    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Hanesbrands.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online. Was contacted by someone at home office, and scheduled a phone interview. After that was complete, I had a interview in the actual store with the SM and RSM. The one on one interview was the usual. It was scripted. The SM asked several questions out of a binder, and acted truly interested and took notes on my answers. That interview lasted about an hour. The one on one with the RSM was really relaxed, and short. More of a tell me your story type situation, definitely not scripted. The next step was background, credit check, and drug screen. Then I was extended an offer, and accepted it. The whole process took about 2 weeks.

This went on for SIX PAGES of questions!!!!! Seriously?? SIX PAGES?? After 3 or 4 pages, I didn't even know what the heck I was saying anymore and felt like a blabbering iodiot!! No wonder I didn't get a call back!   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Hanesbrands in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the job resource center in my state and was contacted about 3 weeks later to schedule an interview. I interviewed with both the manager and the assistant manager at the same time, in a casual setting, very relaxed interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was how I handled a difficult customer in the past, only because I had several stories but none of them related to retail since I have only worked in other customer service fields before.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They contact all of your references and their background check is complete. Make sure your references know they will be contacted to avoid delay! I have been offered the job, but am still waiting for a few references to call the manager back.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Hanesbrands.

    Interview Details

    After applying, I was contacted by a person in HR for an initial phone screening. This was pretty brief and limited to basic questions such as why I wanted the position and resume walk through.

    I was notified they would like to bring me onsite, which consisted of two in person interviews. The interviewers are given a list of behavioral questions which they read and ask questions from. One of the interviewers weaved the questions in and out of the interview, which was nice, the other person simply just read one question, I answered and they read the next one, which was quite uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • It was all behavioral questions, neither one harder or easier than the previous. Just be prepared to have lots of things to refer to in your past work experience.   Answer Question
