Interview Question – Having to accept that you will be on your feet the entire time and having to work very long hours on the holidays.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You may negotiate either you want to be paid on commission or be paid at a fixed pay rate.

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at JoS. A. Bank in October 2012.

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

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed 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.).

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

Negotiation Details – The job has a base pay plus commission.
