    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at New Balance.

    Interview Details

    I came in to get an application after I read about an opening online. The guy immediately asked "please don't be 17" and I said I'm not. I am 16. He said "even worse, come back in 2 years." Why list an opening without putting any job requirements?

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fenton, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at New Balance in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. The recruiter emailed me and we set up a phone interview. After completing the phone interview, we set up an in person interview with the department manager and the person that would be your direct supervisor if hired. After the interview, I waited a few days and I sent an email to the recruiter. About 5 minutes later I go a call and they offered me the job barring passing a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • Very long in person interview. I probably took a little over an hour. They really pry deep into your work history. They asked a question about what the job listing. What from the listing made you want to apply? It seems simple, but it was kind of difficult. Be sure to really review the listing and the site before the in person interview.   View Answer
