Interview Details – You get 3 interviews before you pass or fail: supervisor, then manager, then general manager of the store. The supervisor and manager are pretty much about business and what they want to hear is growing the business and how you will contribute to that. The general manager interview is more in depth and personal. He or she will ask about what YOU expect from your manager and position, which pretty much they want you to say something like "someone who will help me grow and develop and utilize my skills". Don't say anything dumb like "a cool manager". Then you're set.
Interview Question – They ask a lot of scenario questions but they are pretty simple such as "what would you do if you saw your coworker take someone's lunch or steal money from a register?" or "what you do and say when a customer is yelling at you and getting angry?". View Answer
