Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Saginaw, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Catherines in September 2013.

Interview Details – I went into the store and asked the store manager if they were hiring. She said they could use another person and asked me about myself. I told her I am a full-time college student and part time cashier at a fast food place. She took my name and told me to fill out the app online. She got the app, called me a couple days later, and told me to come in for an interview. She asked about my availability and why I'd like to work for Catherines. That was it.

Interview Question – There was no difficult question. It was the easiest interview I have ever had.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. It's minimum wage for sales associates.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Catherines in May 2013.

Interview Details – Since Catherines at the time did not accept online applications, I printed one off and went into the store. I handed it to the assistant manager, since the manager was off that day. I got a phone call about 4 days later to come in for an interview the following Thursday. The interview was extremely quick and basic - "why do you want to work here?" "what is your availability like?" I was only asked 3 questions.

Interview Question – How would you describe your sense of style?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation - I was called 3 days later, offered the job at minimum wage.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

Interviewed at Catherines

Interview Details – Relatively simple. I submitted an application and resume in store and was called for an interview. The interview was short; I was asked why I wanted to work there and what I thought I could contribute.

Interview Question – As Catherines is a store for plus sizes, and I do not shop there, I was asked if I thought I'd be comfortable with comments from customers about how I'm not a plus sized woman.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. As a broke college student in a town where too many people needed jobs, I didn't have much room to argue.
