Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

Interviewed at Bare Escentuals

Interview Details – There were two interviews. One consisted of an in-store interview with the Store Manager. I had to bring a model and conduct a makeup application on her to demonstrate my basic makeup application skills as well as selling skills. Once that was completed I immediately had an interview with the Store Manager in which I was asked basic questions such as why I want to work for the brand. I had to describe instances of where I've provided outstanding customer service and to describe a time where I had a challenge at work and overcame it.

The second and final interview was with the District Manager and I was asked what traits and skills I believed a good manager possessed. I was again asked to tell of a time I was faced with a challenge at work and how I went about solving the problem.

Interview Question – How would you go about coaching an employee who always makes excuses and seems to not care about their job?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They didn't want to give me the pay I asked for an it took weeks of me insisting I would be a valuable asset to the company. I found this silly since I was making a higher wage at my previous employer.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Bare Escentuals in August 2010.

Interview Details – Got a phone call for an interview within 2 days of applying online.
Met with the new store manager,( at that time-new store opening), the next day.
She went over my resume and asked a few questions on how I would handle certain situations.
Discussed availability- which you must be open 100%.
