    Interview

    Rushed, but easy. Bother interviews were done on the same day. There seemed to have been a bit of confusion as to what position I was being hired for. One manager told me A, and the other told me B. They do not actually give you a rate of pay until you show up for orientation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marshalls (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The Marshalls I applied for was one of the largest locations in America. The manager interviewed applicants in groups. There were around ten of us. It was pretty difficult to stand out among the large crowd. They had first given us an application with interview questions and we were to answer them. After handing in the application, the manager called all of us into a room and she would ask questions and every applicant would get a turn to reply.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marshalls (Auburn, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, then like 2 weeks later they called me in for an interview. They were interviewing a lot of people, and the manager took me back, later than my time I was supposed to be taken back. She asked me typical questions, like "why marshalls" or "what does customer service mean to you". The manager looked uninterested the whole time, which kind of made me unconfident. She then sent me on my way, telling me if I'm called by the next Friday, they picked me to work there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marshalls (Albuquerque, NM) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through snag-a-job and was called 6 days later to schedule an interview. During the phone call the manager on duty said to show up a little early and fill out an in store application (if I hadn't already). Interview was 4 days after initial phone call. Day of the interview I met with two supervisors who asked basic questions. I was then asked a few personal questions about my current availability. Given details about different positions being held and what specific job duties were. Interview ended with the two supervisors and was asked to stay for a second interview with the store manager. Interview with store manager was a little more personal. She asked where I previously worked and what my job duties were, why I didn't work there anymore, and if references listed have good contact numbers. Two out of the three references needed to come back "good" to be considered for employment. Interview ended with store manager saying she'll be in contact with me. I received a call the day after my interview saying they would like hire me and orientation is on the 1st at 8am.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Marshalls in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was inviting, easygoing, and really gave me a feel for the work environment. I dropped off my application and followed up five days later for an interview. The assistant manager interviewed me and she asked me mostly situational questions which were tricky, but she told me I did very well. Got a call back the next day and went in for my second interview with the manager. She didn't even ask me questions, just talked to me about my life and the Marshalls community. She told me about training and the wage increase and she was super nice. I'm going next week for my orientation.
