    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Express (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was on the spot, extremely casual and surprisingly simple. The manager walked around the store with me while asking me questions. It probably helps to wear an outfit that looks like it came from Express to boost your chances of getting the job. Usually you go through a group interview before going on a 1:1 interview. However, I was referred by an employee so I skipped the group interview. The questions ranged from why I chose Express to describe Express in 3 words. I managed to pass never having walked into the store until that day. My advice is to just smile, give a firm handshake and be outgoing and sociable.

    Interview

    Well. When I went in for the interview. First thing the manager said to me was I need to wear express clothing. Questioned me on places that I shop. And I believed they were short handed, because I got offered the job on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Express.

    Interview

    They interview you in the middle of the store and it's super unprofessional. They call your two references. They barely interview and accept everyone then give you barely any hours if you aren't picking up on the techniques quickly enough. Very basic questions to understand your background and why you're working there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Express in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. They asked you to describe yourself, how have you been provided good customer service or given good customer service, then a role play in helping a customer and welcoming them into the store. They also want a reference and to have the reference contact them. The pay rate is all over the place but, I was given two differing hourly wages. One by the interviewing manager at $8.25 an hour and another by the other hiring manager at $9.00 an hour. They also only offer very part time positions. For example, most places offer 10 hours a week starting but they offer three. They're very nice and laid back but, I definitely needed more hours.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Express in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very casual. Walked in about 20 minutes early along with another candidate. We were interviewed together by one of the managers. A very relaxed and low stress interview. At the end of the interview we were told to expect a phone call from the store manager and that he would make the final decision.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Express (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. Myself and two other candidates were asked a series of questions (some situational) and took turns answering. The hardest part is making yourself standout without looking like you're overcompensating by bulldozing the others. Try to answer first every other question, maintain contact and use others' answers to build up your own; this shows you're good at listening and teamwork.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Tell me about yourself Q: When was a time you either received or was given good/bad customer service? Q: what qualifies you for this position? Q: Strengths/Weaknesses and how have you worked on them? Q: If a customer comes in looking for a pair of shoes, what do you do?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Express.

    Interview

    The interview was quick. The hiring manager was unorganized. You NEED references and it is a two interview process. The manager sometimes asked the interviewee to get their references to contact the hiring manager. That was a ridiculous request on their part. A lot of work for bad pay, poor management, and a not-so-luxurious brand.
