Very Easy Interview
Seasonal Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Cost Plus in November 2012.
Interview Details – I applied online with several nearby store locations, through worldmarket.com. I was contacted by 2 out of the 3 stores I applied at, based on my extensive previous retail experience. I decided to only interview with the one closest to me. The interview was fairly informal, with the GM, and he asked me questions that were pre-determined by CPWM corporate. Some questions like: "Give an example of a time when you had a disagreement with a supervisor. How did you handle it?" "Give an example of a time when you had to resolve a problem. How did you handle it?" etc. etc. Most all questions were this way. I was also asked why I wanted to work there, what interested me most about CPWM, if I could handle asking people to sign up for WME, if I knew what the WME program was, why they should hire me, etc.
Interview Question – I don't feel the interview was at all difficult, nor the questions unexpected or hard to answer. For someone new to interviewing or the job market, I could see it being somewhat of a challenge. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. The hourly rate was acceptable for the position and I accepted.
