    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Old Time Pottery (Wilmington, NC).

    Interview

    Interview was nothing special very much like any other interview with alot of the same questions. Interviewer asked questions on past employment to see if I was familiar with working retail.

    Negotiation

    There was not a negotiation phase. I was informed that they pay more than min. wage because they expected more than min. wage work but I later found out that they may start you out over min. wage because the raise percentage is very low and it comes yearly.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Time Pottery (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I applied at a job fair for a store that was about to be opened.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. I either accepted their terms or not.

    Office/Cash Room Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Murfreesboro, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Old Time Pottery (Murfreesboro, TN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online, and was contacted by phone to set up an interview. It took a couple days of phone tag and haggling with the odd store office hours to get a set interview date and time. There was a single interview with the Assistant Store Manager (who is no longer with the Murfreesboro store) that lasted roughly 25-30 minutes. He asked the standard retail questions about experiences with the public and how I would handle situations with customers. He asked about my resume and skills set as it would pertain to multiple positions within the store. I was thanked for my time and told I would be contacted within the week. The management team seemed like they were excited about the store and involved, however, many of the hourly employees seemed like they did not care and were not happy with job they had.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation in which you provided excellent customer service and went above and beyond your job requirements to make a customer leave happy.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I wasn't told the final position, pay, or hours until I came in to fill out the paperwork and was not given any options other than take it or not.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Old Time Pottery (Madison, AL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very basic. Questions like: What is customer service to you? Have you ever or how often are you late to work? What would you do if you didn't get along with another employee? Are you willing to work weekends and holidays? Has there ever been a time that you couldn't complete a task? How did you handle it? The interview itself was short. The manager followed a cookie-cutter list of questions. Personally, I practiced a lot of the questions that were asked. This allowed me to have well worded answers and the hiring manager found that impressive.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if you didn't get along with another coworker?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations offered.
