Sales Associate, "Charmer" Interview

Sales Associate, "Charmer"
Kansas City, MO

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Charming Charlie.

Interview Details – I filled the application out online and they got back to me within the week. We scheduled for an interview for the next day. The interview was a group interview, but it was only me and one other candidate. We were given a scenario and sent out into the store to create a complete outfit using the clothes and accessories in the store. We both were hired on the spot.

Interview Question – Tell about a time when you solved a difficult problem   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Only offered minimum wage and I already had retail experience

Charmer/Sales Associate Interview

Charmer/Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Charming Charlie.

Interview Details – I walked into the store to ask about applying and was told to apply online so I went home and applied that same day and received a call the very next day. I went in for a group interview a couple of days after the call

Heres what to wear: Sandals (No flip flops, sneakers, slip ons, etc) also make sure your toes are painted nicely
any top should be ok just nothing to revealing and the straps should be two fingers width
For bottoms no shorts either pants or a skirt or jeans but pants are probably best

or you could wear a dress but nothing to revealing or short

also wear accessories if you have them! Lots of them!

We did the interview in the back of the store which was a little awkward because there were customers all around us

we answered standard questions the whole process from when I got there to when I left took roughly 45 mins and I got a call the very next day saying I got the job than two days later I went in for "onboarding" where you bring your identification and info to get set up on payroll than you officially start working the next week. (no formal training really...)

Charmer/Sales Associate Interview

Charmer/Sales Associate
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Charming Charlie in October 2013.

Interview Details – Lead/Senior manager is slightly unorganized; she was 5 minutes late to interview me and then I had to wait 15 minutes more before the actually interview started because she had to open up the store. The interview was basic, "tell me about yourself", "what's your 'style'", etc. When I was offered the position she just called and told me to bring in certain paperwork so I could be entered into the system as an employee.

Interview Question – "Who's style inspires you and why?" I am not big on fashion, I wear what I like and don't often look to celebrity style to choose my outfits, so this question caught me off-guard.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Was not able to negotiate - unskilled minimum wage job.
