Negotiation Details – They offered me an assistant manager position first. Paying me $14. I stated that's not what I interviewed for. I have a degree and I make more at my current job. They called back the next day and gave me the store manager position.

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.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at 7-Eleven in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for a position in Dallas TX about 7 days ago online. When the recruiter received the application we had set up a phone interview over the phone. When the phone interview took place, we discussed managerial competencies, situations, and work experience.

From that step he had set up an interview with the market manager which was about 5 days later. That interview consisted of managerial strengths and competencies also. We discussed a daily life in 7 eleven stores and the training expectations which where broken down by category.

Interview Question – Difficult questions only come with no experience in the retail world. Every question has it's own answers, because it's happened to all of us as leaders to clerks.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Get the research of the salary before negotiating. Plus it's all in the experience that a manager or a clerk does have.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Orlando, FL

The process took a day - interviewed at 7-Eleven in January 2011.

Interview Details – Intial Interview went great, everything in my opinion was on point, recruiter was very honest and straight forward in his approach to everything. HIs questions were very up front and to the point. He asked the normal questions to include What is a strength, When do you feel that you were not satisified with your performance at a previous job and other questions along that line. Keep following up to move yourself through the process though or else I believe you will get bogged down. I am sure these recruiters are all over worked and under staffed.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to help implement a new policy or a change.   Answer Question
