    Sales Executive Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at JoS. A. Bank.

    Interview

    Initially, you visit the company's website and fill out an application for your prospective location. They give you a call to set up an interview. The interview is very laid back and asks common questions, they will not ask you any questions that you do not know the answer to. Post interview they will either offer you the job or get back with you later. If you're offered the job, they'll have you visit the floor and put together an attire that they provide the details for (type of event, what the particular customer likes and does not like, etc.).

    Interview Questions

    • They will not ask you any question that you do not know the answer to.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The job has a base pay plus commission.

    Management Trainee -- Planning Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at JoS. A. Bank.

    Interview

    I had a marathon interview process. I was interviewed by four people in one sitting. One of the interviewers was obviously not prepared to interview me, so that was a total waste of time. The other 3 asked pretty much the same questions in each interview. I started with an HR rep, then two of the people that I would potentially be working directly for, and finally a VP that didn't really ask anything pertinent. All four interviewers were nice, I just had no idea that I would be spending 20 to 30 minutes waiting in between interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • I had one exec asked me if I would be bored with the job because of my previous experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, it was a take it or leave it offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at JoS. A. Bank.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few days I had a phone call asking me to come into the store. I spoke with the Store Manager directly and they made time for the interview. Dressed in a suit I went for the interview at the store. The manager asked me a few questions and most of it was out of the ordinary. Towards the end of the interview I was given two suits and asked what I would put with them. They want to know if you can upsell a customer from just suits, to suits, ties, and other accessories. The staff themselves were relatively friendly and inviting and it was an overall good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • What would your previous employer say was your weakest aspect?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. There was an hourly wage and a commission percentage that were given and I could take it or leave it.
