Merchandise Presentation Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Wichita, KS
Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Banana Republic.

Interview Details

Had two one-on-one interviews with different managers. The interviews seemed to go well, but I had to initiate contact every time I wanted to know something. They called me initially saying that they were interested in an interview, and three weeks passed before I called them saying that I would like to set something up. They told me after my interviews that it would be two weeks before they would make a decision. I called two and a half weeks later to ask about progress and they said the manager was out of town and I would be called back in two days. A full month after my interviews, I got an automated email saying that I wasn't chosen for the position. After two interviews, I expect at least a quick phone call. I was very disappointed with their timeliness, communication, and how impersonal everything was. I would not apply for another position with the company.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Banana Republic in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    GM wasn't very professional but I knew that the company was, researched position and decided to go for it. Used glassdoor to help me gage my salary and thank goodness I did! What they offered felt low so I turned the initial offer down. I negotiated and the GM was impatient about the whole thing but they offered me what I asked.

    Negotiation Details
    I was, and I leveraged my timing of year for that. It was late October, knew the store was heading into holiday short leadership and I stayed patient. Never give out your current salary, because the job you are looking into may have NOTHING to do with what you are currently looking at taking on.

    The man was really inforamtive and easy-going..I didnt feel nervous or pressure from any of the questions. The man was calling from the corporate office in ohio i believe.. The quesions were general:

    1. why do you want to work here?
    2. what are your strengths/weaknesses?
    3. How do you motivate people?
    4. Describe your last job....

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Banana Republic in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called me, acted very excited about my experience and my fit for the position. We discussed salary requirements. She stated they were slightly above the normal range but she thought that with the particular market we wre in, there shouldn't be an issue. Also discussed scheduling concerns. In summary, she agreed with everything I was asking for and then, called the next day to say they couldn't make any adjustments.
