Interview Details – Very low key interview. You will be interviewed twice. Usually once by the ASM and once by the Store manager. If they send you to Drug testing that means you got the job (As long as you pass).
Questions will be based on your experiences with customers, and if you haven't worked in a retail environment they will ask you to relate it to other job experience.
Make sure you know about the position you are applying for before going into the interview. They will ask you questions regarding the type of work you will be doing.
Interview Question – "How did you handle a customer who was Irritate over her/his service"
They will also ask questions not on the interview guide, so be ready for a few curve balls they might ask you about your personal life, or about other jobs. Make sure you don't bad mouth any of your other jobs, or the employers you worked for. View Answer

I was able to do so becaues I have 15 years in retail management experience in the exact same industry.
