Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Memphis, TN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Circle K in October 2010.

Interview Details – I had an associate that already was employed so getting an interview was a bit easier. I went online and took a Bigby Havis survey and was called within a week. After an interview with the Regions Operations Director and a Market Manager I was given a more detailed "paper and pencil" survey. The experience was what I expected having worked in the industry and hired many people myself over my 20 years.

Interview Question – Mostly asked about situational management and my previous experience. Questions such as how would I reign in a problem store, what processes would I employ to increase revenue and stop theft. No real unexpected questions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was given an offer letter with an amount, and was paid commiserate to my experience. No real negotiation. Really pleasant experience.
