    Interview Details

    I applied online and they called me about a week later to schedule for an interview. It was easy, but the interview didn't last long due to not enough questions for me to answer so it was quick. They said they would call me next week but I never got the call.

    Application Details

    The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Janie and Jack.

    Interview Details

    I have a contact with the company. After a few weeks, I received a call from the District Manager for a phone interview. A week later, I met her for a one-on-one. About a week went by and I met with Manager of a sister company, followed by a FOURTH interview with the Store Manager of the location I would be working. I was shocked at the low pay and lack of benefits,etc. However, I took the position since my contact had worked to get me interviewed and I needed work. Basic interview questions and "standard". Nothing difficult.

    Interview Questions
    • "Our customers expect world-class service. How would you handle a difficult customer who may be a little heated?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I you choose to work here, it will be for little pay, hours on your feet usually working alone in the store. Not much in way of benefits and most Assistant Managers are part-time without benefits. Also, Managers rarely make BONUS because they are usually over in payroll... If you go over more than 1% per week or don't make sales you will not bonus. Also, returns from online sale into the store are against you for that days sales. None of this is discussed.

    Interview Details

    I had gone into the store and asked for an application. After returning the application I received a call to come in for an interview. The interview was very informal. I sat with the manager in the backroom and she asked a few questions and then she told me when my start date would be. The first few weeks of the job was shadowing another sales associate.
