expect a raise within one year.

Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gordmans in September 2011.

Interview Details – I posted my resume online and was contacted by the store manager. We met for almost two hours just having a nice conversation and getting a feel for one another. He then set me up to visit another store manager. This meeting was about an hour long and very similar to the first. I then had a phone interview with a district manager and finally took the Kenexa. I then waited about a week to receive an offer.

Interview Question – If you had to chose between one employee who is exceptional or two who are mediocre which would you chose.   View Answer
