Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Branson, MO

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Hanesbrands in June 2014.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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

Material Technical Developer

I applied through an employee referral and 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 Question – 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.

Third Key Interview

Third Key
Grapevine, TX

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 Question – 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.

Very Easy Interview

Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern
Winston-Salem, NC

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Hanesbrands in March 2012.

Interview Details – Came on campus for a networking event. I had a good connection with one of the reps so we stayed in touch. Landed the on-campus interview and had a 2-on-1 with a couple marketing managers. Neither were very friendly and they asked only behavioral questions. Went on-site for 2nd/final round. I had two 1-on-1 interviews with a general manager and a director. Both were very nice ladies. One left for around 7 minutes (in a 30 minute interview) because of a coughing fit. Best part of the final round was being shown around the office by an HR rep named Vickie. She was funny and clever and really made me want to work there.

Interview Question – None. All behavioral and pretty standard.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
