    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.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marshalls.

    Interview

    When I first came in I called for the manager and was then lead to the side at the back of the store where the manager's offices were at. I sat there with other 1 other person in a white room waiting for the manager to come in. She left and came back with 2 people asking them to take a seat. She asked questions like if we were eligible to work there, etc. Not to many questions really. She then proceeded to hand all of us job applications and to fill them out as honestly as we can. After we were done filling them out, she thanked us and said she will see us on Monday.
