    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    My interview was at like 1:30, I got to the office around 1:15, I wasn't see by the store manager until 2. She knew I was there at 1:15, but didn't bother to come out of her office to let me know that theres a delay, or something else. I thought that was unprofessional. However, the store manager was nice. I could tell she really enjoyed her job. They were in need of someone and with only like 3 questions asked, she hired me on the spot.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange.

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview process. After applying, you'll get a call from the supervisor from whichever store you're applying for within a week or two. Sooner if they're short staffed. You'll have your interview with either the supervisor of that store or the main manager. If hired, they'll call you later that day.

    Retail Management Trainee Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange (San Antonio, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview is rather easy. They want to know what your background is -- ex. the number of employees that you supervised -- the volume of the stores you've worked in -- why you left (or want to leave) your job --- name one thing you would like to change about your current or previous company -- what strengths do you have that would be a good fit for The Exchange. However, this is with a panel of 3 people from Human Resources and they are VERY "robotic" in their questioning and you get the sense that they don't know a thing about retail and that they don't care about their applicants. I say that they don't care about their applicants because this is the 2nd time in a 5 year period that, after the phone interview, they didn't bother to get back to me like they said they would. I expect at least an email saying that they are not interested. Also, with this position, they seem to be always changing the preferred requirements for the position. What I gathered is that this is a company (especially with the HR department, that they don't know what the hec they're doing and they are best to stay away from. WalMart would be a better alternative.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview -- "name one thing you would change about your current or previous employer". This was probably the most difficult question. They want to make sure that the thing you want to change about your employer isn't something that The Exchange does.   Answer Question

    I applied online(friday) for a store associate position at the Side Express.

I got a call that same day only a few hours after I applied. An interview was set up for monday morning at the BX. I dressed business casual and showed up 10 min early. I gave the interviewer a copy of my resume and I was asked about 4-5 questions about previous work(responsibilities), cashier experience, why I left my last job, my availability etc. I was offered the job on the spot!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange.

    Interview

    I had a one-on-one interview with the General Manager of the establishment. I honestly believe they intended to hire me before I came in for an interview. Yes, I was pretty confident. The General Manager proceeded to ask fundamental questions about my past work experiences, where I see myself in five years, and so on, in order to get an accurate depiction of who I am and if I am genuinely a good fit for the position. Definitely a positive experience overall. I was adequately prepared.

    Interview

    Interview scheduled by the local HR Rep. Was 10 minutes early for interview and the assistant manager who was supposed to interview me didn't even know that she had interviews scheduled for that day. She said "ok, we'll just wing it" and as we proceeded to the office the HR rep came walking in attended the interview also. This was my second interview for this position, I was one of the top 2 for the position previously and was not selected. All female staff at this location.

    Interview Questions
