    Interview

    hiring process was fairly easy, they are willing to train people on registers and customer service. you end up spending most of the day asking people is they want bags, greeting them, and making sure that the shoe displays are organized.

    Interview

    I went in and handed in my application directly to the manager. I got a call back the next day telling me I had an interview. It ended up being a group interview which was good because you could feed off of other peoples answers and they asked questions like "whats your favorite shoe brand and why" and then had you go out on the floor and interact with customers.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Applied online, called for a follow-up and called back a month later for an interview. It was my first interview ever and was really nervous, so I don't think I did very well. Got an email a few days later saying they were pursuing other applicants. Make sure you know what their core values are and be sure to have some situational answers prepared
