Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Marshalls.

Interview Details – I applied through my school job website. I got a phone interview 1 week later. The interview would ask me about 5 to 8 question regarding the jobs and about me. She was very interest about me and wanted to schedule a face to face interview, but then she wanted someone that graduated from college. I didnt get another interview due to that, but then i got a thank you letter from the interviewer for being interested about the company

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Portland, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Marshalls in December 2010.

Interview Details – Was Called for the interview by the store manager, met with him and the district manager. A couple days later I had a phone interview with a regional manager for P&L. I received an offer the following sunday. both managers seemed very friendly and genuinely interested in what i had to say. We spoke of my past experiences and how that would fit into the existing position. From what I was told in the interview the company seemed to be a great place to be, (this was expressed in both interviews). I was most nervous about my lack of management experience so I was very surprised and excited to receive an offer.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Marshalls.

Interview Details – applied online thru TJX and was called by a store manager within a week. Had interview with same store manager 3 days later. Very informal, but professional interview. Comfortable and informative. Explained exactly how store operated and what the mission was of the company. Received interview with District Manager 3 days later. Met with DM and another SM at same interview. Was not like your typical interview which are usually based on the "Tell me about a time" questions from a script. Questions were about experience and what direction the company was going in. Customer service questions and operational questions alike. Felt that the DM was very receptive and honest and didnt sugar coat anything. I found the process very smooth, professional and enjoyable.

Interview Details – Interviews depend on who is interviewing you, My previous DM was fantastic and I immediately knew I wanted to work for him. He allowed me to talk about my experince and accomplishments and then he decided I sound more like a store manager. I interviewed with the higher ups and was offered a position a week later; in which I gladly accepted.
