    Interview Details

    I applied online and went in to follow up the next day. They set up an interview for the following day. When I had my interview it was really busy so my interview was only 5 minutes long. She asked why I wanted to work retail and what made Express stand out to me. I was offered the job the next day once my references had been checked.

    Interview Details

    There was only one interview for me. The interview was held as a group interview. Us candidates were asked questions by the store manager. I would recommend sitting closer towards the front, it shows initiative and a real interest to work for the company!

    Interview Questions
    • The store manager had an old shoe laying around, and we were tasked to pretend sell it. The manager watched how we tried to talk up the item and relate it to the customer.   Answer Question

I customers in the fitting rooms, hung up a few garments on the fitting rack. I also attempted to put a few articles of clothing back in there respective places .lol. The store manager was watching me and taking note of my interaction with the customers. However I was unaware that she was a manager. I'm glad that i did not know because I probably would have been a nervous wreck:)

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered an amount I made another offer than we meant in the middle. According to her she budged a little because I college educated although it was in unrelated field, she still took it into consideration. Normally people start off at minimum wadge according to her.

    interviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I came in and it was a pretty basic interview. It started off with getting to know me and that stuff. They asked me about their companies' goals and stuff like that. In the end, dont negotiate your salary if you do not have any prior experience working as a sales associate anywhere else.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in today for an interview, arrived 30 minutes early. The interview took only about 10 mins, I was asked about previous work experience in retail. 10 mins later got a call to come to orientation from 5pm-9pm this coming Friday! Overall they are looking for friendly people who can work at a fast pace. I actually buy a lot from express so the hiring manager noticed my clothing, guess that helped out a little too. I went dressed in executive/formal clothing.

    If you have no retail experience don't negotiate your salary. Everyone starts at $8:25, at least here in NJ.

    I applied online – interviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call a few days later for Interview. I did my research and figured it would be a piece of cake. However none of the questions I was expecting were asked. The manager spent most of the time talking about the company, then proceeded to ask us one company we would not recommend to others and then one that we would. Then she asked about the last job we had and said she'll call if she was interested.

The manager opening interview question was, "Why Express?" followed by, What do you think customer service consists of? What was the best customer service that you have experienced? What will you bring to the table? What is different about you? What are you going to school for?

    Interview Details

    Saw an ad in the store stating that they were hiring, and I was advised to complete an application online. After submitting my application, I got a call the next day to schedule my interview and give names of two references. The interview itself lasted about 15-20 minutes and consisted of basic interview and "what would you do if..." questions, nothing too difficult. After she called my references, the lady I interviewed with called me back with a job offer!
