Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Maurices in April 2015.

Interview

I got to the interview and asked for the person that I had spoke to on the phone. She was off for the day and I stated I had a interview with her at 3. The lady states that I'm interviewing with her instead and it was scheduled at 3:30. She finished her project and met me about 10 minutes later. When we go into the office, she lets me know that the position that they are hiring for is part time sales associate that would be 10-15 hours per week. If the person who had called me earlier in the week would of stated that I would not of even went to the interview. Waste of time!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Maurices.

    Interview

    I had to take a 'test' before the interview started---100 questions, with answers like 'I highly agree', or 'neutral', which is fairly easy to pass, just don't think too much about what's right or wrong, but go with your first answer. I was asked basic sales/manager questions about my previous jobs. We talked a lot about sales goals and credit card goals. It was a very laid back interview. I got a call back that night for a second interview with a different manager for the next day, which went pretty much the same as the first interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question they asked was if I wanted to interview for the store manager position that was open! And, since I didn't quite have the experience I felt I needed, I declined.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but they did pay what I had asked for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Maurices (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview went very well. It is an excellent way to balm the nerves of the nervous people. Group interviews the first time around were very easy. Questions wer very generic, nothing about "what do you know about us". All consisting of questions that pertained to your personality and how you handle things.
    I was called back for a second interview 3 weeks later and I am waiting to hear what happens. They are making the decision in a few days.
    This interview Is very easy for the people who get nervous and choke up. The people are very friendly and personalbe and they make you feel at ease.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Maurices (Houghton, MI) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Sucess profile is first - this tells the company if you are a good fit or not. It's not a personality test, it tests you in categories such as reliability/dependability, morals/ethics, attitude, etc. If that goes well, a 1:1 interview is given and sometimes a second one is required. References are checked, and if they are good, the store manager consults with the district manager. If they both like the candidate, an offer is made. Questions that sounds like they're negative aren't looking for answers that make you seem "bad" - they are looking for how your handle a situation where you can't go to work, or can't get something done, because management knows life gets in the way sometimes.
