Retail Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at AT&T.

Interview Details

The process was quick, about a month in total. The area manager does first round interviews focused more on past experiences and situation questions. Second round interviews are done with a director. He will focus more on philosophy of your management and accountability strategies. They are looking for leaders. So have a lot of answers ready around that.

Interview Questions
  • What is your vision for the store? What areas do you see the store needs the most improvement in and how would you change it. What areas is the store doing well in? How do you hold teams accountable?   View Answer

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AT&T.

    Interview Details

    Started out with an online submission of my resume. Quickly following up with a phone screen interview. The typical behavioral questions were asked. They asked me to walk them through my resume. Tell me a time when you had to make a difficult decision, etc... There weren't any out of the ordinary questions.

    After the phone screen I got another phone interview, then an in person interview by a director of sales. All the questions were about managing performance and how you can help a team preform at higher levels.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at AT&T.

    Interview Details

    This company takes a long time to get you to the first interview and after that everything moves extremely quickly. It took almost 6 months for me to get my first interview. They're looking for really specific answers to questions, so avoid being vague and describe in detail a very specific situation.

    • Describe a time when you made a mistake and what you would do differently.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There really isn't much negotiating the salary. What you get offered is what you'll get.

Very profession work environment as well as the culture. Very difficult interviews but I was able to "wow" them with my work experiences and leadership abilities in which are the two main attributes they look for.
