Sales Supervisor Interview

Sales Supervisor
Tarzana, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Lacoste in August 2011.

Interview Details – Emailed them then went in to leave a resume. I heard back over the phone after about one week. They offered me an interview in which I went in and meshed well with the management. After a successful interview I was asked to fill out paperwork to expedite the hiring process "if" I am extended a job offer. The following day I received a phone call with a job offer to start immediately.

Interview Question – Seeing as how you came from a limited retail background, what competencies do you believe will help you excel in this position?

Why are you a good choice for Lacoste?
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I declined the offer because I was offered a better Compensation and benefits package somewhere else.

She approved me through the Director of the store and finally did a face-to-face and was offer the job a few days later.
