    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Euless, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Marshalls.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews--one with the Store Manager and the second with the Assistant Manager. Both of them were very personable and planning both interviews went very smoothly. The overall perception I got of the office was not very special, just noted that the computers and software in the main office seemed old and outdated.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't remember very well as the interview was around two years ago--they were mostly behavioral questions e.g. A time you showed leadership experience, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was not able to negotiate much due to it being my first job starting at minimum wage.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tracy, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marshalls in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call 2 weeks later for a group interview. There were 10 people including myself being interviewed. Both people conducting the interviews made me fell welcome and were very nice and professional. I was called about 45 minutes after the interview and they asked for my availability and if I had any references. 15 minutes after that I got another call and was offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • They have a credit card that they want the customers to sign up for, so one of the questions was to attempt to sell the card to the manager as if she was a customer. Total curveball but be creative and you will be fine! They are VERY big on customer service!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No price negotiation.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Marshalls in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is easy you are asked easy questions of situational scenarios and if they feel you are what they want you would be hired on the spot my advice is when you turn in your application give it to the manager not an employee present yourself well ok

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Marshalls in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via Snagajob and got a call within the next week asking to go in for an interview the next day. When I got there I had to fill out another app on paper and had to wait for the interviewer who wasn't there yet. After waiting 10 15min a guy (who was already there) came up and told me that they didn't know that there was an interview scheduled and that he was going to do it. The interview went well and he asked me typical questions about work history and school. No behavioral questions so it was pretty easy. Afterwards he stressed on customer service and said that based on what I told him he feels very good about me and basically told me that I had the job but was gonna call a previous job for a reference. 2 days later I got a phone call asking to come in for orientation in 2 days!
