Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Portage, MI

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Eddie Bauer in August 2011.

Interview Details – When I was called for a in-store interview, I was intentionally very nervous. Waiting for the interview a sales associate had me sit by the fitting rooms. The first thing i noticed is how nice it was to be somewhat by myself. I had the opportunity to get my self together and also do some research about the company with the mini booklet the handed me before I sat down. After Deb (Head Manager) sat me down in her office I was so excited to be there and answer all her questions. She was so interested in how much i new about the company and how important it was to me. I felt very at ease about my interview experience.

Interview Question – "Would you outside of work wear our clothing?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I couldn't work Saturdays because of some religious reasons and she made sure I didn't work and if I was accidentally put on the schedule she promised to take care of it.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Plano, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Eddie Bauer in March 2009.

Interview Details – I was asked why I wanted to work there and what I would bring. It was more behaviorial based, so one of the questions was, tell me about a time when you were persuasive. Above all, displaying a positive attitude and a willingness to learn about the Eddie Bauer brand proved to be important. I communicated this and it was well-received by the interviewer.

Interview Question – What would you do if a customer started yelling in the store?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – An offer of $8.25/hour is not bad for a part-time, flexible retail job.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Wauwatosa, WI

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Eddie Bauer in July 2009.

Interview Details – Interview process was fairly basic, and very nice. I just went it to drop off an application, and was able to meet with a manager on the spot. Came back a few days later to meet with the other manager, and was then offered the job. Interview questions were very basic, and what one would expect in any given interview. Also both managers were very personable and professional. After being offered the job, training was very nice to. We watched videos about the brand and culture, which were helpful, and then each employee had a different part of the training, which was helpful in getting to know my coworkers.

Interview Question – What will you bring to Eddie Bauer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – negotiation was very nice. They were interested in my experience and offered me a very fair wage based on it.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Eddie Bauer.

Interview Details – I was called in for an interview on a Saturday afternoon. The place was fairly busy and I was a little nervous. The interview itself was not very formal. The interviewer was in casual clothing whereas I dressed up in my blazer and dress pants. He asked me to tell him about myself and asked about my strengths and weaknesses and about my previous work experience. He asked if I knew anything about the store and if I ever bought anything. I replied that it was one of my favorite stores in the mall to shop at. I wasn't asked any questions about my favorite outdoor activities or anything like that. The interviewer just asked basic questions and then took me to the front of the store and had me sell an item to him. Overall, it was a very laid back interview and I felt very comfortable during the process.

Interview Question – On a scale of 1-10 how competitive are you? Give an example where you had to demonstrate your competitive skills.   Answer Question
