Retail Sales Associate Interview
Applied online. Received a phone interview and was asked to come for a physical interview. Neither the store manager or the assistant manager had time to interview me, though they said I would be interviewing with them. Had a great time interviewing with their department leads, though I would have appreciated at least meeting one of the managers who said they would interview be doing the interview.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Sportswear (Orlando, FL) in January 2012.
I decided to apply at Columbia on the recommendation of a friend of mine. After about a week of no word, I called one of the supervisors and ask about how the process was moving along. They told me they would let me know as soon as they hear anything from the store manager. After another week, I called again, and received the same spiel. A couple of days later, I got a call from the supervisor I'd been nagging for two weeks; it was information about setting up an interview within the next few days. I headed over to the store in my best hipster clothes, and talked with one of the head supervisors. I was asked your run-of-the-mill retail questions, like how I would approach certain situations, why I wanted to work with the company, and why I liked interacting with people. The second interview included the store manager. Not really much to say about this one; it was almost exactly like the first.

This was pretty interesting. I'd never been asked what I would like to get paid. I needed a job, so I chickened out and asked the supervisor what the normal pay in the store was. I wasn't unhappy with the pay; it was almost a dollar more than I was getting paid at my previous job.
