    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Clarks.

    Interview

    The hiring process is pretty easy. Apply online then you'll get a call for a one on one interview. The person that interview me was pretty laid back. When I was interview we went to the food court to conduct the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing pretty easy.   Answer Question
    • After being offered the position the manager could not tell me about pay or what I could potentially make. The person just kept referencing previous pay from other stores to me. This was why I could not work for this company. I work for money not hopes and dreams.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Could not tell me how much I was going to be paid.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Clarks.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone and set up an in-store interview. I felt really misled because the position that I was interviewed for was for a trainee, which the application did not mention, so I felt like they wasted my time by not being honest from the start. Otherwise, the interviewer seemed nice and fair. He asked a lot of basic yes/no questions. Interview lasted around 30 or 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • No question was unexpected. Basic "Why do you want the job". "Are you comfortable conversing with customers".   Answer Question

    Interview

    Intensive interview. Standard questions, and then 'tell me a time when...' questions. Expect at least 2 interviews. Interviews lasting more than an hour are a good sign. Short interviews...forget about it.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time when you didn't get along with a co worker/boss. There is no good answer.   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Clarks (Willow Grove, PA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the job off the mall website. I literally got a call the next day to set up an interview, and my interview was set the next day. The store was still being built so we had it outside the store. She asked basic questions, gave a little information about the store, values etc. I came in a couple days later to put my background info and meet the other employees, and my district manager. Everybody was really nice.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected thing she did was ask me about my salesmanship. Being the fact that I was fresh out of high school, I didn't have any retail experience but because I was a business major, I told her I knew I could sell myself. So, she asked me to sell her the pen she was holding. It was random but it was really fun to do. She liked the way I sold it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It's a commission only job, there isn't any negotiation.
