Sales Associate Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Menards (Saint Ann, MO) in June 2015.

Interview

Worst company I got interviewed by. I went to their job fair in St. Ann, Mo. I was dressed in a suit and had my resume(keep in mind that I have experience in retail, management, and customer service with clean background.) I fillled out an application and waited 2 hours before being interviewed. I was confident, easy-going, and open-minded. I get a "we will call you" and yet they dont call me for a month, but they hired people who came in interviews with flat bill hats, pants hanging low, etc with no experience. Joke of a company.

    Interview

    Hiring process was somewhat unorganized you almost needed to know someone to get a job that wasn't just the morning stocking crew. Plan to interview in the middle of the a busy store ... process is open so its a little unnerving to have associates eating lunch at the next table while you try to answer questions.

    Interview Questions

    • they make you take this test of random questions ... they say it does matter - it does - they wont hire you if you fail   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Menards (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Very simple and quick interview/hiring process. I was looking for a quick job after a cross-country move. Filled out the application in-store, and was called in for an interview next day. Very simple interview. Basically they went over all the same information that was on the application, as well as ask you about your previous work history. I was offered a job immediately after the interview, pending a drug test. They did mention that your paychecks are delayed by 2 weeks. This means that your first paycheck will not come for 4 weeks due to how they handle pay roll.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Menards (Wyoming, MI) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Filled out an application and was called a few days later. Scheduled an interview for the next day. Rather easy interview, however, the store doesn't seem to have a grasp on it's organization and doesn't like to follow up. The HR guy said I would know within a day or two whether or not I got the job and he never called, so I called him, but he never called me back. After finally getting in touch with him he said he'd let me know by the end of the week and I never heard anything.

    Negotiation

    Very easy, Menards has a VERY HIGH turnover rate and are DESPERATE to get the new meat in for the hamburger grinder, if super DESPERATE for a job this is the place, plus they hire repeat felons, if you have committed multiple felonies, Menards is for you, when I worked there they hired a Cashier the same day as me who had 40 felony convictions, no kidding, found this out from guy who googled her name and 40 convictions came up.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Menards.

    Interview

    1 interview, then a drug test. As long as you say the right things and you're available, you should get hired. The interview for sales associates don't really last long, they really just need to know the bare minimum. As far as atmosphere, it's very relaxed, and people are busy either helping guest or working on something.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic interview questions, such as greatest strength, what's your biggest weakness, so on and so forth. Their biggest thing is availability, can you work nights and weekends.   Answer Question
