    Assistant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Holiday Stationstores (Coon Rapids, MN) in July 2012.

    Interview

    At first it seemed like the manager was interested in getting to know me and wanted to make sure I was interested in the job. All of the questions are the same generic "What would you do in this position?" and "What if you found money on the floor?" It almost seemed as thought they were willing to care. What they don't tell you during the interview is the rate at which people are fired, what it actually expected of you, the workload, the pay, the hours, and what the upper management is like.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions asked are very basic, very easy to answer. The worst question is when they asked: "An employee is late several days out of the week. What would you do in this situation?" There isn't a right answer if its not "Fire them on the spot."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    We would like to offer you the position if you are interested.
