    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Homestead, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Homestead, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Carter's in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had to travel to direct location of where each interviewer (Store Managers and District Manger) was based. They were 75 miles away from my hometown.
    First interview went great minus being nervous and pausing on some questions as listed on "unexpected questions". Was called for a second interview with District Manager (Temp, the regular one was on vacation).
    The second interviewer made a few off handed comments and questions, asking me if I had children or planned to have children then said "some women never have children, but love kids", which was bizarre and unprofessional in my opinion and in my spouse's opinion.
    Second interview seemed to be going well, they liked my answers...then they turned around and said I was unqualified for the job and they could only offer me a part-time job for maybe one or two days a week. I told them that was not possible because I needed a full-time job. They said I could perhaps work two jobs to make ends meet until I proved myself to the company. I politely declined, and will not accept an offer.
    Honestly felt like the Temp DM slapped me in the face, I was very insulted that despite the interview going well she coldly told me I was unqualified when the first woman said that I was.

    Reasons for Declining

    Only offered part-time and said to work "a second job" while working for them. That doesn't work in retail, and I need a full-time job.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Carter's in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Internally promoted from a Sales Associate position that I held for 6 months. I Initially interviewed with the Store Manager, she asked about things like leadership skills, the store's sales/numbers and performance, how I would handle certain situations(LP, coaching staff, etc.). Also asked about basic company policies and standards, why I think I should be a manager, and what I would bring to the team. I did an over-the-phone interview with the District manager, and she asked almost the exact same questions.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions were pretty general. there wasn't really anything too difficult. I also practiced the interview prompt so that might be why I wasn't phased by the questions asked.   Answer Question
