    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Rainbow USA.

    Interview

    I was called 2 days prior to my interview to come in. On the day of my interview I arrived 10 minutes early to find out that the person who was supposed to interview me was on her lunch break for the next 30 mins. When I finally was interviewed it lasted all of 5 minutes, most likely because my interviewer had only been with the company for 3 weeks and barely knew about the company herself. the interview took place in between two racks of clothing on the store floor. I wasn't asked a single question just shown the ropes of the job to which the interviewer said, " seems simple enough right? The store manager will call you tomorrow for your hours and availability"
