    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.).

    Management Trainee -- Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at JoS. A. Bank in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Customer service is key. Most people going into this will not know what they are doing. It will take most people about three months or so to really learn the product and have the possibility to hit commission. When you go to your interview, push all of your customer service skills. Also, before you apply, stop in the store and see if they needs people, and just how badly they do.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't really get asked many questions. I presented all of my customer service history, and was a complete walk on for the store.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to get $9/hr. That is the company maximum for this position. All in all, is just isn't worth the money.
