Application

I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Eastern Mountain Sports.

Interview

I came into the store and filled out an application. I spoke with the store manager and explained why I wanted to work there and asked if I could come in for an interview. I was given a date for the following week for an interview. I arrived for the interview and was only asked a few simple questions. The conversation quickly turned to how much the pay would be and when I could start.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

No negotiation. I was told that $10 /hr is the best they can do.

    Interview

    hiring process was just an interview and then a reference call check. there wasn't really too much to it, basically just like any other retail interview process. then you go through some video training (which isn't really that useful) and you are ready to go

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Eastern Mountain Sports (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got called in for an interview, and granted that i have worked many jobs and have 2 degrees, this was one of the most intense interview for a 10/hr position. Questions varied from describe a position of leadership, or a time in your life when you had to convince someone to do something that they didn't want to do. Very strange questions for a regular sales position for poor pay. Following the manager could not verify all of my references and made me submit new ones.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Eastern Mountain Sports (New York, NY) in April 2009.

    Interview

    4 interviews to become a part time guide. A little excessive. What can I say: it was 2009 and I was desperate for a job like 1,000,000 other Americans. The process seemed lengthy, unorganized and a little over the top. It was difficult to determine if it was a legitimate and thoughtful delay to ensure smart hiring or if the powers that be were uncertain of what their precise needs were. Could be really intimidating for younger applicants that are new to interviews.

    Job application was standard retail - standard form application has to be filled out on-site. I was called in for an in-person interview with the manager of the store, told about the company and offered a position within half an hour.
