    I applied online to a general job posting for the store near me. I received a call from the store's General Manager about a week later and scheduled an interview right away. I first met with the general manager and then with each of the department managers and assistant general manager.

    They were mostly interested in my willingness to be "Jaredized" and to change my style to fit theirs.

    They were interested in whether or not I was planning to grow with the company because they are really looking for people who want to become managers.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Jared Galleria of Jewelry in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I first interviewed with Asst. General Manager who was a likeable person who made me want to work for the company. She told me she thought I would be a great fit with the company and that she was sure the General Manager would like me as much as she did. I then interviewed with the General Manager who hired me on the spot, pending necessary background tests, etc. The salary was considerably lower than I had ben paid at the job I previously had, and the commission rates were also considerably lower. But I decided to give it a chance. I started work within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked regarding my overall knowlege and education about diamonds and colored stones.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I told the GM the pay was not acceptable and we negotiated back and forth until I told him I would call him the following day with my answer.. It took 3 .5 hours and he told me he was frustrated because he was accustomed to interviewees accepting almost immediately, but that it showed my skills as a sales person. Towards the end, he hit the table with his fist and asked me, "are you going to work for me or not?" He pretended he was joking but I think he was serious. We ended the interview with my telling him I would give him a response the following day. I called him the following day and told him I accepted his offer. He semed pleased.
