    Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in King of Prussia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in King of Prussia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Garage.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed first with the assistant manager then with the store manager. Everyone loved me and seemed like they really wanted me to get the job. The next step was interviewing with the dm. They wanted me to drive all the way to Cherry Hill, NJ (I live near Philly) to interview with her. I said okay because I really wanted the job and I just happened to already have plans to go to Jersey that day anyway to visit a friend. So I get a call and the store manager, Liz, tells me the DM is too busy so it will have to be a phone interview. I said okay and went through with it. I interviewed with her for probably 40 minutes on the phone and everything went exceptionally well. Liz had even given me her number in case I had any questions about the interview with the DM- all signs showing she really wanted me to get this job. Everything was great, the DM loved me so we moved forward and they did a background check on me. I guess during this time a lot of employers were doing background checks because I waited for almost two weeks and it still hadn't finished yet. Next thing I know I'm receiving a TEXT MESSAGE from the store manager telling me I wasn't going to get the job. Seriously? A TEXT? How unprofessional can a person be??? Everything about the way she did things was so unprofessional and disorganized. If this is how they handle situations, I can only imagine what it would be like to work for that company. I wasn't even given a reason as to why they didn't choose me; but I'm assuming it's because they found someone who wanted less money than I did. It's King of Prussia mall for pete's sake, they must make good money. Horrible experience.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Garage.

    Interview Details

    I applied in June and I didn't get a call back for an interview until the end of August. I got the application from the store with my friend, and turned it in that day. I got called in for the interview and scheduled it for early September. During the interview the manager asked basic questions like "tell me about yourself" "Why do you want to work for Garage" The interview lasted about 10 minutes then you had to take a short "quiz" it was basically a bunch of scenarios and you had to pick the best answer. After all of that was done with they said they would have their decisions within the next week. Overall I thought the interview went well I kept the manager laughing and smiling but ended up not getting the job.

    I must warn you guys there was a race issue (at least at the location I applied at) that stop me from getting the job (it was a serious issue might I add) with not only me but 2 other African Americans that had interviews before me.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Garage in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application on their website, they called be back within about a week, maybe two weeks. I had to go in for a questionnaire, mainly consisting of situational questions, all which had to be completed in 30 minutes; I could not make it the original day that they wanted me to come, they were lenient with allowing me to reschedule. I was called back a couple of days after their estimated date of when they were going to let me know. When you go in for the interview, some advice would be to take a good look at their clothes, they will definitely ask you questions, which knowing their style will help. Most of the questions were about basic retail. You might be asked to sell an item on you, some even have to put together an outfit with their clothes, to sell to whoever is interviewing them. After the interview, the assistant manager, who was the one that I was interviewed by, seemed more laid-back, than she did in the interview. I heard back a bit later than when I was told that they would call me.

    Interview Details

    This is a clothing company originally from Canada but is now coming to the United States and I applied to a new one opening in my state through a job fair. It was fairly easy all I had to do was pick up an application, fill it out, give it back and then waited a minute to be interviewed by someone. The girl who interviewed me was super nice and was the co-manager of the store (i guess they have that even though it's not even opened yet) but the interview questions were basic, she asked about my previous experience, what is my biggest accomplishment and how would i describe good customer service and a few more questions along those lines. It's been almost a month and i have not recieved a call from them but the store is not even opened yet still so i'm still hoping to get the call.

    GARAGE CLOTHING is weird in that the hiring process takes place on the clothing floor itself. The interview was inturupted by customers and she couldnt hear e because of the music. Overall the place was like the uglier cousin of A&F and i was way overdressed compared to the uggs and flannel the people on the floor were wearing. If you want to get hired just work in that your neat, you can sell, and you are always on time.
