Full Time Assistant Manager Interview

Full Time Assistant Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Maurices.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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 Details – No negotiation, but they did pay what I had asked for.

Full Time Assistant Manager Interview

Full Time Assistant Manager
Houghton, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Maurices in October 2008.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Questions

Easy Interview

Full Time Assistant Manager Interview

Full Time Assistant Manager
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Maurices in April 2012.

Interview Details – 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.
