    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed 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.

    Dropped off application, received phone call to set up interview time and date. Manager was very nice. Whole interview took one hour from start to finish. Was given six pages of questions to read out loud and answer.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked "what's your favorite store to shop at?", "what's your least favorite store to shop at?". I was asked a few other common questions which was easy. I was then given a list of questions to read out loud and then answer. Scenario questions like "give me an example of a time when an employee did this or that and what did you do?" 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

    Material Technical Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Hanesbrands in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews that were fairly general before being flown in for the in person interview. Only met with 2 people for the in person and they were personable and friendly. There was no tour or broader introductions. They kept me waiting and made the day to day business seem busy and hectic. The most interesting part of the interview was when the interviewer spoke about the new CEO and made the company seem committed to advancement and change.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions focused on technical textiles which was decieving because once in the position being too technical was frowned on.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was a flat offer and there was no real negotiation, it was a salary only and there was no relocation offered.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Hanesbrands in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I walked in to the store, because I saw they only had two employees, so I figured they needed help. I filled out a paper application, and within a week I had an interview. I met right at opening time, and the interview lasted approximately 15 minutes. I was hired on the spot. Getting an interview was easy, and I had a great experience with the hiring manager. She did ask the standard interview questions, but she was very personable and easy to talk to, which was important.

    Interview Questions
    • There was not an interview question that I found difficult to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't able to negotiate much in the pay scale. They follow a specific pay scale, and I had the max in my position. They did work well with my school schedule, however.
