I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at JoS. A. Bank in February 2013.

Interview Details – Super easy and laid back interviewing process. The manager actually forgot that he called to even have me come in and speak with him. So when I showed up he was surprised, it took probably about 10 minutes for the whole interview. He mainly wanted to know about your background and experience. since its retail they also want to hear things like what you would do on slow days or on other people's up's. Pretty basic overall.

Interview Question – You have 1 minute to put together 3 different suit looks begin!   View Answer

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at JoS. A. Bank in November 2012.

Interview Details – Applied on line, was called by the manager and had an interview at a table in the food court of the mall. Not much details, he said that he was opening the first Jos A Ban factory outlet store in Michigan and wanted to put together a great "tem". He didn't even know which was the hourly pay. He thought it was $8.00, instead it was $9.00.

Interview Question – Non difficult questions, the guy didn't seem a miracle of intelligence.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Take the hourly pay or leave it.
