Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Amherst, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at 7-Eleven in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applies online and got a call back a couple of weeks later. I went in and the manager said that he forgot he had a conference call and wanted me to come back the next day. So I went back and the interview was more like a conversation with him asking about my availability, why I left my previous jobs, customer service and other questions relating to the job. He then proceeds to tell me that he was busy with training and doing other interviews and that he wouldn't have an opening in a month.

Interview Question – None was more like a conversation then anything   Answer Question

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied through other source and the process took 6 days - interviewed at 7-Eleven in May 2014.

Interview Details – I visited a 7-Eleven booth at a virtual job fair through the Lee Hecht Harrison career service. I didn't actually apply - I just perused the information at their booth. About a week later, I received a phone call from a recruiter asking if I'd be interested in applying. Having nothing to lose, I agreed and we set up a time for a phone interview.

The phone interview was definitely just a screening. He asked a lot of questions about my background. He was interested in the volume of revenue I had been responsible for as well as the number of direct reports I was used to having. He asked a few situational questions, most of which would be pretty simple for someone with leadership experience. After the phone interview, he told me immediately that he was going to set me up for a final interview with a Market Manager. He didn't give me vague answers or tell me that I could hear from them in 2-4 weeks. He then sent me an email with an actual application and an aptitude test.

The aptitude test was pretty standard. The typical agree/disagree choices, some simple math and problem solving. It took around 45 minutes to complete and was not timed. I took it the same day as my phone interview.

2 days later, which was yesterday, I had my interview with the Market Manager. It was one of the best interviews I've been a part of. He had my resume printed and had highlighted specific things he wanted to talk about. He had formulated his own questions specifically for me rather than using a generic interview packet, he was courteous and professional, but also kept the interview fun and lighthearted. There were times our discussion would go on a tangent, ending with one of sharing a humorous experience with the other and sharing a laugh. I really felt like my personality and social skills were tested. It wasn't only about having the answers to the questions, it was about effective communication skills and and the ability to interact with someone.

Some of the questions he asked:
How would you describe your management style?
How do you mediate conflict between employees?
How can you use the P&L effectively?
Tell me about the best manager you've ever had? What made them great?

Interview Question – This is probably cliche, but he asked about my greatest strength and my greatest weakness.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I asked for $45k based on what I read on this site. They counter-offered $47,500 plus bonuses. I graciously accepted.

My interview was on a Friday, he said to expect my formal offer in my email Monday, so I guess it isn't set in stone just yet. But he did offer me a job and salary and I informally accepted.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at 7-Eleven.
