Interview Details

I walked in one day and asked if they were looking to hire and they were. When I told them that I already work at the mall, they seemed to want to interview me right away! I was scheduled for an interview for a couple of days later and told to go online and fill out every thing out. I went in and interviewed with an assistant manager. It was an easy peasy interview. Typical questions asked from predetermined sheet: What was your worst customer and how did you deal? How would you deal working at a busy location? It was a piece of cake and the assistant manager was young like me so it was no pressure at all. She told me that she liked me and would sell me to the store manager. I was told to call in a couple days to check and see if the store manager had made a decision. When I called, she informed me that I would need to come in and talk to her just to put a name to face and talk a little about the position. Went in a few days later and met with the store manager. She basically just told me a little bit about the store and company culture but did ask what I was looking for in the company. Next thing you know she asked what my availability was and what I would want my pay to be

Interview Questions
  • Nothing surprising at all. If you have prior retail experience you will be ok. Have examples, be personable   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Really didn't know how to negotiate so I just told them current pay at my other job. I was told that they could offer me a couple more cents, so I took it. When I got my confirmation email, I had gotten what I asked for on my application which was .25 cents more than originally offered.

    Interview Details

    If you’re a girl I would suggest wearing all black and show that you can walk in heels. If you’re a guy very professional in all black. (this is their uniform so fit in)

    In my interview they asked a few basic interview questions; like why do you want to work for nine west/ why are you leaving your last position/ where do you see yourself in five years. The basics if you ever go into an interview. The hard part if never done before is the store manager will take you out to the sales floor or have shoes in his office and he/she will act like a customer and ask you to sell the footwear to them. I personally winged it ! never had to do a personal sale like that before. Smile / be friendly & try your best.

    Interview Questions
    • When my store manager asked me to sell directly to them, I was not expecting that. & of course it wouldn’t be an interview if they do not act like the worst customer alive.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very Easy! They will work with you.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and two weeks later got a call for an in person interview. The first time I went in, I had an interview with the assistant manager. During, this interview, she told me that the position was seasonal, which was not included in the job listing. She asked me basic questions and told me that their was a certain amount of sales that individual associates needed to reach during the week. Also, stated that associates must own a pair of Nine West shoes. Two days later, I did an interview with the manager who was really rude.
