    Assistant Head Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Harbor Freight Tools in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I'll start out by saying that I also applied for the Head Cashier position. Was called yesterday and went on interview today. Position at interview was for part time cashier and at 8.00 per hour, but the assistant head would be available soon "most likely", and I had a chance to move up. There seems to be a pattern here, based on the reviews. Interview lasted less than 5 mins. I am the one who ended it.

    Interview Details

    I was asked where I currently work and if I still wanted this job. I think they care more about your background check. I have only had one job interview that was easier, only because I never had to interview, they just hired me.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harbor Freight Tools in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    As a current employee this promotion was an internal process. Met with SM then met with DM. Discussed job parameters as well as customer service protocols. If like me you are a current employee unless you have a supervisor title currently do not expect to land this one as it prioritizes experience and seniority.

    Interview Questions
    • Not unexpected but difficulties would include knowing all 5 priorities of store.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Some room for negotiation but mostly depends on exp.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Harbor Freight Tools.

    Interview Details

    Only had to go through one quick interview to get original cashier position, was very easy and asked general questions. In order to get a management position you must interview with the store manager and district manager. They base a lot on how you can sell yourself, because you need to be able to sell their warranties and inside track club.

    Interview Questions
    • The manager will explain our extended service protection, and Inside Track Club membership briefly. They will then ask you to sell them one to see if you can be a good salesperson.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They will not negotiate pay when you start out as a cashier or sales floor personnel.
