Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Nashville, TN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Nine West in September 2010.

Interview Details – 1 Interview with District Manager and 1 phone interview with the Regional Manager. Both were very brief for a Store manager position. I was surprised that I received an offer. I had networked with the District Manager and knew a previous Store Manager, so that helped. I did not think it was a thorough interview.

Interview Question – How would you handle employee theft?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. It was a fair offer.

Then she said if interested she would set me up for an interview with DM over phone. The next day she called and said that i was hired the DM didnt need to speak with me.
