    Retail Store Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Star interview method. Was very formal and not much leeway for improvisation from hiring managers. Not sure this always the best way to qualify / disqualify employees. Structured and well-organized though and timelines for decisions met.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AT&T in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online at Att.com and received a phone call two days later from a recruiter. The recruiter conducted a quick phone screen interview to gauge my interest and talk about my work history and education. After the phone interview I was told I would be contacted for a second interview if I was a good match. Received a call to schedule an in person interview with the central hiring manager within a couple of hours. The second interview was at a corporate store in the area and was about 45 minutes long. It was relaxed and straight forward, we talked about my previous work, education, and future career goals. I was told there would be a third interview if they decided to move forward with me. Within 3 hours I received an email scheduling the third interview with an area manager at a different local store on the same day. The third interview was similar in style as the second and much of the same was discussed. Due to my education and work history I was hired on the spot. Received a continent offer within 5 business days of my last interview. Whole process took about 2 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AT&T.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school's career website and was contacted by a recruiter via phone to urge me to also apply online and offered to answer any questions I had. I applied on their website and got a phone call again from the same recruiter saying he would like to interview me. We set up a time to do a FaceTime interview and I was informed that I had to attend a web session before our interview, which was very inconveniently timed and I could not attend it, so I had to listen to a pre recorded version. Pay very close attention to this web session. I even took notes on it but the recruiter asked very specific questions about what was on there and I had a hard time answering them. Recruiter during the interview was arrogant and rude, didn't seem interested in what I was saying, and would twist my answers when repeating them back to me in a way that made me sound awful. After the interview, I basically knew I didn't want this job or to be working for this company at all.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at AT&T in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied via an online post I saw on Indeed. I was contacted quickly by the hiring manager and within a week had an interview with him. It was extremely informative with an overview of the position and time for me to talk about how my skills map to the needs. About 2 weeks later I was interview by the hiring manager + 2 regional managers and about two and 1/2 weeks after that heard that they did not select me for the role. It was a very straight-forward process with clear communication throughout and a very thoughtful call to let me know the final decision.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult or unexpected. They wanted to know my experience testifying to legislative committees and how much I had worked on regulatory issues at the local level.   Answer Question
