Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pekin, IL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pekin, IL
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Advance America in July 2012.

Interview Details

I initially interviewed for a position as an assistant with the company. I had a telephone interview and then two in person interviews. At the second interview I was told that a decision would be made in the next two days and I would be contacted either way. I heard nothing for over a week. When I went into the center to make my payment I told the manager that I felt it was very unprofessional of the district manager for not calling. I received a call 2 days after that telling me they went with another candidate. Two to three weeks later I got another call from the district manager with an offer for a position as a center manager. She said that I was a leader and not a follower. I was then hired in as a store manager.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Advance America in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Online application process involved a questionaire. First in person interview done by direct supervisor at the store location. It went well and we hit it off. Second interview completed by DDO at the same location. The funny thing was that the DDO told me the details about the drug test and a start date but never actually offered me the job. Turns out she quit about a week after I started.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. Typical of most interviews.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Advance America in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application, did skills test and other personality tests, got a phone call next day for interview. Interviewer was very nice and very friendly. The office was clean and very well organiized. Very informal due to the fact that there were still people needing to do business but it worked out just fine.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    With a family there is no way I could work EVERY Saturday and maintain a job for a very long period of time. If they would consider rotating Saturdays, they would attract more desirable applicants but it seems they are unwilling to budge on this fact.
