Selling Specialist Interview

Selling Specialist
Lake Grove, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques in June 2014.

Interview Details – I went to a solstice store and inquired about open positions. I was told they were hiring and to apply online using the career section of their website. I applied in mid-May and heard back at the end of the month. I was called by the manager and we scheduled an interview for a few days later. My interview was about 30 to 45 minutes. We talked about fashion and chit chatted about my upcoming vacation and other things unrelated to the job. She only asked my 3 direct questions about the job itself. The first was if I had any retail experience and if I had to explain my previous position. The second was how I would handle a customer who I thought was trying/attempting to steal. And the third was why I wanted to work at Solstice. All of the questions were easy and straight forward. Just being honest will get you the job. I was told at the end of the interview that the district manager may want a phone interview. However, if she did not, I would be hired. About 4 days later I was called by my store's manager and was told I was the job. The overall process was good but it did seem to take a bit of time.

Negotiation Details – On my application I stated that I would be willing to work for $8/hr. During the interview I was told that the base pay started at $10.50/hr so I was more than willing to accept that.

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was very limited. The company has a range and the store manager picks based off your location and experience.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques in July 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process is very long when trying to get a key holder position, because of the background check. Takes about two weeks. Other wise they ask rather basic questions that you hear at most interviews. You just have to be a confident, out going, go getter kind of person during the interview.

Negotiation Details – Very simple
