Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Houston, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Lids in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted months after I applied to Lids by the Store Manager. I was suppose to meet with them the next day and they rescheduled to the following week. Then when the new day came I am sitting at our meeting location and they calls 10 minutes before our meeting and says can they call me later because she was our of the city and is on her way back so then hours later calls and says she is in the area lets meet in 15 minutes. We met and barely talked about my position at the store she heard about where I worked and immediately called her DM to meet me the next day. I met with him and we talked about my experience and my favorite sports team. Then he said that they will call my references and call me later. They continuously called me telling me I was hired and just waiting on my background check. That took 3 weeks to do and then I started there as ASM.

Interview Question – Not a hard interview at all. Very easy   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didnt negotiate, I was offered what I asked but got hired on at less when I did paperwork. Dont accept anything less that what you ask for.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Columbia, SC

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lids in October 2012.

Interview Details – Initially, I was contacted by a local store manager. He invited me to come speak with him about an assistant store manager position. After a brief interview with him, I was asked to come back to a job fair the next week. I interviewed with a District Manager in training. The interview was brief, mainly focusing on customer service skills and sports knowledge. He passed my resume on to his District Manager. I met with her about a week later and was offered the job on the spot.

Interview Question – If you could be anyone else in the world, who would you be?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – In some cases you're able to negotiate salary, but they will put up a tough fight and they won't budge much.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lids in August 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and I got a email on Tuesday to come in the next day literally less than 24 hour notice. The emails was like interviewing tomarrow at this mall between 10-4 basically if you behind need a job you will drop everything!!!! I was reluctant but went to the interview and found it was more like a mini job fair. I was handed a application and waited for the next availible interviewer. It was like 5 people do them. I lucked up and got the table( in the food court) with two men and they began to ask questions in a tag team manner. I answered one question and before I could blink the other guy asked one. They gave me the whole we will be in contact but after this I was not interested because they seemed like too much stress for a hat store. I never heard of the company and decided to wing it and only learned about the company for 5 minutes on my i-phone. They dont offer over 30,000.00 so this would not have worked for me I would have declined!!!!
