Application Details

I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Journeys shoes in April 2014.

Interview Details

Applied for an Asst. Manager position. Got called in for an 'informal' meeting. After talking with the Store Manager I was told that they don't hire outside for managers, they start at floor level & then work their way up the ranks because it takes too much time & effort to train new people as management.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Journeys shoes in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pleasent. I was interviewed by the area manager. She was really nice. She really liked me and the interview was pretty casual. She liked my experience and the fact I was educated. She wanted something different. Then she wanted me to go international for the company after 6 months, and even suggested that I should go into the legal team for the company in the future if I desired to attend law school (That's what I want to do in the near future). My problem was the schedule. I liked the fact it was a chill and relaxed job, but it just wasn't for me. I was offered the position on the spot.

    It really wasn't going to be enough pay. They pay based on commission. It was a risk. Plus, I had school and I was offered a better position from another company that I could see myself going further.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Journeys shoes in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I went online, applied for a job at Journeys.
    I got a phone call the next day and they told me they wanted to interview me.
    I accepted the offer.
    They called me back, and told me the interview would take place a different location.
    I went to that specific location, and I told them I am there for a interview, and they all seemed puzzled, like they were not expecting me. :/

    They made me fill out an application, and something else that shows what kind of person you are ... like are you quiet, this and that.. blah blah. I filled that out too.

    Then we sat down at the food court with the manager, and she asked me what I did at my previous job, and why I want to work at Journeys and stuff like that.

    They also told me they work commission.

    NO thanks ;)
