    Interview Details

    The manager had me sit outside the store while I was being interviewed. She asked questions about my experience working, and how I would handle situations of high stress or high pace. She then went over dress code(there is none), commission(4%), and employee standards (don't come in drunk or high).

    It was a very casual setting- no real place to interview, I actually interviewed on a show lawn mower in the walkway outside. However, I figured it would be really laid-back. The guy I talked to was very nice and personable.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Journeys shoes in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a few weeks later, the manager called asking me to come to an interview in a few days. My interview was in a group of about 5 other people, mostly teens and young adults. The manager was extremely friendly. She basically just asked us all a bunch of questions, but it was really laid back. She asked us pretty basic interview questions: why we want to work at Journeys, our strengths and weaknesses, and how we'd sell a shoe to her. She asked for an example of a project we're really proud of.

    Interview Details

    I called the store after I applied online and the manager told me to come in for an interview. He left the packet with the interview questions on his desk! But he told me about himself and I did the same. He asked simple questions about being a leader and the days I was available. It was a very short interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Journeys shoes in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty laid back and easy. The manager took me outside the store and talked to be about the basics of the store and what I'd be doing if I got the position. Then he showed me around the stockroom and that was pretty much it. He did't ask me any questions because I didn't have any prior retail experience.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered another job sooner.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Journeys shoes in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I originally went in to turn in a paper application, but the assistant manager said they only did onlines! So I introduced myself and he took my contact information and I went home to do the online application. A few days later, I was getting dinner at the mall and went in to introduce myself to the Store Manager and he liked that a lot. The next day I got a call to set up an interview. It was very calm and the assistant manager interviewed me and we went to the food court. It was a lot of questions about "What would you do/What have you done in these situation" questions which I could use actual examples to with having past work experience. About 5 days after I called as he was calling me to tell me I got the job!

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted after about four days. We set up an interview for a few days later. The interview was very informal, the questions were easy ( I was nervous and had problems with that, but it shouldn't have been an issue). The guy interviewing me was very laid back and friendly. It was ultimately a good experience.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Journeys shoes in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received a call the following morning for a group interview. At first i was nervous because i had never done one before but i knew shyness wouldnt get anywhere. I volunteered to share about myself first i think it gives you an advantage. After i had gone i felt so much more relaxed and found relating to what the others had to say. 2 weeks later i received a call which shocked me because i was offered the job without a 1 on 1 interview. Just be yourself shake off all the nerves before your interview and be jolly and happy. Plus, dont ramble about things that dont relate to what they're asking you. Goodluck !

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Journeys shoes in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview was easy. You absolutely have to wear shoes that they carry in the store you are applying for. I wasn't asked normal interview questions. They want to see how friendly and persistent you can be. So make sure you are funny and really try to become your hiree's friend almost instantly. Know about the shoes you are wearing, too. I was called back later that day and was scheduled a second interview. I was expecting more questions but that wasn't the case at all. I was told to put on a lanyard and become the friend of the next person to walk in. Don't try to sell shoes. Just be their friend and talk to them. The next person to walk in was 2 Asian men who barely spake English. I had a conversation for a while with them. It just took a little digging to get to their talking parts.
