Interview Process

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing.

Interview Details – Initial communication and interviews were fine. I enjoyed them all. However, they apparently don't listen to what you say to some extent because my stated goal is completely ignored. And, to be clear I was a completely qualified and a good little corporate store employee.

Interview Question – Nothing. It was very normal and pleasant.   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Dallas, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing in June 2011.

Interview Details – Sadly, I connected with my interviewer quickly and he got off topic very fast. All they want to see is you be energetic and fun, but willing to work hard. BE A PEOPLES PERSON. Otherwise forget it. Bring a not pad and writing tool. They liked that I asked questions and seemed very interested.

Negotiation Details – It was my first job so I took whatthey gave me, but I've seen it be based off college experience and age. raises do come pretty quick though so hang in there. i went up $2.50 after 2 years. About a dollar a year.

General Manager Interview

General Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing.

Interview Details – was the easiest job interview ever. this company is so desperate to hire anybody that is willing to work for such a low rate. i had no experience, yet they don't care. they just need somebody that is not too stupid. the interview was a joke, they wanted to see how little i would work for. they did not care about what i knew or how i managed

Interview Question – are you willing to start at $10 an hour?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – they offered me such a low pay rate that I just laughed. they are so desperate for anybody with a brain that all you have to do is negotiate and they will give you what you want. I was hired at $12.50 an hour as a manager (I was desperate for work, but i did not tell them that) and then I find out that the assistant was making $15 an hour. this company is a joke

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

Interviewed at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing

Interview Details – Interviewed by three other store managers, the district manager and A HR associate. The process took over one month and I was already an assistant manager for the company. The process was long and tedious. The other managers interviewing asked contradictory questions. Some of the interviews were held face to face while others were conducted over the phone.

Interview Question – Why would you like to work for Aaron Brothers? This was shocking because if the HR recruiter had bothered to read that I was internal candidate she would have known that I was already an employee. She was so embarrassed that she did not know how to end the interview once I had corrected her.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There were no negotiations. The pay rate was non-negotiable.

Negotiation Details – I was offered this position 2 previous times. The third time there was no negotiation - they already knew what I wanted and gave it to me.

Lead Sales Interview

Lead Sales
West Los Angeles, CA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing in August 2012.

Interview Details – I came in to a chaotic store. I had no experience with retail. I got the job and was hired on the spot after the ASM said I was "a cutie". He then pat me on the back and said you start at 9 and you'll move to 10.25. He was very obviously not very smart. He asked me several times while looking at my resume "So... is this the resume?".

Interview Question – Why are you trying to take the aptitude test? We dont do that, I'll do it for you.   Answer Question
