Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Barnes & Noble in October 2011.

Interview

I interviewed with one other candidate and we took turns answering questions.

Examples of questions: "Describe a situation when you had to overcome a challenge or confront a frustrating situation." "Explain your customer service ideas and/or methods. How do you sell?" "Why did you apply for a position at B&N, why do you want to work here?" "Describe skills you have from other jobs or experiences you think would be useful or beneficial to a position at B&N."

Interview Questions

  • What is your approach to customer service?   1 Answer

Negotiation

There was little room to negotiate wage because starting wages for seasonal positions were set by the company.
Negotiating availability and desired amount of hours came with ease.
