Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Brookstone in September 2014.

Interview Details

I asked if they gave an application or if it was online then told me right on the spot sign up online then come Tuesday for an interview. I was really stressing searching up questions they might ask but when I got interview it was really chill. I think it was a weird interview because we both sat on a bed side my side he had a note pad writing down stuff when I answer questions he asked. Then he told me it was only seasonal and they he will call me and also said he had to interview like 14 more people. What I thought was really weird was like I said he sat on side instead in front of me so we basically had no eye contact in my opinion I felt like the manager was more nervous then I was. My friend also an interview with him first then me and he also thought it was weird that he didn't have any eye contact with us.
