    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hanesbrands (Merrimack, NH).

    Interview

    The Store Manager interviews you, then the Regional Manager. If they like you, go have to go to a mandatory Drug Test within 24 hours. You are entered into a background check that takes weeks to complete. Mine took over a month for the results to post. What a bad experience! No one has months to wait to hear back about a job.They check references too.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are straight forward, there are a few behavioral. All pretty easy to answer. This is not a good company.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is none. They give you the offer, there is NOOOO wiggle room. They paid 15.87 an hour for my position. The pay was very bad considering the workload, sales expectations, pace and size. Hanesbrands doesn't pay well, they are not in tune with market trends.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hanesbrands.

    Interview

    Submitted resume online and was called within the hour by HR recruiter. Easy conversation. Passed along to in person interview with District Manager. No difficult questions, but I had done my research, too. Final interview with Regional Manager via phone, more like a check in. Easy interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate. HR told me the wage rate for the position, I requested just above their initial rate, Company started me at even a slightly higher rate. Wage rate was less than wages for similar employment as a starting manager 20 years ago.

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

    Interview

    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!!

    Interview

    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

    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.
