Sales Team Leader Interview

Sales Team Leader
Valencia, CA

I applied through other source - interviewed at Hickory Farms in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by phone from the Headway Employment organization. They had seen that I had over 10 years in retail sales and management experience, and asked me pertinent questions about sales and customer service. It was an easy interview, and I knew the position was one that would be right for me.

Interview Question – It was just a comment...dealing with my maturity (age, basically) wherein they simply (not
offensively) mentioned that this position was ideal for a person of a certain achieved "maturity".

Negotiation Details – No...the pay was basically set the first year...and went up a dollar per hour for the second season.

Sales Team Leader Interview

Sales Team Leader
Springfield, MO

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Hickory Farms in October 2013.

Interview Details – The process is a joke! You interview with Regional Manager, then with Regional Area Supervisor, which is backwards, and then you are hired through a 3rd party company- Headway Workforce Solutions. You will go through a phone interview, a video interview, and then a face-to-face interview. Then you will be offered a position via phone call if you pass through all this.

Interview Question – Will you uphold our core values, including Integrity, Accountability, etc.. And these are values you will NEVER see exampled by anyone in upper management!   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Here's the job at $x an hour, do you accept?

Seasonal Retail Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Retail Sales Associate
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hickory Farms in October 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewed with the manager of the mall kiosk (whose title was Retail Sales Associate Team Leader) at the food court of the mall. Very easygoing interview. This seemed to be a look you over meeting, as you would be interacting with the public. Simple questions as to reliable transportation, ability to stand for 12 hours, ability to operate a cash register, willingness to comply with food service regulations (hair must be covered, gloves worn.)
Interview lasted less than 20 minutes. Online employee registration information given to finish at home.

Interview Question – Are you retired?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. This is the job, this is the salary.

Sales Team Leader Interview

Sales Team Leader

I applied online - interviewed at Hickory Farms in November 2012.

Interview Details – I wouldn't call the poor excuse for a meeting, let alone, interview an interview at all. This entire company is ass-backwards. Personally, I was seemingly hired on a whim, and really rushed into a job that, in the end, had no merit whatsoever on my life. I wouldn't even recommend even getting to the interview process portion of any relationship with Hickory Farms. At best, MAYBE eat their food, but I would only say eat it in the form of a free sample, because paying for anything they sell is outrageous.

Interview Question – There literally were no questions asked of me. My resume was read, they told me I was hired, then hurried me into an apron.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nothing was said about the compensation, until after the job was acquired.

Retail Area Supervisor Interview

Retail Area Supervisor
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hickory Farms in September 2012.

Interview Details – applied online through Headway recruiting. Was called within one week to conduct phone interview with Headway representative. Questions more behavioral than about my background and experience. Was thebpn called by Reginal Manager within a week for a basic phone screen. We then met in person for a brief face-to - face interview. I had the feeling it was more to check that I was presentable and personable.

Interview Question – None. I did google "most asked interview behavioral questions" or something like that, and thought about potential experiences that might help me during the interview. I was thoroughly prepared, and it showed.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary was stated up front, and I did not negotiate.
