    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marshalls (Auburn, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, then like 2 weeks later they called me in for an interview. They were interviewing a lot of people, and the manager took me back, later than my time I was supposed to be taken back. She asked me typical questions, like "why marshalls" or "what does customer service mean to you". The manager looked uninterested the whole time, which kind of made me unconfident. She then sent me on my way, telling me if I'm called by the next Friday, they picked me to work there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marshalls (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The Marshalls I applied for was one of the largest locations in America. The manager interviewed applicants in groups. There were around ten of us. It was pretty difficult to stand out among the large crowd. They had first given us an application with interview questions and we were to answer them. After handing in the application, the manager called all of us into a room and she would ask questions and every applicant would get a turn to reply.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marshalls in February 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly easy interview but when I went in to interview they did not even know who was supposed to interview me. I waited for around 10 minutes until I was finally called back for a interview which took 5 minutes and then told I would hear back. They called me a few days later and when I called back no one knew who called me.

    Full Time Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Marshalls (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Completed a short application online on Monday got called for on Sunday for an interview on Monday. Went to Marshalls the next day filled out the complete job application at the store. They told me to wait outside till i was called. Took about more than 1 hr. to get called in. I notified them that i was still here for my interview about 6 times until they finally assisted me. They interviewer took so long because she decided to attend the cash register (there was not a big line of shoppers either only like 2 people in line.) Finally went to get my interview and they made me wait outside the door for about 5 min. Finally went inside to take my actual interview after about 1hr and 30 min. The lady asked me why do you want to work at marshalls then i gave her a answer. Then she asked me about my previous jobs or volunteer work then i gave her my answer and it was a good answer. After i answered she was like oh well the position is already full (since a long time ago.) Have a nice day. The interview wasn't even 5 min. until she basically told me to leave. I thought to myself why would you make me wait more than an hour or even call me in for an interview if the position had been full since who knows when and then you make me wait so long for an "interview" that was no longer than 5 min. I was so furious. And i was dressed appropriately and everything.
