    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview Details

    It was a pretty easy interview. They ask typical sales associate interview questions. Nothing too crazy or difficult. They ask about your background, your experience in retail and in other fields and why you want to work there. It took only one interview with the store manager. It's part-time so be ready they don't give you many hours. You will need another job too.

    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norridge, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New York & Company in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with about 4 other individuals. The manager asked each person different but stereotypical interview questions: describe a time when you dealt with a difficult customer and what did you do, tell me about yourself, sell me a NY&C credit card, describe what you did at your previous jobs, etc. We were told that the average can get up to 30+ hours a week which is not at all the case! WE GET 4 HRS. OF WORK AND MANY ON-CALL SHIFTS and 9/10 they don't need you. Only go for this position if you, already, have another job and only need very petty cash.

    Interview Questions
    • They give you about 2 minutes to look at their credit card perks and memorize as many of the benefits as you can and then try to convince the interviewer to obtain one. You can just look at their website if you need that info.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They're incredibly cheap :,( but they're willing to work with you if you have another job.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview Details

    simple easy paper application; basic interview with myself and the store manager in the office; very relaxed and casual meeting more than an interview; walked into the store, handed over my resume, watched the manager look at it and set me up immediately with an interview the next day; no need to wear a suit to the interview here or bring a resume, they did not care about either one, the manager was wearing a super casual outfit and I looked way over dressed

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty basic questions, "what would you do in this scenario"; "what is the best/worst work experience you have had" etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation phase, company automatically starts at minimum wage for sales associates

    Pretty standard for part-time associate work in a mall. Interview was average, except you had to pick out an outfit and explain why you chose what you did (they want to see if you can help customers do this).

    Interview Questions
    • The outfit selection portion of the interview was not expected.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty standard again. I asked for more than they could do, but because i asked i got a higher starting rate than other employees.
