Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2013.

Interview

Three interview process. First interview I was asked about my past jobs, what job I liked best and why, good customer service experiences, bad customer service experiences, etc. Filled out a paper asking to check off adjectives I felt described me. They asked about my style and where I shop, how I learn about upcoming fashion, what trends I've noticed this year and how they differ from the previous year. Then they showed me pieces of clothing and asked if I would pass or buy them in if I were a buyer. The second interview I was asked to pick from the racks 3 pieces I though would sell fast, 3 I thought would sell slowly and 3 I thought would not sell and explain my choices. The third interview was a run down of the position and after they offered me the job I was asked to sit and read a huge manual.

Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I went into the store and applied in person by filling out a quick form that asked for my previous employers, how I had heard about Buffalo exchange, etc. They called me about 3 days later, and asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I was informed that Buffalo Exchange's hiring process consisted of three in-person interviews, which seemed very excessive for a low-paying cashier position. In the first two interviews, I was asked a multitude of questions, many of which I could not see the need for considering the position. The third interview was basically asking if my availability had changed and a job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Phila, PA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview is set up into three phases, the third interview is actually a full work day which kinda of sucks. In all of the interviews they asked me a lot of questions about fashion and fashion trends. Most of the interviews are done with two managers, however before I left they were doing interviews with only one person interviewing.

    Negotiation

    None.
