    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Marshalls in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty typical. "When can you work?", "Do you have any questions for me?", and the like were typical interview questions. It wasn't really that big a deal. If you are able to talk, are not a violent human being, and are not hallucinating you should do just fine.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Marshalls.

    Interview Details

    Went through 4 interviews - all of which were the most intermediete interviews I have ever been on. They all asked basic questions; "How do you organize your day" , "How do you hold others accountable" , "Define 'Culture'" ... I walked out of all 4 interviews knowing I aced them because I didn't even have to think about my answers! I think McDonalds would have challenged me more!

    My perception of the staff was positive, I felt like they were good people... but I also felt like my background with other retailers had put me decades ahead of them. I feel like Marshall's is stuck in the 1990s, lack of technology, poor Customer Service training, etc. Very workload based.

    Interview Questions
    • None were difficult - like I said, McDonalds would have challenged me more!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I negotiated.
