Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kangaroo Express.

Interview Details – All applications are done online at their website. The managers have their hands full and rarely get the opportunity to look over the applications online, so call the store you are interested in working at so they can look you up. The interview is kind of scripted, they ask about previous experience, what you would do with irate customers etc. Nothing new to anyone that has worked customer service.

Interview Question – Would probably be being asked to describe a time you had to deal with an angry customer and how you handled it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – About the only negotiation room you have, only sometimes, is the hours you want to work.

Store Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Kangaroo Express.

Interview Details – Interview with District Manager went well. DM made me fell comfortable during the interview and asked the typical questions for the position. Salary I requested was a little above the normal entry level but I had experience and salary did not seem to be a problem.

Interview Question – Interview with Regional District Manager was more like an interrogation. RDM made the comment the store managers salaries were the same regardless of experience. Their managers made $32000 and I was asking $36000. Managers worked 60 hours plus a week and one weekend a month. Which averages out to $10.25 per hour to be available 24/7.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kangaroo Express in May 2013.

Interview Question – If one smoked pot.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – She asked how much i wanted and i stated higher than 7.25 and she gave me 9.25
