Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Santa Ana, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in November 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online through their website. Received a call about two days after. Scheduled an interview time and day. Brought a copy of my resume and original official documents (social security and drivers license). Interview itself was less than 15 minutes. Was asked some questions about what I think is the most important thing in retail for the customer (make them comfortable and provide a memorable experience). Talked about the minimum wage being innegociable. Got the job. Went home and got a call to schedule the training. Training was basically filling out forms and understanding policies and walking around the sales floor.

Interview Question – What do you do when you can not properly help a customer asking for your help?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation on the pay as it is a minimum wage position.
