    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Advance America (Pensacola, FL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Unusual questions. One that I recall was I was asked to "sell" (some type of item that I was handed) to the interviewing manager. Not a good interview question, because how am I to sell something I do not know anything about or believe is better than a competitor's in some fashion?

    Interview Questions

    • To "sell" a widget of the interviewer's choice to the interviewer.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Advance America (Pekin, IL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Advance America (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2010.

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

    Starting pay between $10-11 per hour. She wanted to give me $10/hour but when I reminded her that during the interview she said she would have me be a manager if she had a spot open she agreed to start me at $11/hour.
