Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Barnes & Noble (New York, NY) in November 2013.

Interview

Lots of behavioral questions. More in depth than other retail interviews. Charisma really counts here. Interview lasted a total of 30 minutes. This is a great seasonal job for students and people looking to make extra money around the holidays, but growth within the company is difficult.

    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."

    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.
