    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a 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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at JoS. A. Bank (Houston, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Must send up application on line. Called within a week for an interview. Met with the store manager. Call back within a couple of days with an offer and a start date. Training lasted for about 3 weeks and lacked sufficient thoroughness even though that was plenty of time to be thorough. Managers could careless about helping you.

    Negotiation

    Just told what expected earnings would be and about the draw that was to be paid back and beyond that would be commission earned.
