Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Bealls.
Interview Details – There is only one interview which is a pretty easy process. You will either be called or receive an email about the interview. I have been hired at the interview twice. Pretty simple, just be professional and honest, show up on time, and prepare to answer questions about how you would go beyond to help customers and times where you exceeded expectations. Also some personality questions just sell your good attributes.
Interview Question – Questions are basic interview questions. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
Merchandise Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Bealls in March 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online for Merchandise Manager with a resume of merchandising experience. Received a call from a Store Manager for an in store area manager interview. Interviewed over the phone, then agreed to in person interview. Then I looked up the position. It was significantly below my experience (basically a Department Manager) for a store location I would not have applied for. Here is my advice to your hiring people- don't demean your applicants. If you want to reject me for the position I applied for, I can take it. But please don't assume I am so desperate for you to just plug me into any low level position you have available. Not only did I cancel the interview, but I will never shop at your store again. So In this case, that approach is not working out for you.
Supervisor Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)

Sales Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bealls in May 2013.
Interview Details – making sure we have basic talking skills and not too shy about talking to people or selling the products in the office. they did it as a group interview asking the regular interview questions of teamwork and past experience with work. Cashiering was a big point and making sure you have money handling/retail experience.
Interview Question – to sell one of the things in the manager's office like sunglasses or a stapler to another person getting interviewed. couldn't repeat how the other person sold the item had to be fresh and unique it was kinda difficult for the last people to sell things and not stutter/come up with fresh ideas.
