    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Genesco in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Promoted from within. My initial process came inside the mall and all of my promotions came with very little direct communication. I was in contact with my district manager directly roughly once every couple months. To be promoted for the position I was not interviewed actually.

    AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Natick, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Natick, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Genesco in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very easy, sat down and spoke about my background before the District Sales Manager went into the details and benefits of the company. Everything seemed to be going well until I said the lowest I would go in salary would be 35, 000, seemed like the DM was hit by a brick. I thought that based on my experience, 35,000 was reasonable. Rather than telling me she couldn't do it, the DM seemed to feel my time was worthless, by stringing me on for two weeks (Having me take stupid assesments and what not), before saying the best she could do was 29,000...horrible....

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Harrisburg, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Harrisburg, PA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Genesco in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I first walked in to the store and requested information on available jobs. The store manager was on duty and decided to give me a interview on the spot. He asked basic questions about my background and work history. After that was done he said he would forward my information to the hiring manager and they would call me. About 1 week went by and the hiring manager called me for a phone interview. All of the questions were pretty basic and she offered me the job.

    Co- Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Genesco in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    First interview was okay. Very simple and short. Second interview was less than appealing. Questions were simple and more about my personal characteristics. Asked about my hobbies, likes, and dislikes. I believe they were looking for more retail experience. Overall interview process was average. I did not like that the interview took place in the open, rather than a more professional setting.
